Behind The Lens With Moses Brown

Atlanta-based photographer Moses Brown understands that photography isn’t about boundaries and should never limit you. Moses also understands that experience matters!

Moses says, “I’m an authentic photographer who found my passion by a challenge. I entered college as a graphic design major and was challenged by my professor to choose a different medium for my work. Initially, I told him I would use charcoal, he told me “ No, something unexpected… try photography.” Stunned, but up for the challenge I picked up a camera and began photographing. I fell in love with the art form.”
