Hi, I'm Brad.
I've been shooting professionally for 18 years. I'm a very passionate artist, photographer, and business entrepreneur.
I love the great outdoors and spend as much time as possible climbing, hiking, skiing, mtn. biking and exploring. I live in Northern Utah with my awesome family, the Peterson 5! Through the years my work has taken me all over this world to photograph portrait events and scenic landscape adventures. I believe my strength as an artist is my ability to step into any situation and photograph it well. I specialize in portraits, weddings, commercial and advertising, modelling portfolios, licensed NCAA football and basketball, adventure and action, documentary and time-lapse video creation, landscapes and wildlife.
My two business mantras are:
"I don't photograph what I see...I see because I photograph!
"I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list."
I look forward to working with you and will guarantee a memorable experience with a crystal clear visual story of the things that matter in your life.

"There is a race of men that don't fit in, A race that can't sit still; So they break the hearts of kith and kin, and they roam the world at will. They range the field and rove the flood, And they climb the mountains crest; Their's is the curse of the gypsy blood, And they don't know how to rest." ~Robert W. Service
