Hailing from the tiny town of Cowra, in Central West NSW, Australia Brent Young was taught photography fundamentals by his father and connected with various mentors from all walks of photography along the way from Wedding and Fashion photographers to Wildlife, Landscape and School Photograhers. With over 15 years of photography experience Brent has been able to shoot Weddings and commercial work all over Australia and shoot many of Australia’s Premier Musicians and International Sporting Athletes. He considers himself a portrait and commercial photographer but he has never turned away from a challenge which has enabled him to be published in multiple Australian and international publications.
The obstacle is the way.
So just who the hell is Brent Young?
Hi if you haven’t put 2 and 2 together yet, I’m Brent Young and there’s not much to say and if you’re reading this you probably don’t have much to do so you thought who the hell is this geezer anyway and how did he get so handsome? Photoshop is the answer to the latter but I’ll try to keep you occupied with the former for as long as I can and you can claim it as “research” or “study” to get you out of what you’re meant to be doing right now.
I’m a Young photographer (pun completely intended and the worst joke I’ll have forever, sorry not sorry) hailing from country NSW in the little Central West town of Cowra…never heard of it? What about Bathurst? Keep going west and you’ll find us; yes believe it or not there are places out that way.
Anyway, I’ve been taking photos for over 15 years now and have taken an embarrassing amount of bad self portraits in that time but I’ve also been fortunate enough to be trusted by and photograph some of Australia’s premier music talent like Jack Jones (Southern Sons, John Farnham), Vanessa Amorosi, Illy, Michael Paynter (Icehouse, The Veronicas), Katie Noonan, Michael Dolce (Delta Goodrum, Jessica Mauboy, The Voice), Samuel Vincent (Jon Stevens, Guy Sebastian) as well as some International and Olympic sporting champions like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu extrodinar Kurt Osiander & Australian Judo Olympian Matt D’Aquino to name a couple…..had my ass kicked by them too and loved every minute of it.
Why should I even consider hiring you?
Alright let’s get real for a moment, you’re really reading this because you are considering hiring me. So let me tell you this, I once saw a quote that read “Tell me photos don’t matter when that’s all you have left” Now that’s pretty heavy I know and I don’t agree that without photos our memories seize to exist but it did get me thinking about just how much they can help access those memories; like a key to a treasure chest.
*insert 80’s power ballad*
I guess what I’m trying to say amidst my sappy dribble is that if you hire me I will emotionally invest myself into creating beautiful & timeless pictures for you. I take great pride in my work and the satisfaction of my clients is paramount.
Join good company and trust in me
