"I’m an insatiably curious explorer trying to understand the world outside my comfort zone. I’ve discovered a tool that imparts me with the magical powers of connection to others and opens doors into other cultures. My tool is my camera."
A seasoned collaborator and worldwide traveller, Brian Hodges is a travel and editorial photographer known for capturing authentic moments and images with a powerful connection to place. Brian believes that great photography is not just about captivating images, but creating images with lasting emotional impact. In love with travel and the lure of the road, he has followed the winds of adventure around the globe and across 60 countries. He speaks English, French, and Spanish fluently.
Before picking up a camera, Brian focused his creative energy on designing satellite telecommunications systems. He spent a decade living and working as a software engineer in Paris where, among other projects, he played a key role engineering the XM/Sirius radio prototype system. His award-winning work is featured in such distinguished publications as Conde Nast Traveler, New York Times Style Magazine, Marie Claire, Photo District News, National Geographic Traveler, GEO Magazine, and many others. He regularly contributes his photographic talent to charitable organizations worldwide, leveraging the power of imagery to increase awareness for their causes. Hodges calls Australia and California home, but never gathers dust at either – when not taking pictures, you’ll likely find him surfing, mountain biking, or practicing yoga.
Hodges is an Accredited Professional Photographer with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography.
