The world truly is a wondrous place. There is beauty everywhere. There is magnificence. Splendor. Inspiration. And despite what the cynics might say, the world is filled with moments of pure perfection.

Noah Bryant has spent the vast majority of his professional career searching for those fleeting moments of perfection. Each time he brings his camera to his eye, he’s focused on the solitary goal of capturing that perfect moment that helps show the rest of us just how spectacular the world around us truly is. Sometimes that proof Great Sand Dunes National Parkcomes in the form of a monumental statement like the way the moon sets perfectly in the nape of the jagged peaks of the Rocky Mountains. Or the windswept ocean of sand dunes that can shift as quickly as an overturned hourglass. Other times the proof that Bryant captures might be more obscure, but it’s certainly no less poignant. The fading light of day shining through the fragile wings of a honeybee as it gathers pollen from a blooming tulip. The ruffled feathers of an Atlantic puffin as it fights against the unrelenting storm trying desperately to push it out to sea.

How often do moments such as these go unnoticed by a world too preoccupied with the future to take the time to stop and focus on the gift that is the present? It’s that present that Bryant gives back to each of us with the moments of perfection his photographs portray with such profound elegance. It’s a pursuit that he’s been focused on since he 

got his first professional camera when he was barely a teenager. A natural photographer at his core, Bryant took that camera, and with more naïveté than training, set out to capture the world he saw through his lens.

The world responded.

Bryant soon became a photojournalist for local newspapers, capturing breaking news, major sporting events, noteworthy personalities, and world-changing incidents while winning several awards along the way. He took his eye for composition and his uncanny ability to capture that exact moment that tells the complete story and moved into commercial work photographing advertisements, portraits, weddings, pets, and nature. Despite his awards and accolades and commercial success, Bryant never really saw himself as an artist.

“I always thought art is what other people did when they created something beautiful – a painting, a sculpture, a poem,” Bryant said. “I wasn’t creating anything beautiful. I was just capturing the beauty that was already there. It never seemed like art to me.”

That all changed one fateful day when Bryant happened into a fine art gallery and saw framed images from Kebler Pass, Coloradoacclaimed photographers lining the walls.

“The photographers were capturing the same kinds of scenes – the same kinds of emotions – that I have always tried to capture,” Bryant said. “There was no doubt in my mind that these photographs were works of art, and that’s when it hit me that maybe what I was doing was art.”

It was a kind of awakening for Bryant. A transformation from the mindset of a photojournalist to one of a true artist. Unrestrained. Undefined. Free. It’s the same kind of feeling that comes across so vividly in all his photographs.  

With his newfound artistic freedom, Bryant set out to capture the scenes that moved him, focusing less on the subject itself and more on the emotions those scenes stirred inside him.

“I think that’s what art is supposed to do,” he said. “It’s supposed to connect with us on an emotional level. We don’t have to explain it, we don’t have to justify it. We just have to feel it.”

Bryant’s ability to make viewers feel the emotion of the scene with so much clarity quickly began to get noticed by fans on a global scale. His photos continued to win awards and were featured on websites such as National Geographic and Smithsonian. But it wasn’t just publishers and critics who responded, it was everyday people. Bryant’s website and social media channels exploded with an outpouring of support and praise from fans from around the world.

“That’s when you realize that something special has happened,” Bryant said. “I tend to see my work with such a critical eye that it’s often hard for me to see the beauty – not in the subject matter, but in the picture itself. But when strangers from halfway around the world are commenting on how much an image moves them, that’s when you begin to see that maybe, just maybe, there might be more to it than my critical eye allows me to see.”

Noah Bryant while photographing in the Rocky Mountains. It’s an understatement of epic proportions to anyone who has ever taken the time to gaze into the immense depths of any one of Bryant’s photographs. Because regardless of the scope or the subject, Bryant’s photos have an uncanny ability to freeze you in place as you stand, staring with your head tilted and mouth agape, at the scene he immortalized. A scene that fills you with reverence for a world that exists just beyond the borders of your comfort zone. A scene that somehow puts life into its proper perspective and reminds you just how beautiful the world truly is. A scene that proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that moments of pure perfection really do exist, and fills you with an unquenchable desire to seek them out for yourself.

That’s power.

That’s art.

That is life in its purest form of perfection. And that is exactly what Noah Bryant captures.
