Gallery Features Photographer in December

01 December 2014

During the month of December, the Delmar Riney Art Gallery at Pratt Community College will display the works of Featured Artist Brian Elkins.

“Photography has been a hobby of mine since graduating from college in 2009,” said Elkins. “I began taking photos just as a way to document my travels for friends and family on social media, however, as I continued with photography, it quickly became a passion of mine. Through the course of the last few years, as I’ve evolved as a photographer, and as my cameras have improved, I’ve been able to teach myself new tricks along the way.”

Over the last few years, Elkins has had the opportunity to travel all across Kansas and through many states. On his journeys, he has encountered many great people, stories and animals ranging from rattlesnakes to buffaloes. Elkins’ pictures showcase some of the things he loves the most, which include traveling, storm watching, vintage aircraft, plant life and prairie animals. He hopes those who visit the exhibit in the Delmar Riney Art Gallery enjoy the many images and take away a greater awareness and appreciation for the creation that surrounds them.

By day, Elkins is the Coordinator of Enrollment Services at PCC. He graduated from Northeastern State University in 2009 with a B.A. in Political Science and from PCC in 2007 with an associate’s in General Studies.
