Brian is a working photographer living in Western China who has a passion for teaching photography, participating in the growing photographic community, and when he has the chance - helping NGO’s in Southeast Asia communicate their stories – all in an effort to actively do good rather than complain simply complain.
In late 2009 Brian helped start a company that facilitates socially-conscious one-of-a-kind Lumen Dei photo tours throughout Tibet – providing socially responsible and culturally non-destructive photo opportunities throughout the region.
Brian’s passion is unique photos of unique places and people while distinctly focusing on the humanity, uniqueness, sensativity, human connection, and creativity that is found in every culture. Brian especially enjoy showing the dichotomy of modernization and it’s effects, both good and bad, on those cultures experiencing it for the first time. Furthermore, Brian enjoys telling the stories that make people who they are all while providing opportunities for people to get involved in helping others while continuing to serve the NGO communities of Southeast Asia.
