BRIAN GABERMAN

PHOTOGRAPHER

Raised on the east coast, Brian moved to northern California immediately after graduating high school to follow his dream of being forever involved with skateboarding. Now, an international photographer based in Northern California, Brian has spent the last 14 years traveling the world with camera, producing numerous ad campaigns and editorial pieces for every major skateboard publication. Brian got his start as staff photographer for SLAP magazine and continued on to work for many years as Senior Photographer of Skateboarder Magazine. Always paralleling his skateboard work, Brian has put a lot of time into developing a unique personal style, and showing his fine art photography, which leans toward familial and other very personal subject matter. He was the youngest photographer to ever be featured in fine art publication, B&W Magazine. In the past five years, Brian has grown increasingly interested in the quality of food he provides for his family, as well as the manner in which it’s grown. He purchased a small farm property in Sebastopol, California, where he tends large gardens that grow the majority of his family’s produce, raises chickens and ducks for eggs and meat, and is constantly working on transforming the property into a self-sustaining, permaculture landscape. Odds are, if he doesn’t have a camera in his hands, you can be sure they’re covered in dirt.
