Growing up in Carlton, MN Brad is the middle child of Pat and Dick Nygren. Early on, he was interested in photogaphy. He was involved in every photography related course offered in high school and also was the yearbook staff photographer.
Upon graduating from high school Brad entered Dakota County Technical College and received a 2 year degree in Photo Technology. He graduated at the top of his class and subsequently took a job in Nashua, New Hampshire developing and processing film. After one year he left that job to pursue a career in Portrait Photography "I felt that the technical aspect of photography was important to understand, but now it was time to let loose my creative side and create lasting images".
He then continued his education by attending the New England Institute of Professional Photography and also achieved a degree in Small Business Management from Hesser College.
Brads technique and style quickly gained him notoriety as his unique style was breathtaking, and easily recognizable as his. In 1995 Brad moved back to the Midwest and established himself in Osceola, WI.
Brad is an internationally known Professional photographer who has photographed everyone from Hollywood stars to the President of the United States. His creative and energetic style has won him numerous state and national awards.
Brad has always chosen to remain an independent photographer. His brand new studio is designed with the latest technology yet is comfortable and accommodating. "I love creating vibrant imagery for a commercial shoot or trying out the latest techniques with a high school senior. But I also like capturing the intense feeling and mood of a wedding couple and creating beautiful portraits that they can show their grandchildren some day or spending time with a family, creating a memorable portrait. I really have no preference. Every shoot is a unique challenge, with unique possibilities."
Although Brad is highly in demand, he is always open to new projects. No job is too big or too small. Call Brad today. You won't regret it. 715-294-5454
