Bryan Minear is a Midwest-based designer, photographer, father, Star Wars nerd, and pizza connoisseur. From a young age Bryan was inspired by Ansel Adams’ ethereal landscape work, which paved the direction he wanted to go as an artist.
Bryan’s always showed interests in cameras and technology from a young age, but it wasn’t until college where he was pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design that started shooting and developing film in the darkroom. He fell in love with the process and soon picked up a DSLR to supplement his design work. Before he knew it he was teaching himself to use off-camera strobe lighting for portraits and building a business. After a couple of years, he realized that the business was not something that he enjoyed in the slightest and a creative renaissance started to occur.
In 2015 he decided to pursue fine art photography as a primary creative outlet. Before long, he started gaining some steam on instagram and attracting clients large and small. Since then he has been shooting landscape, lifestyle, and commercial photography as a career while still working a full time job as a Graphic Designer.
His goal is to portray atmosphere and emotion through his work. Whether he is shooting locally in the Midwest or traveling and teaching around the world, Bryan hopes to leave an impact on the world.
Bryan is an Official Fujifilm X-Photographer, as well as a Nisi Filters and GNARBOX ambassador.
