Kris and Bob Brown

Kris and Bob are a husband-and-wife team and their photography venture, 2 Browns Photography, combines their love of the outdoors with their love of photography. Members of Flat River Gallery & Framing, their work has appeared in ArtPrize, Festival of the Arts, the Pure Michigan campaign and many others.

"Most of our pieces capture scenes and elements of the Michigan landscape that inspire us. We hope that our images convey the beauty, spirit, and excitement that we experienced."
