From Brian Bostrom’s website:
Brian has spent his life shooting photos, and has developed a love for the art. Starting at the age of 6 years old in his aunts darkroom he started learning to process black and white film and prints. During this time he was using an oatmeal container as a pinhole camera, and then a 110 camera to photograph professional sporting events from his father’s season ticket seats in Denver, CO.
His first professional work was as a staff photographer with Highlander Publications shooting local prep sporting events at the age of 16 years old. He then began shooting music photography in Hollywood, CA. shooting freelance photography for Screamer Magazine, and becoming the band photographer for Lit (Razzle at the time).
He attended Chaffey College to fine tune his technical skills. During college his Fine Art Photography was selected for exhibition in the Los Angeles County Fair.
Advertising photography, weddings, and portraits started to become full-time, but the desire to shoot travel and landscape photography moved Brian to Utah where he started photographing National Parks around the country.
The Spanish Village Art Center in Balboa Park, San Diego, CA, became home to his first photography studio. His work was on display for three years in the Village.
Brian is currently shooting freelance photography. Some of his clients are: NBC San Diego, The San Diego Business Journal, Dining Out Magazine, and professional sports athletes in San Diego.
“I love taking photographs, and hope that the images created bring joy and good memories to those who view them.” – Brian
