Ross Brown was born in New Zealand in 1969 and from the age of 13 he knew that he wanted to be a photographer.He worked tirelessly every day after school to save enough money to buy his first range finder camera. Later that year after a family holiday around the South Island of New Zealand he returned home with nearly 600 images and an obsession that had just begun. Ross won his first gold Advertising award whilst he was still an assistant. His focus nowadays is Advertising and Design, where he works within a wide range of styles and techniques, covering subject matter as diverse as Landscape, Portraiture, Sport, Animals, Still life and Conceptual work. His images are a mix of contemporary and classical, they are inherently elegant, and meticulous in detail. He combines a mastery of light and form, mood and atmosphere, with a strong emotive quality and sensitivity to his subject matter. These factors along with his beautiful colour grades and carefully crafted compositions create his signature style. Ross’s work has won many prestigious industry awards both Nationally and Internationally, including a Grand Prix and Gold Lion at Cannes. One of his photographs is hanging in the Musee du Quai Branley in Paris. Ross has travelled extensively throughout Africa, Asia, China, India, Europe and North America and currently divides his work time between LA, New York and New Zealand. Aside from his work and precious family time his passions include art, architecture, travel, snow boarding, paddle boarding, fly fishing and boating.
