Brooks Brann has been an avid photographer for 40 years concentrating on landscapes and wildlife images. He is a native of Knoxville with a BS in Industrial Engineering and a MS in Mathematics from the University of Tennessee. Brann spent 34 years in Seattle where he worked for Boeing as a Senior Engineer. During that time, he explored many of the national parks, national monuments and Western wildlife refuges. From 1988 – 2010, he conducted more than 20 solo long distance river trips in Northern British Columbia and the Canadian Northwest Territories. After retiring in 1999, Brann divided his time between New Zealand and a cabin in the Northwest Territories where he pursued his interest in photography and trout fishing. In 2012, he moved back to Knoxville where he continues to concentrate on photography.
“A lot of research and planning goes into a trip, and typically several places are selected to visit,” says Brann. “If everything works out then I will return multiple times. Some of my favorite places for photography include Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, the coastal areas of Olympic National Park, the Yukon’s Dempster highway above the Arctic Circle (in Canada), the lava flows and coastal regions of the Island of Hawaii, and the Appalachians of East Tennessee.”
