Brett is a fourth-generation journalist who cannot resist the medium of photography. Born and raised in a newspaper family where cameras were always within reach, he grew up documenting his hometown for the local paper.

Photojournalism is a passion of Brett's because it requires capturing the candid moments of life. Those candid moments are what Brett looks for when covering current events to portraits.

Nationally, he was awarded first place by the Canadian Community Newspapers Association in 2010 for best sports photo of the year. 

Brett hails from Provost, Alberta, but now calls Calgary home.
