Simon Brown

Simon Brown
My name is Simon Brown. I was born in the early 1960's in the usual way... my parents found me under a Nasturtium leaf in the hardest winter in living memory. I started walking, climbing and using a camera before I started school. I then entered the English state school system with its associated food and insistence on organised team sport. On my release I began shooting company reports, spending time on the dole, continuing to climb and ski, and generally enjoying the 1980's. Like the 1960's, if you can remember them you probably weren't there.

In my early 30's I spent four wonderful years at The University of Sheffield. I emerged with a Zoology degree, a one year old daughter and a renewed zest for life. Following a period of mental illness I began to study NLP. In 2005 I was certified as a master practitioner. I now fill my time making fine landscape and documentary images, running my picture library, teaching photography, making fine monochrome prints, providing NLP based life coaching, therapy and training, cooking, climbing, riding bikes and, best of all, being a husband and father.

I also assiduously avoid organised team sports of all types. As I continue to wake up in the mornings I assume I am still not dead yet; long may this state continue. I wish you all health and joy.
