Born in Washington D.C., Adam Brett has always been fascinated by nature's vibrant watercolors. When Adam arrived in New York City in 1993, he was surprised to discover quiet calm of Central Park. Captivated with its serenity and mystical beauty, he sought to capture the images he saw with his camera...
"I remember it like it was yesterday, walking around the park for the first time with my point-and-shoot camera. There were many images that jumped out at me and needed to be recorded. There is a beauty there that often gets overlooked. It was like uncovering a precious jewel in the middle of Manhattan's bedrock."
Adam had found his muse. Translating the energy and excitement of his first study, a green tryst fenced by an awesome city skyline, Adam has learned the importance of careful balance and attention to style, which he has extended to his vast mural of diverse photographs.
Starting AB Photography in 2000, Adam has channeled his passion into a professional career. Specializing in landscape and sports photography, his diverse photographs now hang in corporate offices and private homes throughout the country.
His debut show, held at Merchants of Manhattan from September '2000 to March '2001, was a huge success. Organized into themes from water stars of the Pacific Ocean to captivating portraits of sports stars, each work captured a magical moment in time. Last January, Adam's work "Reflections" was featured at the Fifth Annual HearArt Emerging Artists Event where it won praise for it's peaceful portrayal of Central Park. Most recently, Adam donated a photograph taken of the New York Yankee, El Duke for a September 11th benefit. The photograph sold for $700. Over the past year, Adam has traveled to New Zealand and Australia to capture the magic and mystery of these storied lands. His photos also depict the wild, untamed coast of Ireland, the emerald vineyards of the Loire Valley, and the lush rainforests of South America.
More than a photographer, Adam is an artist. Without intruding the natural beauty of the landscape, he uses the camera as a paintbrush to create impressionistic portraits of place. With a unique vision of his chosen canvas, Adam brings life and light to his varied subjects sharing his discovery with his audience.
