My Bio, Brian Cramer Red Carpet Photography

On one of the last days of 1996 Brian Cramer picked up his first digital camera at a local Best Buy. The camera was fairly large, very slow and used floppy disks for film, but he was hooked.
Brian came to work with an event production company connected with the PGA Tour after a few years of living in phoenix I made several connections with several large events in town such as the phoenix open Barrett Jackson and the insight bowl I have covered numerous pga tour, lpga tour, collage bowl games, fashion shows, the super bowl and Celebrity fight night.
For the past 10 years, Brian has fully devoted his attention and skills towards the art of photography. Brian uncanny, “second nature” sense of composition and understanding of light, delivers technically great photos. But it’s his unique understanding and real-world experiences together with “heart and soul” devotion to his work that takes this visual medium to the level of true art that many photographers aspire to but seldom achieve.
Covering golf and collage football bowl games as a photographer it makes you think quickly on his feet, to adapt to changing light and angles, and to be comfortable sitting in the hot sun, the pouring rain, or on the red carpet. Covering fashion shows, believe it or not, presents similar challenges especially when attempting a more subtle, less in your face, photojournalistic approach.
It is possible to run into Brian without a camera. He is an avid golfer, enjoys billiards and sand volleyball Texas Holden and spends much too much money expanding his own private golf memobilia collection.
Brian’s photos have been published on numerous websites and in publications including

FBR Open, Coors Birds Nest @ TPC Scottsdale AZ

About the FBR Open January 26 - February 1 2009

Annually sporting the largest crowds on the PGA TOUR, the FBR Open has gained legendary status on TOUR for being unlike any other golf tournament. Yes, the Phoenix TOUR stop is different from all the rest, but what makes it so? It starts with the unbelievable golf played by the likes of JB Holmes, Aaron Baddeley, Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh on the beautiful TPC Scottsdale and ends with the biggest galleries on TOUR. In between the golf and the galleries are The Thunderbirds. Hosts of the Open since 1939, this fine group of Valley business men has turned an ordinary "golf tournament" into a community event/happening -- commonly referred to as "The Greatest Show on Grass" -- and along the way have raised close to $53 million for Arizona charities.
The 2009 edition will mark the 74th playing of the Open, and the sixth as the FBR Open, making it one of the five oldest events on the PGA TOUR.
If you are thinking about attending the 2009 FBR Open, there are a few things you should know. First, parking is never a problem. A number of large lots are located in proximity to all the action and patrons have the choice of walking to the event or being shuttled practically to the front door. Second, ticket access is simple. Due to the design of the FBR Open course and grounds, an unlimited number of people can witness great golf action. Thus, tickets are never sold out. Finally, there’s the TPC Scottsdaleitself, one of the finest venues on the PGA TOUR for players and fans alike. They don’t call it the “Stadium Course” for nothing. There’s room aplenty to watch the key shots on all of the critical holes. Crucial are the final four holes, which offer classic risk/reward options for the game’s top pros.
