Jeffrey Brown | Photographer | http://www.jeffreybrown.com/
Jeffrey Lamont Brown brings a fresh, reality-based approach to advertising projects for print and TV clients around the world. Recent awards include: being named one of the “200 Best Photographers Worldwide” by Leurzer’s Archive, PX3 Prix de la Photographie Paris, IPA - Lucie â€śBest of showâ€ť and Communication Arts Photo Annual. His unique style, known as â€śbeautiful realismâ€ť has evolved naturally over nearly two decades behind the lens. It finds its roots in authentic experiences but goes beyond the real in different, and often subtle, ways. Sometimes it has a bit of a mystical twist; other times we give it an edgier look or a bit of humor. But always we produce imagery with amazing light and highly stylized visuals in keeping with our visual integrity Jeffrey believes that every shot, however comprehensively produced and tightly choreographed, contains â€śreal momentsâ€ť that serve his clientsâ€™ desire to present products and ideas in the most compelling way.
