Carl Brown

Owner and Primary Photographer


Kyle Brown

Photographer and Marketing Manager

Kyle grew up in the beautiful town of Red River and learned his photography skills from his father, Carl.  At 12 years old, he began shooting as a Summer Chairlift photographer and later graduated to the whitewater rafting action on the Rio Grande. At 19, he began learning ski portraiture at the Red River Ski Area. 

While attending the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, Kyle learned advanced family portrait techniques in a studio setting at his part-time job.  He is particularly adept at coaxing bright smiles from young children!

After graduating from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor’s in Applied Arts and Sciences, Kyle returned to Red River and uses his expertise in marketing and logistics to help Carl continue the legacy – and to grow Southern Exposure into its next generation.

Today, Kyle gets a blast from working with vacationing families as he captures their very best versions of themselves. His goal is to make his outdoor sessions the most fun experience they will ever have during a photo shoot!  During his free time, Kyle adventures into the New Mexico wildlands and captures land and waterscapes in the magic New Mexico light; he loves snapping that camera at the precise moment when nature suddenly exhibits her most astounding brilliance and beauty…

…almost as much as he enjoys capturing your best smiles!
