Yes, my real, actual, god-given birth name is App. Brittany Anne App, to be exact... I know, it's kinda crazy.
I am a professional photographer & a self-proclaimed vagabond. I live creatively & abundantly on very little, and I share that life, with you, through the unique story-telling capacity of my relationship with camera. In no other way can I imagine being able to invite you so deep within the labyrinth of my mind.
I thrive on this intimacy. It is what fuels my life's work. I want to tell our collective story, the story of being human. I honestly believe that the more we can know & understand each other, the more swiftly we can connect. And that connection, my friends? THAT is what it's all about.
People ask me what kind of photography I do. And consistently, even after 11 years in business, I stumble over how to respond. Sooooo, "People!" I say. I photograph people... our stories, our heart aches, our weddings, our businesses, our children, our lives, our loves. Graduations, portraits, festivals, live music, freaks, and geeks, and fetishy folks. I photograph all of it. Wine festivals, Tattoo festivals, art shows, concerts, Burning Man, Glastonbury, The California Mid State Fair, rodeos, travel, Semester at Sea... the list goes on.
My business, App's Photography, is based in beautiful San Luis Obispo, California. The Central Coast raised me well, and continues to hold me tightly. But those who know me will attest to the fact that I rarely stop moving. I travel locally, throughout California, nationally, and internationally for work. I have photographed in over 27 countries, sailed around the world twice, ridden a bicycle across the United States of America, shaved my head, fractured a rib, chased a monkey, hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and out again, received awards for my images, fallen in love, summited mountains, backpacked through Italy, been spanked in London, run out of water in the Namibian desert,, laughed, cried, lived. My life, my work, my art, my story, my eyes - I share it all, with you....
"Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." - Harold Thurman Whitman
And WHY do I do what I do? 'Tis the ever-important question. Because I genuinely want to share... everything... our stories, our lives, so that we may all open to a more connected world, a world in which we constantly strive to care bigger, to live more gently, and to encourage togetherness and love.
Let's share YOUR story....
