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.
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.
Patterns is a great example of the power of long exposure photography. Brett captured this massive image nearly half an hour before sunrise on the rugged slopes of the Great Sand Dunes in southern Colorado. Standing at over 750 feet high and traveling for over 30 miles this dynamic landscape is a testament to the ever-changing power and grace of Mother Nature. As the sun began to illuminate the atmosphere, faint but intricate patterns came into Brett’s view revealing the sculpted slopes of each dune that the midnight winds had carved. As he manuvered across ridge after ridge in the early dawn he came upon this image and carefully captured the moment with a single shot. Brett decided to make this print a one of a kind print for the collector who truly appreciates not only the beauty of the image… but the journey and the story that makes it so unique.
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.
