“Abandoned” , by Photographic Artist JB Brookman.

I had been meaning to capture this abandoned flour mill, for about the past 4 years.  It sits at the edge of a back road, entering Ronan, Montana.  This is a fascinating piece of history and architecture, as it looks as if it came right off of a Hollywood TV set.  It seems that just the “right amount” of windows are broken out and the aged logo is almost unreadable.  When I stand in front of it, I imagine what it must have been like- 50 years ago, when it was a bustling property, churning out flour by the ton…

If you look closely, there is a perfect Montana big sky sunset, in the back left corner of the image.  I contemplated keeping this image in color, but, the black and white accentuated the historical punch of the property.  I will definitely finish one in color, in the future.  Taken with a Nikon D4 body with a 14-24 wide angle lens and a Manfroto tripod

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.”
