About Me

My name is Brian. I am an experienced photographer mainly interested in fine art images, especially of people. My main interest at MM is connecting with models for fine art nude and portrait work. I live in New Zealand but visit the US often.

I try to make every shoot a real collaboration with my model. Great images can only be made with both our creative energies! I admire and have great respect for the models I work with, and think that is reflected in our interaction and ultimately in the images we make.

See my work at and

I was invited to and attended the ARTnudes Network Annual Retreats (Zoe Fest) in 2012 2013, 2017, 2018, and will attend later in 2022.

I was moved to choose the name "Aspiring Imagery" after reading Monuments & Maidens: the Allegory of the Female Form, by Marina Warner, who gave a reason why allegorical figures are so often nude: "we cast our aspirations in images that transcend the limits of what we know and live"

"Brian shot me on location at the Zorthian Ranch in Los Angeles, CA on a chilly/rainy morning/afternoon shoot. He thoughtfully had heaters running and gave me multiple breaks to warm up as we shot half indoors and half outside. With the multiple locations we incorporated both our ideas in the collaboration of photographs. Brian was easy to work with and open to creative inspiration in the moment. The photographs were beautifully composed, with warm moody lighting styled like a photograph from a movie set. I would recommend Brian to others and look forward to our next shoot!" Read less

"I had a ball collaborating with Brian. I worked with him both in November last year and recently, near his hometown in New Zealand. He is a great person and has wonderful ideas. We were able to incorporate both the ideas he wanted to shoot as well as some in-the-moment creative bursts into shooting and so far I've seen some striking and unique results from working with him. I look forward to future collaboration with Brian and recommend him to others." Read less

"It was great to work together 2 times in my visit to NZ. Our first shoot was inside and the 2nd was outside. He spoke to me about life class modeling which I hadn't thought about much before but so glad he sparked some inspiration in me to follow that path of modeling as well as photographic work. Would be great to work together again in future. Thinking of coming back soon! :) Kind regards :D" Read less

"It was an honour to work with Aspiring Imagery. A talented, interesting gentleman. We worked on a project that was both interesting to me and him and then we went on to explore and shoot more of the desert. I had a great time and look forward to the day we meet again." Read less
