Exposure was filmed on the rugged beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and is a true artistic expression of Brett’s passion for long exposure photography and pushing the limits of our perception on the world around us. Utilizing advanced equipment that can capture such detail during several minutes, the calm ocean in front of Brett’s lens magically painted this image on film. Exposure will surely become a classic and is one of Brett’s favorite prints. It is available in a limited edition of 250 prints.
Brett has taken long exposure photography to a new level with Infinity, a rare photograph of famous Delicate Arch in Arches National Park. “I was patiently watching a magnificent sunset fall upon the arch” recalls Brett. “But I wasn’t there to photograph a sunset.” As light turned to dark the stars began to paint the sky. The Milky Way shifted from left to right as Brett aligned his camera on the sandstone slope below. Taking only a 45 second exposure and pushing his camera aperture to the limit to reduce the effects of the Earth’s rotation, Brett captured Infinity when the Milky Way was framed by this iconic landmark.
Nestled deep in the Appalachian mountains is a small, one lane forest road. It has no name and is not marked with any signs. It winds back and forth from the top of a mountain to the base of a small stream that carves its way through a valley full of colorful trees and large boulders. Brett was fortunate enough to find this hidden gem and capture the tight corners and lush foliage that is Silent Turn.
“I remember driving down this one lane road as dawn was quickly approaching” recalls Brett. “We had no idea where it went but I wanted to capture the slope and tight turns that made it such a charming little road.” The result is a unique photograph full of adventure and beautiful scenery.
Enchanted Forest is a view into the complex, yet elegant structure of the eastern American ecosystem. Captured in the Appalachian Mountains early one autumn morning, Brett came upon this perfect oasis of color while hiking along a stream he was looking to photograph. “The scene immediately captivated me.” recalls Brett. “It was just too perfect. We had hiked for many miles looking to capture all of the colors we were experiencing and this was the moment that it all came together.” Enchanted Forest depicts both the grand beauty and intricate details that our amazing environment has to offer. The wide variety of colors and textures are only visible for a few short days before falling to the ground and waiting for winter to come.
Road Less Traveled is a whimsical photograph taken in the back country of Yellowstone National Park in Montana. Captured by Brett on a foggy morning in early autumn this image is a classic example of how composition and natural light create beautiful moments. “I came upon this clearing at dawn while hiking in a dense fog. I fell in love with the rustic wooden path and decided to wait in hopes that the fog would lift enough to reveal the lone tree that lies in the middle of the marsh.” Brett was pleasantly suprised that his patients paid off. The result is Road Less Traveled and the new showcase of his Fall, 2012 collection.
