Bryan Rowe Colorado - New York

"I absolutely love what I do! The immense fulfillment I get from sculpting light to bring out the inner beauty of every product or subject I photograph is what keeps me constantly excited about photography.

I'm a massive fan of detail, color and simple compositions (if you couldn't already tell) and I specialise in product, liquids, and environmental portraiture.

In a very saturated market, I believe it's this passion of wanting to go the extra mile to get the very best out of what I'm shooting that sets me apart... but hopefully that's undeniably apparent in my work.

I was born and raised in Durban, South Africa. I grew up skateboarding, surfing and later found a passion for snowboarding which brought me to the incredible state of Colorado.

I enjoy a good laugh and a tasty craft beer after a long day of work (beer on short days too). I also thoroughly enjoy working with clients that are creative, enjoy their job as much as I do, and connect with my aesthetic. I'm lucky to live in beautiful Boulder, Colorado with my wife, cat and baby daughter."

Cameron Karsten Pacific Northwest

"We are professional problem-solvers. It is a must in this industry, especially when dealing with the fluidity and transient nature of water.

Things never go 'right', but to make this manageable, one must change their understanding of the word 'right'. There is no right or left, up or down, salted or unsalted. Instead it is everywhere and nowhere, thus allowing a system of thought that is based in flexibility.

Let go and go with the flow."

Cameron Karsten is represented by The Gren Group.
