Santa Fe New Mexico based photographer Brian Edwards has been photographing since the early 1980s. He studied at the College of DuPage (Glen Ellyn, Illinois), and at Santa Fe Community College, where he studied Documentary Photography and Advanced Black and White (film) Photography with Norman Mauskopf and alternative processes with Kathleen Bishop. Brian also studied studio lighting and portrait photography at the Santa Fe Workshops with Doug Merriam and David Robin where he also studied advanced platinum printing with Christopher James and albumen printing with Jennifer Schlesinger.
He is currently enrolled in the MFA program in Photography at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
Brian received a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of California, San Diego.
He works in a variety of formats with both traditional, digital, and alternative/historical methods. Much of his recent work has been shot with tilt-shift lenses since these lenses allow for perspective adjustments in camera thereby lessening the need for post-processing.
One of Brian's images was recently chosen for the Don't Take Pictures Picture of the Day.
