My early life was devoted to photography, taking an interest from a very young age and then working as a professional news media photographer from 1982 to 2015.
I always enjoyed creating artistic-styled images in addition to my press work, and my output of these ramped-up with the increased possibilities that came with the advent of digital photography in the late 90s. I have greatly enjoyed using these modern imaging methods to produce striking and original works.
I live in Brisbane, Australia and mainly exhibit in my local area. I aim to produce a variety of works to appeal to a wide range of tastes and am always delighted to receive comments, so feel free to let me know your thoughts.
I am the author of the book Paths to Artistic Imaging in Photoshop, ISBN-13: 978-0987574602, which details many of the methods that I use to produce my work. It is available from my personal website (http://www.russbrownart.com).
As well as my original work here, I you will find over 100 historic images from the American Library of Congress, which I have enhanced using the most up to date methods, yielding amazing and beautiful images which are a delight to see. Please take a look and be sure to use the zoom tool to see the extraordinary detail.
