Brian has an eye for visual communications that truly transcends description. His ability to produce impactful imagery never failed to surprise or impress me. He consistently pushes the envelope of his abilities. - Jack Wilkinson of Sharp Wilkinson via Linkedin


"He is a talent with an unquenchable thirst for learning. I stake my 18+ years of Design and Art Direction by saying, Brian is by far the most gifted Photographer and Digital Artist I have had the pleasure of knowing in my career" - James Martin Senior Creative Manager 3D Design & Visualization at Walmart Stores Inc. via Linkedin

"We've worked with a lot of world-class photographers over the years but I am confident in saying that Rodgers is by far the hardest working photography instructor I've worked with."

"He worked at least 15 hours every single day preparing, filming, and then post-processing each of the shots for this tutorial without a single day off. We filmed this tutorial in in just seven days but it's taken us months to finish editing it." - Lee Morris of Fstoppers


"Brian has done GREAT work for 7Gen Construction. D.A.T.R. added the artistic vision that we needed to accurately express our corporate identity in print and digital media. Plus he's so easy to work with. Highly recommended by our team!" - Bob Farkas via Linkedin


Brian impresses you not only with the high quality of his work, but also with his work ethic. His ability to stay on point and execute when conditions are less than favorable is truly impressive and an example to those around him. To say you can count on Brian to deliver beyond expectations is an understatement. Brian's work speaks for itself. - Daryl Zernick of OnSite Health via Linkedin


"Brian's product work has really made an impression on me. In some of his most memorable shots he has combined fire and smoke with his products to produce some unforgettable finished images - Lee Morris of Fstoppers (Read it here)


"I hired Brian to do a professional headshot for my job.  I’m not a big fan of getting my photo taken and would never classify myself as photogenic.  Brian was very easy to work with.  He was very quick to respond to my request and was able to accommodate me in less than a week.  He was very professional, nice and just plain easy to work with.  His final project came within a couple days and I admit I looked great!  Would definitely look to Brian for any future photography needs!" - Ranae S.
