Brian Sevald is a creative professional photographer residing in the Metro-Detroit area with several years photojournalism experience. My first point and shoot film camera got me hooked on image making from the age of 9. A few years later, I was gifted an old polaroid camera and was fascinated by the instant image making aspect of the device. With only 10 photos per cartridge, one had to be a little more conservative than I am used to now with digital. But it was still all about capturing what I saw, and telling a story with images. Photography became a hobby, and a daily activity. By the time I got my first digital camera I had started to develop a taste for photography.
In the early years I captured moments on family camping trips, vacations, and other out of the normal routine events. When I reached college, I decided to try my hand at shooting at a little bit higher level. I applied and received a staff photogapher position at the GVSU student run newspaper the Lanthorn. I shot for the paper throughout my college experience. My senior year, I was appointed Photo Editor. From then on photography has been my passion.
Most recently I have begun shooting for and assisting the official photographer for the Detroit Pistons, giving me a chance to see Pro sports photography at one of the highest levels. I am also currently acting as a photo assistant for a commercial photographer out of Ferndale, Mi.
