Waterfowl Hunting

2016 In Review

TWENTY-SIXTEEN WAS A BIG YEAR. New clients were booked, revenue milestones were reached, shutter clicks were off the scale, and the official year-end tally of My Butt In An Airline Seat surpassed 15,000 miles. In this video, you’ll find a smattering of my 2016 work from The Olympic Range to the Seychelles. Much appreciation to YETI and Frontiers International Travel, […]


South Plains Sojourn

South Plains Sojourn

  I LOVE THE TEXAS PANHANDLE. Some folks who live there despise it, and I get that. What’s to like about a flat place that smells like cow pies, where blowing dust can find your toothbrush, and where snow can drift as high as your barn…that is, if your barn survived that twister which spun your house off […]


Nostalgia, And All That

Nostalgia, And All That

MY EARLIEST RECOLLECTIONS of duck hunting were on the shallow bays and flats of the Texas Coast. I began tagging along with my dad at about age 8, and there was a period of time in those early years when I didn’t know that ducks even landed on fresh water. Eventually I was exposed to […]


2015 In Review

    2015 was a fantastic year of great shooting locations and new client relationships. My 2016 calendar is stacking up nicely and I’m looking forward to new photo-ops and challenges in the months ahead. Thank you all for your business and encouragement!


Have Camera, Will Travel

Have Camera, Will Travel

BACK IN EARLY DECEMBER I was hired to photograph a group of duck hunters at their private lodge in Northeast Arkansas. Like most member/guest operations, these gentlemen pour copious amounts of sweat and equity into their game, and the months of November, December, and January are set aside to reap the rewards. During my visit, they hunted […]


2014 In Review

Happy New Year and a huge thanks to my clients, models and location hosts for another great year of photography. 2014 was my most prosperous year, to date, and I look forward to new challenges and destinations in the year ahead.


Timber Mallards

Timber Mallards

Last month I had occasion to photograph scenes that I haven’t seen since I was a kid: muddy water standing beneath towering oaks, rings of ice around the trunks, and flocks of mallards working and calling and spiraling down through the canopy. I do love hunting ducks on the bay, but green timber mallards hold […]


2013 In Review

2013 In Review | Tosh Brown Photography from Tosh Brown Photography on Vimeo. Happy New Year, photo buyers and friends! 2013 was a great year and I appreciate your interest in my work. My 2014 calendar is filling in nicely with new destinations, clients, and challenges. I’m looking forward to the road ahead.


Big Water Ducks

Big Water Ducks

The dead-of-winter can be punishing for duck hunters, even here in the balmy south; but last week my son Blake and I drew three perfect weather days for our annual Texas Coast duck hunt with Brad Smythe. Scattered clouds, pleasant temps, and just enough wind to keep the birds moving. This year it appears that […]


Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

Fly Fishing in Salt Waters roosterfish feature 2012 was a great year filled with lots of photo-ops. As I tally up the columns I’m also happy to find another decent up-tick in sales. That’s three years running so maybe I’m some sort of lagging indicator of a stronger economy. Thanks to all of you who license my […]


Private Photo Assignments

Recently I’ve been booking a few private assignment shoots for folks that want a unique and lasting record of a special gathering of friends, clients, or family. I’m offering that program again this fall and here’s how it typically works: You schedule a cool event or trip that involves hunting, fishing, or outdoor activities I […]


The Waterline

The Waterline

I’m a creature of habit. That serves me well with most things, but not photography. One of the toughest challenges that I have in creating marketable imagery, is overcoming my tendency to shoot the same angles when returning multiple times to a favorite locale. Last week, my son Blake and I drove down to Rockport for […]


Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

Rainbow goodness: American Angler magazine Hey Folks – Another year is winding down and I’d like to thank all of the companies that license my stock images and hire me to go to cool places and frame scenes and punch buttons. 2011 has been a good year and I’m hoping that our collective climb from the […]


Roll Camera

Chad Belding hucking shells In April I traveled to the deepwood hinterlands of Bastrop County, Texas for two days of shooting with the Sportsman Channel. Their plan was to gather a selection of their television talent and devise natural sets for both videography and still images. My role in the project involved three different scenarios: […]


Going Coastal

Going Coastal

Last month I spent a couple of days hunting ducks on the bay with Rockport outfitter, Brad Smythe. Scads of pintails and redheads provided incredible decoying action for both the shotgun and camera. On the second day I got to watch and photograph some phenomenal dog work by Brad’s friend Walt Collier, and his lab […]


Flat and Windy

Flat and Windy

Oh my golly…it’s 2011. How did that happen? As it has been for the past umpteen years, the Texas Panhandle was the scene of my last hunt and photo shoot of the year. We found manageable weather and scads of birds up in the flat country and I was able to fire quite a few […]


The 2010 Holiday Grab Bag

The 2010 Holiday Grab Bag

Instead of showing you some cool new stuff that I shot in November (which I don’t have, because I was playing hooky in a deer blind) I’m now going to shift gears and thank the folks that have allowed me to perpetuate my twenty-five-year existence without cubicles, neckties, or shiny shoes. So, without further adieu, […]


The Heart of Duckness

The Heart of Duckness

After the New Year I got in a couple of Texas coastal duck hunts with my son, Blake, and friend Brad Smythe. I shot my first ducks around Rockport nearly forty years ago (damn I’m old), and until I reached my teens, I wasn’t even sure that ducks would land on fresh water. I’ve hunted […]


Shoot ‘Em!

Shoot 'Em!

  Last week I traveled to the Texas Panhandle for my annual goose and crane extravaganza with Blackfoot Guide Service. This is one of my favorite hunts, and the 2009 version was one of the best we’ve had in years. For a change, we had normal weather: lows in the 20’s and highs in the […]
