After 20 years as a staff photographer at The Register-Guard in Eugene (Ore.), Brian left his position in 2018 to be a freelance photographer and video producer with the goal of helping organizations tell their stories visually.
Brian arrived in Eugene in 1999 and spent two decades making storytelling images across Oregon. Highlights include photographing the last four U.S. Presidents, golf legends Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer at the Fred Meyer Challenge, Michael Jordan's final game at the Rose Garden, the Eugene anarchist riots, the Great American Solar Eclipse, four U.S. Track & Field Olympic Trials, Oregon's Rose Bowl victory and the inaugural College Football Playoff National Championship game in Arlington, Texas.
His editorial work has appeared in numerous publications including the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Associated Press, Harper's Magazine, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated and ESPN. His work has been recognized several times in the National Press Photographers Association's annual Pictures of the Year competition.
Brian lives in Eugene with his wife, Judy. Their remarkable son Lewis graduated from the University of Oregon in 2018 and is currently living in Vietnam.
