Check out Brin Deuk Morris’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brin Deuk Morris.

Brin Deuk, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I decided I wanted to be a photographer while taking a college class. I immediately started working at a small mom and pop camera shop in Orange County where I learned about all kinds of old film cameras. My plan was to move to LA and attend the art center.

I ended up getting a job at a pro film lab where I learned about all different films and processing techniques. Many legendary photographers came into this lab and I was lucky enough to meet and start working with two legendary architectural photographers, Julius Shulman and Juergen Nogai. They taught me about light and how to use it. Even though I do dabble in architecture photography my real passion is the open road.

I’ve tried to marry my love for photography with my passion for the outdoors by documenting my motorcycle road trips and have been lucky enough to have some great clients who embrace my style.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
My photography sometimes dips into many different genres but I try to have an underlying feeling across all images. My goal is to put the viewer into the image as though they are experiencing that moment first hand. I want them to feel the atmosphere, and smell the air, sometimes using grain and contrast to achieve it.

The sterotype of a starving artist scares away many potentially talented artists from pursuing art – any advice or thoughts about how to deal with the financial concerns an aspiring artist might be concerned about?
That’s always the catch. A bigger problem, I think, is that most creatives sometimes lack the business sense to get going. I know this is true for me. I’ve been doing this for about 13 years now and I’m just barely getting into a place where I want to be. Just don’t sell out on yourself and things will work out.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
Unfortunately, most of my work can only be viewed digitally at brinmorris.com or on Instagram, but an image doesn’t really come to life until it becomes a print.

All my images are available for large format printing. Please visit my website or IG and let me know if I can make any prints for you.
