My name is James Brown. I am a graduate of Gwinnett Technical Institute, Lawrenceville, Georgia, and have an Associates Degree in Commercial Photography. I worked as a Senior Forensic Photographer with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for 30 years before retiring in 2018, and continue working today, once again, as a Senior Forensic Photographer.
Over the years, I've had photos published in National Geographic, Spaceflight Insider, America Space, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, FloridaToday, CNN, Aviation Week and Space Technology, Nasa's Astronomy Picture of the Day, the Washington Post, Space Launch News, the Sanford Herald, Georgia Peace Officers magazine, and many others. Books include Forensic Photography, The Importance of Accuracy, Handbook of Forensic Photography, Relics of the Space Race, and Space: From Earth to the Edge of the Universe.
I had the honor and privilege of photographing the Space Shuttle program for 23 years. I loved it, and miss it tremendously.
