Mystere is a dreamy photograph of a crystal clear river in a small slot canyon in Southern Utah. Brett was captivated by an unusual crack in the stone where water seemed to jet through it, carving it deeper and deeper. “I immediately saw the photograph in my mind. A cloud trapped between two stones.” recalls Brett. “I knew that with the right exposure I could turn the water into fog and at the same time capture the goldish reflection of the warm canyon walls above.” Being careful not to slip, Brett stabilized his tripod and captured the shot. The result is a magical image that can be displayed horizontally or vertically.
Photographed on a clear, calm evening in the soutwest desert of the United States Brett captured Circle of Life. Sitting high above the canyon below, tucked under an alcove carved into vertical cliffs rests this secret Indian ruin. The purpose of the site is still debated among archeologists along with the age but one thing is certain… the view from this secluded balcony is breathtaking. Brett sat patiently by his camera for hours as the light in the distance shifted and slowly illuminated the canyon in warm hues and soft light.
Temple of the Gods was captured on an early morning in Utah as the sun was peaking over the La Sal Mountains in the distance. An hour before the sun rose the underside of this amazing arch began to glow a bright red from the warm sunlight slowly illuminating the horizon. It was an unusual experience for Brett as many of his photographs feature such rare light but are unnoticable to the naked eye. Photographing this moment seconds after sunrise allowed Brett to capture the soft glow of the sandstone while maintaining awesome clarity and definition in the distant valley.
Waking up early to photograph this magnificent sandstone Arch, Brett captured Rare Light nearly an hour before sunrise. His camera, stabilized from wind and vibrations by a heavy tripod, spent over five minutes collecting the faint light refracted off our Earth’s atmosphere and falling upon the desert floor. Brett has mastered the difficult task of long-exposure photography and Rare Light is one of his greatest achievements. For years he has wanted to capture the rare purple hues of a desert morning and now he has.
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.
