Moab PrintWorks is a partnership between two experienced photographers, David L. Brown and Mark Brown (no relation). Here are some details about us.
David L. Brown is an award-winning photographer who has had thousands of his pictures published for myriad purposes, from editorial to corporate uses ranging from newspapers and magazines to annual reports, calendars and even billboards. He is a life member of the American Society of Media Photographers and has worked for many years as a nature, landscape and travel photographer. When film was still king he used large format cameras including 4×5 and 5×7 inch view cameras, medium format systems, and special panoramic cameras as well as Leica, Nikon and Canon 35mm systems at various stages in his career. He has worked in more than 30 countries. Over the past two decades he has embraced the new digital world of photography and has owned several large format inkjet printers, including 24- and 44-inch Epson printers. He studied under Master Printmaker Jon Cone of Cone Editions at Jon’s studio in Vermont, as well as at the Santa Fe Workshops in New Mexico. He is a graduate of the top-ranked University of Missouri School of Journalism where he majored in magazine editorial and studied photojournalism. Prior to undertaking a second career as a photographer he worked in newspaper and magazine journalism and was a staff editor at a Fortune 20 corporation. For nearly two decades he owned and operated a corporate communications agency in Chicago. He presently leads photo tours and workshops in the Moab, UT area, where he was recently selected to serve as a member of the Board of Trustees of Canyonlands Field Institute, a non-profit dedicated to introducing students to nature through camping and rafting trips and other adventures.

Mark Brown grew up in Pennsylvania where he was a landscape, portrait and wedding photographer. Many of his nature photographs were printed and framed to decorate corporate offices, clinics and hospitals. He also made thousands of prints for his wedding business, shooting about 200 such events. In 2010 he moved to Moab, UT where he has concentrated on photographing nature and landscape subjects. He currently sells his fine art prints through Amazon.com under his NaturesOpus brand. Besides his still photography work, Mark is an expert videographer and has exceptional ability to bring out the most from digital image files. Unsatisfied with the ordinary computers available off the shelf, he has built his own computer with a 16 core processor and 128 GB of RAM, using a 50-inch 4K flat-screen TV as his monitor. His current personal work is made with dual Nikon 850 camera bodies, a Nikon 810 body and an extensive collection of lenses. He also uses a drone to capture the beauty of the Utah redrocks country from unusual angles, both as stills and in 4K video. His video editing services are also available for those of you who desire help with managing your footage.
