Steve Brigman began his career on the photography staff of Texas Instruments, and after eight years joined the research division of ARCO Oil & Gas. Going out on his own in the mid-80s, he specialized in fashion, supporting the Dallas industry for almost a decade. Steve’s second love is writing, and he went back to school in his late 30s to add a journalism degree to his resume and spent several years in the newsroom before going freelance, where he could combine his photography and writing. He now lives in the Missouri Ozarks with his childhood sweetheart, Kathy, and Maggie the yellow lab who really runs the show at the Brigman household. Nature is a family passion, and the Brigman’s can often be found out roaming the Ozark hills and streams searching for that next image.
