About Brian Tallman
Brian Tallman is a photographer based in Stavanger Norway who grew up in a small town in Iowa in the United States. Finding a love for photography from early on and receiving his first Kodamatic Instamatic 100 film camera at about 10 years old. Having progressed from those simple, wonderful cameras to film DSLRs to now digital has been an amazing journey for Brian. But, taking a really good picture still relies on who´s behind the camera.
While living in Iowa Brian met an amzing and wonderful Norwegian who turned his entire life upside down (in a good way). They married and moved to Norway in 2001. In the past few years Brian has increased his emphasis on photography. Recently taking on Freelance work and working on portfolio work as well.
As far as photographic style, Brian tries to emphasize and incorporate colors and pictures with punch. Night photography and long exposure photography is becoming a specialty for Brian. Being able to control the situation and the lighting more with flashes and light painting is making photography more interesting and exciting for this photographer. Brian shoots primarily with Full Frame Nikon gear.
In a world of Selfie-Sticks, Instagram, and everyone having a camera on their phone, good photography is more important than ever. It is a craft, planning for a moment captured in time that will move and influence people. Not just point, click and post.
