Christmas in Venice Beach… Only 3 weeks to go! Image by JB Brookman Photography

Our sister was in town, from Washington State- so, we were excited to make a rainy-day trip to the Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach…

The weather ended up being gorgeous!  Beautiful grey clouds, filled the sky with diffused light and only light sprinkles flavored the day.  My wife, sister and I had a blast, on the Pier- before we headed down to Venice.

I had just finished the art for a Family Portrait Session, so, it was great to have a day of fun and rest.  I try to always bring my camera gear, wherever I go.  It is my passion to capture moments of emotion or scenes, which provoke people to feel.  Taking into account that it was the first week of December, I secretly hoped to find something having to do with Christmas.  (My wife and I are staying in SoCal, this year- after 6 or 7 straight years of traveling to Washington and Montana)  When we hit Venice Beach’s famous graffiti wall, this image jumped out…  A collision of art and nature, that could only occur, in this location.

I will try and share more photos from the day, later this week…  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! -JB



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.”
