“The idea of capturing a unique moment in time has always been intriguing to me. Expanding on that simple concept is what continues to drive my work forward to this day.”
Bryan Minear is a Midwest-based designer and fine art and landscape photographer. He’s also a father, Star Wars nerd, and self-proclaimed pizza connoisseur.
Get to know Bryan before seeing him speak at our 2019 Pixel Photo Fest.
WHERE HE STARTED
He fell in love with the process and soon picked up a DSLR to supplement his design work. Before he knew it, he was teaching himself to use off-camera strobe lighting for portraits and building a business. After a couple of years, he realized his passion wasn’t in portrait photography, but in more creative pursuits.
What he shoots
In 2015 he decided to pursue fine art photography as a primary creative outlet. Before long, he started gaining some steam on Instagram and attracting clients large and small. Today, he shoots landscape, lifestyle, and commercial photography as a career while still working a full-time job as a Graphic Designer.
What he shoots with
Since picking up the original X100 in 2011, Fujifilm X Series cameras have transformed his style and technique, and have since become his gear of choice for all aspects of his work.
Why he shoots
Bryan’s goal is to portray atmosphere and emotion through his work. Whether shooting locally in the Midwest or traveling and teaching around the world, Bryan hopes to leave an impact on the world. His interests are broad, but can be best boiled down to a concentration in fine art and landscape photography.
From weddings and commercial work to his true passion landscape and cityscape photography, Bryan has been a part of the industry for over 10 years and is only just getting started traveling and teaching workshops.
What to expect from Bryan at Pixel Photo Fest
