About

Hello, my  name is Kean Brown, the owner of Kean Brown Photography. I was first introduced to photography over twenty five years ago in the mid eighties. 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 very competent printer, printing all of my own photographs and also other peoples. 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 is now long gone and has 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 and, in order to not get left behind, 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 great speed.

My modern home based studio has the very latest in quality Canon & Fujifilm 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 the 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 becoming an Associateship of The Royal Photographic Society (ARPS). I am also an Associateship of the British Photographic Exhibitions (ABPE), having achieved more than 400 national acceptances for my images. These accepted images include awards such as Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals, Certificates, Ribbons, Judges Awards, Commended and Highly Commended Awards.

I am also a member of the Wigan 10 Foto Club and Poulton-Le-Fylde Photographic Society. I  regularly enter my work into both local and national competitions in order to  better myself and raise my profile. My passion for photography  continues to grow each day and I consider it a pleasure to continue to learn about the subject.
