20 mile stretch!   Lightning in North Salt Lake  striking near SLC international airport

Hi, I'm Brad.

I've been shooting professionally for 21  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 and our giant dog Pepper. 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. My specialties include: portraits, weddings, commercial documentation, extreme nature and landscapes, cityscapes and wildlife, marketing/ advertising,  adventure/ action, modelling portfolios,  and college sports where I am credentialed and licensed  for NCAA football and basketball media.  

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
