About

Kean BrownKean Brown ARPS ABPE

Hello, my  name is Kean Brown, the owner of Kean Brown Photography. I was first introduced to photography over thirty years ago in the mid eighties but it was in the early nineties when I started to take photography really seriously when I went to college in Blackpool to study the subject. I went on to gain City & Guilds qualifications, at distinction level, in five different areas of photography. Two of these areas were in processing; Black & White and Colour Printing. I very soon set up my own dark room and became a competent printer, printing all of my own photographs and also other peoples too. Photography has changed a lot since those days since the dawn of the digital age and it is the post processing that has seen the biggest change. The old dark room has now long gone and been replaced with the computer and editing software such as Photoshop. Having a strong interest in both the camera side and also the processing side, I went to night school for over two years to study Digital Imaging (learning how to use and get the best from Photoshop), achieving Advanced Level Certificates. I still continue to learn on a daily basis from books, tutorials, courses and people etc. in order to stay in tune with the very latest methods and techniques as all areas of  photography progress with such great speed.
I am also a member of my local long established Poulton Photographic Society. I  regularly enter my work into both local and national competitions in order to better myself and raise my profile. This has proved to be very successful for  me having had my work win awards on many occasions.

My  modern home based studio has the very best in quality Canon camera equipment and  Bowens studio lighting. It is the ideal setting for anyone to feel relaxed in which, in turn, produces good natural quality photographs.
I have been a member of Royal Photographic Society for several years. Founded in 1853, it is the most prestigious international photographic society and has long been recognised for the promotion and maintenance of high photographic  standards around the world. My work has been recognised by the RPS and subsequently I have been awarded the distinction of an Associateship of The Royal Photographic Society (ARPS). I also currently hold the ABPE Award (Associate Level) with the British Photographic Exhibitions (BPE) having achieved over 500 National Acceptances. These Accepted images include Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals, Certificates, Ribbons, Judges Awards, Commended and Highly Commended Awards. I was also a member of Wigan 10 Foto Club (one of the most successful national and international photographic societies) for just under three years. My passion for photography continues to grow each day and I consider it a pleasure to continue to learn about the subject.
