Kurt R Brown is a San Francisco Bay Area native, and has lived in California for most of his life. He has been practicing figure photography since 2003, when some of his pencil drawings were discovered online by an art dealer. As an adolescent, he enjoyed photographing nature, and now brings his love of the outdoors and natural lighting to his photography. Although he has red/green colorblindness, his work is often praised for its richness of colour. Kurt R Brown's photography has been featured in books and magazines internationally, as well as greeting cards, calendars, advertisements and billboards. He has three self-published books, as well as "Earthly Beauty," by German publisher, Bruno Gmünder.
