About the Photographer...

Luminous Landscapes

“My photography is a box of chocolates that is full of variety image making. My sweet tooth really is long exposure photography. Using these techniques, I am able to create luminous landscapes that reveal a

peacefulness or chaos to a scene.”    -Brandon Hirt

"My statement? Enjoy life and and art around you. Sometimes art is making a pie or driving down an icy road. Art is everything we do and how we do it. My personal favorites are using a light capture device or cooking breakfast. Sometime you overexposure your eggs and sometimes you get lucky adding onions to your scene.

Create or Die......"

                            -Brandon Hirt

 These fine art images will last from 2 seconds to 2 hours. I create most of these during the power of moonlight which will help extend my exposures. From urban nightscapes to stars spinning around the Northern Star, most of my long exposures are created at night when the stars shine or when a car is flying by with its headlights shining. They say the spice of life is variety, so I keep that going with my camera. I am available to shoot weddings and portraits. From my Farmscape series that will mooove you to my Black and White Series and environmental portrait work, I am always looking to create images of everyday views from new perspectives."

​-Brandon Hirt

"Growing up spending time outdoors connected me with nature, and the desire to capture the beauty of it. That is when I started to pick up a camera, capturing the beautiful scenes of Pennsylvania. I then moved to Colorado and Oregon to live the dream of snowboarding for 10 years. During that time I really caught the bug of photography. After taking a few black and white classes I was hooked. Over the years, as my photography grew I wanted to capture memorable images that no one else was taking. This is when I started working with longer exposures in my photography to create unique perspectives and mood into my images.
