Photographer Brian Friedman started out as a road manager for the legendary jazz drummer Roy Haynes. But it was during Haynes’ 20-city tour, that Brian began photographing Roy and discovered his passion for image making that put him on a road to a new career. Since then, he has sharpened his skills and his eye to become recognized as a photographer of choice by noted entertainment personalities, politicians, corporate leaders, event planners and discerning individuals. His clients include NBC, Comedy Central, 20th Century Fox, Ray Romano, comedian Brian Regan, among many others. Brian’s images have appeared in The New York Times, The Wallstreet Journal, CNN.com, Playboy, The Economist, A&E Biography, Pollstar, as well on The Late Show with David Letterman, Entertainment Tonight, to name a few. In 2005, he was invited to photograph the final rehearsal and taping of CBS’s landmark sitcom “Everybody Loves Raymond.” Most recently, Brian has had the distinct honor of photographing Barack and Michelle Obama for the Obama for America campaign.
But beyond the glamorous world of celebrity, Brian Friedman brings glamour and his own unique style to a broader range of assignments that include upscale weddings, corporate events, individual and group portraits, and various other special events. To all of these assignments, Brian brings the same unparalleld level of imagination and creativity that has distinguished his vision and his work for more than a decade.
