Bryan Friend is a natural light Professional Photographer located in Hollister, California. Specializing in landscape, seascape, sunrise, sunset, wildlife, nature, macro images in black & white and color.
Bryan has been photographing the beautiful California Central Coast and Central Valley for over 20 years. Capturing the unique beauty of Northern California.
He has numerous awards in County Fairs, and contests for his images. His images have been published in vacation publications as well as Santa Cruz Waves.
Bryan’s passion for photography started back in Junior High School as a photographer for his school newspaper and yearbook.
I became interested in becoming a Professional Photographer in Junior High School when I was asked if I would join the yearbook and school newspaper staff as a photographer to shoot activities and events. That was many years ago.
Since then I have become more interested in photographing nature, wildlife, scenic landscapes, sunrise, sunsets and macro images in both color and black & white.
After a brief military tour, I decided to enter my images in County Fairs and other competitions. I have received multiple ribbons and awards for many of my images.
Recently, after a life changing event, I decided to publish and sell my images to those that may want to enjoy them as well. And now in 2016, here we are with my site “Friendly Images Photography.com.” This was a name I chose about ten years ago and is a reality today.
Most of what I know and do is self-taught over many years. And I am still learning more every day. Hope you enjoy my images and tell others about my site. Comments are always welcome. Thanks for stopping by.
