Photographic Craftsman / Certified Professional Photographer - www.brogen.com
Introduction

Randy Brogen is a published, international award-winning, Photographic Craftsman, Certified Professional Photographer (CPP), only one of 43 in the state of Massachusetts, who thrives on capturing special moments for his clients that are often times fleeting and then truly enjoys watching their reactions when they see the final results. Randy has always had a passion for creating images as seen in the various murals he drew for local game rooms as a teenager. He enhanced his creativity and technical skills during his career in the US Army where he used cutting edge technologies to develop new ideas. This led to a 25+ year, all-encompassing technology career in the private sector. Randy finally took the leap into photography about 10 years ago during the “digital revolution” since his technology background made a perfect fit with the more technology driven processes, techniques and equipment in the photography arena.

 Randy specializes in not specializing.  He is driven by his inner desire to create the absolute best results for his clients regardless of whether it is in Portrait, Architectural, Commercial or Sports Photography.  Randy is motivated by his desire to constantly explore and learn something new, he will photograph any subject that is interesting and piques his curiosity. As a result, he has been awarded several state, regional and international awards in print competitions since 2009. Most recently, Randy's work was accepted into the Professional Photographers of America's (PPA) prestigious "Loan Collection" during the 2013 International Print Competition.  His work was also recognized by various panels of Master Photographers and was awarded the Kodak Gallery Portrait Award in 2012 for the highest scoring portrait print, as well as the Court of Honor award in 2011 for the highest scoring Illustrative/Conceptual print in the Professional Photographers Association of Massachusetts (PPAM) Print Competition. He also achieved the fourth highest overall scoring print and one of the top 20 scoring cases at the PPA 2012 Northeast District Competition. In addition, his prints have been included in the PPA General Collection and placed on display at different venues throughout the year.

Several of Randy’s images can be seen in books such as “The Best of World: Photography”, Volume I, “The Best of America: Photography”, Volume II, the “PlusOne Collection”, and “Changing Planet, Changing Health”; newspapers such as The Boston Globe, The Burlington Union and The Concord Journal, magazines like Boston and Boston Common, and online publications such as National Lacrosse League Insider, Boston.com, Wicked Local and The Patch. In addition, many of his images have been featured on the Fox25 and Channel 5 news…most memorably one of his Boston skyline images was used as the backdrop during the summer of 2011 for all Channel 5 Weather reports. Randy was also honored by The New England Aquarium in the fall of 2010 when they created an exclusive gallery of his marine life images, and then again in the summer of 2011 with the cover shot for their member journal, “blue”.

Randy is the President of the Professional Photographers Association of Massachusetts (PPAM), an affiliate of the Professional Photographers of America as well as a member of the Board of Directors for the Professional Photographers Association of New England (PPANE). He is also a member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals.  Randy has served on the Professional Photographic Certification Commission for the last three years as a liaison with the responsibility of helping other photographers earn their certification. This past June, Randy was voted by his peers to a 3-year term as one of the Massachusetts Counselors to the PPA National Council.

Since Randy has the innate desire to learn and be the best he possibly can be at his craft he continues his education through seminars and conventions developed specifically for professional photographers…more than half way to his next achievement of “Master Photographer”. He also spends countless hours reading various journals, books, etc and practicing current techniques and styles, as well as new ideas and compositions.

He looks forward to “work” every day, and loves that his photography provides a portal for those who cross his path to get a glimpse of how he sees the world.
