About Brian . . .
Brian has been photographing events, food, interiors, and portraits with fig media since 2006. He has a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Illinois Chicago, and a Master's in Photography at "fig University". Brian has been at the fore front of many new, fun, and creative photo endeavors with fig, and has helped form the fig photo documentary/editorial style of corporate photography. He has been great with calibrating with the photo and film team on an assortment of client's visual media projects.
Brian's creative story telling skills are underlined when covering an event. "I like to capture the people, the location, the awards, and the fun. So that when the client views their photos, they can relive the celebration." Brian has photographed food + drink, interiors, and products for restaurants, hotels, and international commercial brands.

"Brian Carey's work has come across my desk recently (the Jason Wu event w/ Saks at the Art Institute), and I have to say I was completely blown away. His images are the perfect example of the mix we're looking for: posed shots of guests, candids of them in conversation/mingling, close-ups of food/decor, and wider venue/atmosphere shots." – Modern Luxury Magazine
WOW—what an incredible display of photography you captured from Friday!!! STUNNING!! I am so impressed and want to hire you for EVERY SINGLE EVENT!!! I missed seeing so many guests and here I get to relive it again!!! I cannot tell you how happy I am and grateful for your eye for detail and flair—you are a true artist!! – Jennifer Chase, IHLA
