About Adrian Brown


As a highly experienced advertising photographer with a career spanning over 30 years, I have honed my skills in capturing stunning and effective imagery for many established magazines, design and advertising agencies.
In addition to my professional experience, I am also passionate about the Environment and have a deep appreciation for the beauty and complexity of the natural world. My time spent serving in the Royal Marines has given me discipline and the ability to adapt to new challenges, skills that have proved valuable in my career as a photographer.
In 2012, I was invited to join the team on the Marine & Natural History Photography degree course at Falmouth University as a Senior Lecturer. This has given me the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with the next generation of natural history photographers and help them develop their skills and careers in the industry.
