Russell Brown

I am a professional press photographer working at News Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, plus a digital artist outside of my day-to-day work.

My life has been devoted to photography, taking an interest from a very young age and then working in the news media since 1982.

Over the past few years, I have become proficient in all aspects of digital photography and greatly enjoy using modern imaging methods to produce striking and original works.

In 2012, I was chosen to be one of the nine Beta-readers for Dan Margulis’ new book “Modern Photoshop Color Workflow” and it was during this project that the idea formed to write a book of my own.

I realised that the many years of experience I had accumulated could be helpful to others and that the sort of techniques I use for my work were under represented both in current books and online.

After a great deal of time, effort and expense, the idea finally came to fruition early last year, in the form of “Paths to Artistic Imaging in Photoshop.”

The book has been well received from the start, with my namesake, the Principal Creative Director at Adobe Systems being very enthusiastic and providing a very encouraging quote for the cover.
