Hi there.

My photo
Jill Brown has over 15 years of experience in the field of photography. She has studied photography at Missouri State University and Maryville University, St. Louis. She spent time working on her personal fine art work for many years and in 2003 started her first wedding and portrait photography business in St. Louis, MO. Jill moved to Des Moines, IA in 2005 and has continued her wedding and portrait business along with her fine art photography. Jill currently has work displayed in and around the Des Moines area as well as work in personal collections around the world. Jill uses both medium format film cameras and digital formats to create her images. This is how the artist describes her work: “My work is a reflection of everyday life and places. I chose the medium of photography as a tool to capture the essence of the person or place. I create images to depict the subject as they are remembered in the mind. Not posed or unnatural, but as a window into the intimate world of the subject.” Jill Brown is a member of Professional Photographers of America.

Paper Star Studio

I belong to a photo studio called Paper Star Studio which is located in downtown Des Moines at The Fitch Building.  I feel pretty lucky to have space here.  The building is full of all kinds of artists: from painters to printmakers, glassblowers to mixed-media.  It is a wonderful place to be.  Last night my studio-mate, Derek Tingstrom, and I did a little impromptu, just for fun shoot with a girl he uses often for a model and her friend.  It was a great time!
