From a young age, Kyle has been immersed in the world of photography, working alongside his father, Carl, who mentored him in the art of capturing memories through the lens. At the tender age of 8, he began his journey by learning to change film, progressing to capturing chairlift photos at 12 and shooting exhilarating ski and rafting scenes at 17. After completing his business degree at the esteemed University of North Texas in Denton, Kyle embarked on photographing portraits, weddings, and seniors, delving further into his passion.

Since graduating, Kyle has spearheaded the transformation of Southern Exposure into a modern-day photography enterprise, seamlessly blending technology and lifestyle portraiture to meet the evolving demands of the industry. This forward-thinking approach has allowed him to stay at the forefront of the ever-changing photography market.

In 2021, Kyle tied the knot with Rachel, a partner who constantly challenges him to adapt to market dynamics and truly understand the unique needs and desires of his clients. Rachel's background in the art gallery scene brings a fresh perspective to Kyle's work, allowing him to continuously push his creative boundaries.
Their partnership fuels their daily endeavors, as they strive to deliver the utmost excellence in every photograph they capture.

Since moving to Red River over two decades ago, Carl Brown has earned a reputation for the extraordinary ability to "shoot from the hip" and create perfect photos while mastering difficult photographic circumstances. Over 35 years as a professional photographer have given him a distinct advantage in conquering the unique challenges of outdoor portraiture as well as special events.

Because Carl shoots all portraits and reunions in God's studio, "The Great Outdoors," his clients can relax and be casual! Many say that their portrait shoot was as much fun as anything they did on their vacation. That is his goal - that people would have fun as well as come away with great photos!

Knowing how special my personal family photographs are to me, I understand how much your photos mean to you. That is why I take all of my assignments very seriously. I am confident that I will be able to meet or exceed your expectations. Preserving memories that will be cherished forever brings me great pleasure. It's fun!"

love how you look.
