Photographer Brian Hoven

I have been infatuated with photography for as long as I can remember.


There is something about the ability to freeze time that has always intrigued me.  I don’t have one style or focus on one type of photography – I love to shoot anything and everything.  Though my two daughters are my favorite subjects.

While I started shooting photos when I was a kid, I didn’t start to get ‘serious’ about it until after college.  I enrolled in a program in San Francisco learning on a basic Canon Rebel (film camera) where I learned the basic operations, darkroom techniques, and built the foundation to continue to grow.

I am now based in Portland, OR which provides endless opportunities for photographs.  I work with a full frame Nikon D610 and only a handful of lenses:  Nikon 70-200mm, Nikon 50mm, Tamrom 24-70mm.  I use Lightroom and Photoshop as my editing tools.
