I love my job. I meet great people, capture special moments of their lives, and watch children grow up get married. All of this right in front of my camera!
At age 13, I discovered that I had a passion for photography. Growing up in a small suburb of Chicago, I started providing team pictures for the local little league. After taking the photos, I would go home to my darkroom and make 8x10 black/white prints. Then I would ride my bicycle to the baseball field and sell the photos to the parents watching the game. In high school, I worked part-time for a newspaper, a couple photographers, an ad agency, and started creating portraits.
Then I moved to Santa Barbara California to attend Brooks Institute of Photography where I received my BA in Fine Arts/Photography. In 1982, I came to Shreveport to work for a photographer here.
In Shreveport, I met my wonderful wife Charlotte, and we soon married. We have a creative daughter, Mary Charlotte, who works with me.
In 1985, I opened my own business. Now, 26 years later, I continue to create images each and everyday with the same excitement as I had when I was 13. (www.brianlewis.com 318-861-8917)
