It's an odd thing being faced with publishing an "about" page. It's supposed to sound like it's written by my agent, but I don't have an agent. However, if I did have an agent, s/he might say:

Brian Powell is a pretty lucky guy.  He gets incredible support, inspiration and love from his amazing family, friends, and communities.  He feels fortunate to pursue photography for no other reason than it brings him joy and a deeper connection to people and the natural world. He intends his photographs convey an appreciation for being alive.

And because appreciation pays many (but not all) bills, he is also available for hire in and around (and sometime far away from) Tucson, Arizona.
