BRIAN KASNYIK I Brian was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1971. Difficulty in prononcing and spelling his last name prompted people to label him as KAZ. As a child he often admired the photography work of his late father.
In 1978 Brian moved to Olmpia, WA where the beginning of his photography and musical interest started due to the older neighbor kids giving him a collection of Kiss albums and posters. The sights and the sounds went hand in hand. while being a roadie for the Supersuckers and Agent Orange, Brian was mentored in photography by Tour Manager/ Photographer Wilbur Boyd and that is wen it all clicked.
