Brett photographed Land’s End on a warm summer morning along the rugged coastline of the Atlantic Ocean. Previously hidden by white sand, these unusal rock formations were revealed after a hurricane battered the shore. An ever changing landscape is why Brett constantly visits rugged beaches in search of new opportunities to photograph Mother Nature’s beauty.
Tucked away in the high country of central Colorado, this old mill was once part of a thriving city full of adventure and treasure. Now it is one of only a few structures remaining in what is now a ghost town. Accessible only by ATV, this icon of the Rocky Mountains captivated Brett while searching for old structures full of character. Using a rotating camera head, Brett slowly captured Gold Country as his optics swung left to right.
Hidden Hammock portrays the peaceful solitude of the Gulf of Mexico shoreline. Taken during the summer months on the coast of Florida, Brett traveled to this site a dozen times before finally capturing this final print. “I wanted it to be just right” explains Brett about his quest to capture Hidden Hammock. “The shot was difficult because there were many shadows to contend with and a bright ocean in the background. In order to get my exposure dialed in, I waited until sunset when the shadows were at a minimum and the light was soft. Using a semi-long exposure I was able to pick up the subtle, golden hues in the tree bark and still maintain the ocean in the background.”
