The City of San Francisco, Taken From Behind A Sailor Statue. Photo: JB Brookman

I created this image of a sailor and his bags, gazing across the Bay to San Francisco.  It was a magical day, in the Bay Area and I knew the spot I wanted to get to, from previous trips there.  As I set up my tripod, the light seemed to suddenly open up (out of the fog) and cast a warm orange glow over the city.  Right place, right time and ready to make the image.  I used a little bit of post production to open up the shadows, on the statue.  This image ended up being one of my favorites from my “early days” of photography.  2010 JB Brookman Photography.


Franklin & Spring Hill Senior Portrait Photographer

Also Serving Brentwood, Leiper’s Fork and the Nashville Areas


“My name is JB Brookman. I’m a rock star concert photographer who grew up shooting the biggest stars in the world. The stages and venues of Hollywood and LA used to be my home, but now I have made a home in the suburbs of Nashville and Franklin, Tennessee. Shooting Taylor Swift, U2, Elton John and Ed Sheeran is great, but my true passion is creating highly stylized, authentic and modern portraits of High School Seniors, making them feel like they are at the center of the stage.”
