About Bryan

Claire, Riley, & Bryan

Hello.  I am Bryan Riley Turner. I love Jesus, my wife, my daughter, creativity, music, & wild things.  I also have a penchant for interesting quotes.

Things I do:

Graphic Design

Print, web, logos & vector graphics, t-shirts, stickers, & other merch.

I know my way around the Adobe Suite, with special emphasis on Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, & InDesign.

Photography

Family & individual portraits. Candid coverage of events. Landscape and natural things.

Here's my thing about photography: Photographs can take on a life of their own.  I've always been intrigued in the idea of telling a story through the lens instead of just preserving an instant in time.  Images rarely stop at just displaying the momentary thoughts and emotions of the captured subjects.  They become a vehicle for whatever underlying subtext the artist has sniffed out and drawn forward, and of course, you, the viewer-participant, play an active role by your own particular experiences and worldview that influence perception.

Quotes

I'm constantly collecting quotes from all manner of sources, and I've decided to start sharing them here. The two main lists I focus on are WILDERNESS & SPIRITUAL, but every once in a while something that doesn't fit into those strikes me and I make a note.

Conversation

I love connecting with people over intelligent, open-minded conversation, especially if they aren't exactly like me. Let me know what you think.

Thanks, friends.
