Brandon J. Brown

Photographer, people lover, metaphor addict, recovering Bible nerd, Enneagram 7 and a half.
Photography Work / / Community Project



I am the emergent property of 37 billions cells - that makes me pretty amazing when you think about it (don’t worry - you’re amazing too).  You can typically find me around Milwaukee with Emily and our three beautiful and brilliant children. We all have an origin story: I was a youth pastor at a variety churches for a long time and now I take photos and explore what the next evolution of religion in America might look like.

Additionally, I am quite curious, a learner and thinker, a communicator, a party convener, a pop culture curator, an advocate for millennials, and a deep believer in underdogs.
