"vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others" 

Jonathan Swift.

Where do I start?

Well, I began taking photographs seriously in 1984, I know, that was a long time ago.

Since that time I have been blessed with an incredible career and had the good fortune to photograph hundreds of actors and celebrities. Home is Toronto,Canada where I live with my beautiful wife, six children and a mischievous golden doodle named "Teddy".

I am an artist and love to paint. My work may be seen here, www.brookepalmerart.com.

I was star-struck only once in 30 years.

I was assigned to photograph Sir Elton John with the cast of an upcoming film I was soon to begin work on called "It's A Boy Girl Thing". Through a series of unplanned events I found myself alone with Elton John in his backstage change room. When Elton shook my hand I made a feeble attempt to say hello that even I did not understand. I have always been a huge Elton John fan.

I often describe working on a film as joining a mad circus where this incredibly talented family of entertainers and craftsmen come together to work feverishly for a short time to produce a piece of art. When the project is over the circus disbands and we look for a new circus to join. It's a romantic notion of what we do but not far from the truth either.

During the summer of 2016 I was hired as the stills photographer on the iconic Warner Brothers, New Line Cinema feature film "IT" which went on to become the highest grossing and most successful horror film of all time.
