I received my bachelors degree in Mass Communication and Journalism, and for the first time had the opportunity to shoot a manual camera, develop film in a dark room and make prints. I discovered that it's a process I much admire.
Instead, my focus for a decade was on my passion of writing and recording music, taking a journey through multiple rock bands, and ultimately gigging with a friend as an acoustic duo in Hawaii.
I moved to Kauai, Hawaii in 2009 where my interest in photography was ignited by the lush landscape of the island, and a part-time job working as a sales associate in a photography gallery.
I began working professionally as a photographer for an agency out of the St. Regis Hotel; and after a couple of years I knew that it was time to move on. I started Bryan Geiger Photography and focused on travel and wedding photography.
Because I got into photography rather late in life (early 30's) I was extra motivated to improve my skills and was diligent about spending my time each day dedicated to the craft.
During this time, I met a girl from Slovakia while in Hanalei; and after only two weeks, I accepted an invite to go back with her to Europe. I took my camera with me, and together, for the next two years we visited some of the most beautiful destinations, luxurious hotels, and restaurants in the world.
A surprise pregnancy, and we quickly realized that it was time to begin a new chapter in our lives. We tried living between Hawaii and Slovakia, but after our second child, we decided to settle near my family in Gardnerville, close to Lake Tahoe. We now have 3 daughters. The first two born in Slovakia, and our third in South Lake Tahoe. After 10 years of being away, it feels good to be back on the mainland.
