We are a band of creative nerds delivering quality, professional imagery with the visionaries of today and mavericks of tomorrow.

The SQUAD

We’ve got heart and genuinely love working with likeminded professionals to create images and experiences that expand what is possible. We bring what feels like a century of combined background from hospitality and service, arts & technology, commercial photography, high-end retouching, education and civic leadership to play as two parts of Brian DeSimone Photography. 

Our creative + practical skill sets, expanding database of “dad jokes,” and zeal for working with bad ass people across the spectrum is what separates us from the pack.  That and our dope photography.
