Kurt R. Brown is a native
of the San Francisco Bay Area, and has lived in California for the majority
of his life, apart from 3 months in Barcelona and 3.5 months in Hawaii. After
High School, he moved to Pasadena to go to the American Academy of Dramatic
Arts, then to Santa Cruz for community college and to be near his grandfather,
then to San Francisco, where he attended SFSU and graduated Magna Cum Laude
with a Bachelor's Degree in Radio and Television Broadcasting. He lived in
San Francisco for 10 years and then traveled for the majority of 2006 before
moving to Los Angeles, where he currently resides.
Kurt has been interested in photography and art since he was a young child, and grew up using an old film camera that his Dad gave him. Kurt composed each shot carefully, because he knew the film and developing was expensive. Because of this, he rarely included people in his shots because "they moved too much." Still-life was his main subject because it was just that: still. Now, with the advent of high-quality digital cameras, he is able to print and edit only the photos he wants, and there is no film to worry about. Because of this, Kurt has taken a real liking to photographing people, with an emphasis on artistic and physique portraiture. However, he still enjoys other types of photography as well.
