Brian always had a love for photography but never knew it could be more than just a hobby. Brian had a track scholarship out of high school but decided to join the Air Force instead. Once in the Air Force he passed the testing to qualify to become a Pararescue PJ. Pararescue is a Special Forces division of the Air Force where PJs are trained to rescue and save lives. After becoming a PJ Brian completed many missions and saved many lives during his service. In 1986, after a 6 year tour in the Air Force, Brian focused his energy into himself completing college and becoming a stockbroker.
He soon realized he didn’t like being behind a desk and started an internet modeling company called Global Model Registry in 1995. Brian hired photographers to photograph the GMR models and this is when he started developing an understanding for the business. Brian would spend the next 3 years watching and learning from many skilled photographers before he started shooting himself.
Brian’s first big break was when he attended the Surf Expo where he met the owner of Body Glove Swimwear. The marketing team at Body Glove felt that Brian had a good grasp on the brand and image they wanted for their ads and billboards. Brian landed the job and became the Body Glove photographer for many years. He soon became very well known in the Swimwear Industry as his Body Glove photography graced the covers of industry magazines, national ads and billboards. Brian’s shooting style didn’t go unnoticed as he started booking jobs for other swimwear companies and his career took off.
Brian started to make a big name for himself when he created the Swimwear Network International Calendar “SNI”. The SNI calendar was made-up of 12 sexy swimwear photos from his top swimwear clients. Brian used SNI calendar as a marketing tool and distributed thousands at all the Swimwear Conventions for free. It was a brilliant decision and such a big success that Brian decided to publish the SNI calendar nationally. SNI made Brian a nationally self-published photographer where his work then became noticed by many top selling glamour magazines.
It wasn’t long before Brian’s sexy swimwear style photography started gracing the spreads and covers of magazines like Stuff, Maxim, FHM, Esquire, and Playboy. The internet had an even greater impact which launched Brian’s name and images worldwide. Brian’s classy, sexy photos are now on all the top men’s magazines websites from Sports Illustrated, Ask Men, Maxim, FHM, and countless more worldwide. Brian has traveled the world shooting in the most sexy and exotic places. Still to this day he is best known for the publishing of his SNI Calendar every year.
The SNI Calendar has been published for the last ten years and has become one of the hottest selling swimwear calendars in the US and Canada. SNI was voted the #1 glamour calendar by the National Calendar Association. Also Brian publishes his new 2014 Fantastic 12 Calendar this year and it looks to be a best seller.
Brian is now focused on sharing his self developed success with everyone by launching the new ProPhotographerSeries.com. The website will not only offer Brian’s DVDs but will be a visual showcase for photographers to learn how to shoot amazing photos and get them published.
A very special thanks goes out to Erich Schroeder at Fusion 1 Productions for his amazing video production and graphic design talents.

Most importantly a very loving thanks to my parents for their love and support. Lastly, I am so blessed by my true love Nickie!!
