His father, Eugene studied in an art school, won a scholarship to art school and ultimately was offered a job with a California startup called Disney, but the big depression was underway and it didn’t seem like a good time to be starting a career in art, so Eugene took a solid, dependable job with a large Cleveland manufacturer and never looked back. Brian always had a appreciation for art, coming of age in the era of great picture magazines like Life and Look, with contributing photographers like: Pete Turner, Art Kane and Richard Avedon.
During Brian’s career as a commercial photographer he worked with 8 x 10 Deardorfs, 4x5 cameras, Hasleblads, Mamiyas, and 35 mm Nikons. Then he introduced to the world of digital photography and in 1994 when he launched his first website when there were few professional photographers on the web. In 1995 was hired by a dot com company as a web designer. He rode out the dot com boom and bust and for over 20 years designed websites. Combining his passions of photography and design in 2004 launched MyLoupe.com the stock photographers marketplace. He represented almost 1000 talented photographers around the world. MyLoupe was eventually acquired by Universal Image Group. Today he is a photographer again working for herself, always inspired by the work of impressionist painters Monet, Van Gogh, Renoir, Manet, Cezanne and others, as well as by some of the post-impressionists, surrealists, expressionists, abstract artists and more. His post production processing used today evokes a painterly effect. Sometimes letting go of a little detail, abstracting a bit, creates a new image where the viewer becomes creatively engaged with the image.
