Jillian A. Brown is a Canadian born adventure photographer. Diagnosed with PTSD a few short years ago, she has used this to fuel her drive to connecting others to nature, adventure and themselves. She is particularly known for her niche of taking cameras to the extremes of paddling and remote expeditions accompanied by stories of her personal journeys along the way. Within her documenting, she has been able to achieve a World first, of paddling a Tandem sea kayak down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon and becoming the first Canadian to paddle across America. Pushing herself both physically and mentally, she knows no boundaries with her goal to connect others to the natural world, to living a life of passion and showcasing deep, and influential story telling within her photography and writing. Jillian A. Brown photography will be embarking on a new adventure this year. With the momentum from her last expedition paddling across America, her goal is to use this new found drive and exposure to inspire on a more personal level. Beginning speaking to paddling groups just a couple years ago, she found love again in being in front of a live audience. Having now done presentations on numerous different topics from University Ecology programs to High schools and now Cadet programs. With each, the main focus is always a form of Connection.
This coming years goal is to now take her main presentation, Connection Passions on the road. Along this journey she will be connecting with outdoor groups within each community to take part in events and activities to help promote being active and outdoors. Connecting with schools, stores and corporations to reach as many as she can to inspire others with her presentation.
