Russ Brown - About / Contact

For 33 years until late 2015, I was a professional news media and artistic photographer. I worked initially as a cadet at the Herald & Weekly Times newspaper group in Melbourne and later for various organisations in Brisbane, including as staff media photographer at World Expo 88, and later for 21 years at Quest Newpapers and the Courier-Mail.


I continue to produce new artistic pieces, despite no longer working professionally as a photographer. And just to clarify, I live in Brisbane, Australia and am not the nice chap of the same name from Adobe, who incidentally, wrote a very nice appraisal of my book. - (The Russell Brown Show site is here)


I hold Adobe Photoshop accreditation and was a member of the Beta-reader team for US author Dan Margulis' books Modern Photoshop Color Workflow and the new 10th anniversary second edition of Photoshop LAB Color.


Unlike in "my day", almost everyone now has a smart phone or fancy digital camera gear, easy access to powerful digital imaging software and therefore considers that makes them "photographers". This makes it increasingly difficult to find high quality, artistic imagery amongst all the background noise. I hope that you will find my work to be substantially different, more creative and of higher quality than much of the photographic work commonly available today.
