At the tender age of seven his parents gave him, as a birthday present, a plastic toy camera and darkroom developing kit so starting Brett's lifelong passion for photography.

After leaving school he got the break that put him on the path to achieving his ambition, a career as a photographer – he was offered an apprenticeship at principal newspaper, the Birmingham Post.

Brett graduated moving on to open his own portrait studio, and his love of art and architecture led him to further hone his craft in the field of commercial and industrial photography.

His desire to tell the story of a wedding, by capturing the everyday scenes within ‘the big day’, led him to his camera of ultimate choice – the Leica M: his signatory look.

He was commissioned to shoot Leica for Leica, photo-essays illustrating the unique look of lenses:
Leica Noctilux | Leica Summilux | Leica APO-Summicron | Leica Super-Elmar

As ambassador to Queensberry Albums, Brett has represented the company at UK trade shows, and his reportage wedding photography has featured in worldwide marketing.
