Every now and again I come across a photo that just draws me in. I see beyond the figures or the scenery and become part of the story that was captured on film. Photographic images have this special “magic” power that allow us to see the world and its people from someone else’s perspective. However, it takes a very talented photographer to unleash this magic. Brian Metz is one of those magicians.
Born and raised in Chicago and now splitting his time between Cleveland and Scottsdale, Brian’s images are awe inspiring and gallery worthy. You can see the love he has for his art in each and every photograph he takes. His love also carries through in the dollars he raises for local and national charities, using his photos as a medium for advocacy and fundraising. A portion of all proceeds are donated to one of the following charities: Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD), Head2Toe (Autism), or Susan G. Komen For The Cure. In addition, Brian has also worked with client specified charities on their behalf.
Brian was generous enough to create a one-of-a-kind commissioned piece for The Heart’s Delight (seen above), which I am so excited to giveaway to one lucky reader! Titled, “Le Coeur Doué,” or “The Gifted Heart” in French, Brian shot this image on the frozen shores of Lake Erie mid-Polar Vortex freeze. Beauty really does lie all around us. Sometimes it just takes a talented photographer/magician to help us see it!
So click on the link below for entry, cross your fingers and hold on tight to your lucky charm. Perhaps, a little bit of Brian’s magic will appear on your doorstep.
