We've all heard the legend... but who is the man???

My name is bret. I'm the taller guy in the photo above! I take photographs, and would love the opportunity to meet with you to show you why. As you can see, my emphasis is digital conceptual art photography, as well as capturing the special moments of any bride and groom's wedding day. I've been a photographer for many years, photographing all over Saint louis and the area, and I specialize in a bevy of different styles of photography; with the wonderful opportunity to capture commercial, weddings, media, journalistic, contemporary, as well as the abstract. I have a background starting in the Zone System of Ansel Adams, moving to K-12 schools portraits, and having the pleasure of working with amazing sorority and fraternity members from around the nation. After all of this, I still get a kick out of watching memories being made on film. I made this site so I can show off why I love photography! the amazing people i've met, the places i've had the pleasure of seeing, and the grand adventrues in photography i've been on.... so please, look around, take your shoes off... enjoy your visit!
