    MELVILLE, N.Y., Aug. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- This August, NikonNet and its
 inspiring monthly "Legends Behind the Lens" series
 (http://www.nikonnet.com/legends) will feature the work of talented lifestyle
 and beauty photographer Nancy Brown.  A successful model for almost two
 decades, Nancy has found her true passion behind the lenses of her Nikon film
 N90's and F4's, and more recently the D1X digital SLR camera, making
 photographs for an array of clients and brands within the fashion, advertising
 and lifestyle industries.  Her incredible work has been featured in the pages
 of major publications like Glamour, Redbook and Cosmopolitan.

 their particular disciplines in photography but who also have an exciting and
 inspirational story to tell," said Tracy Mack-Jackson, manager of Internet

 modeling and fashion have translated into a unique vision and keen eye for
 interesting lighting situations and beautiful composition within her
 photographs."
      After completing photography and design courses in New York, Brown began
 to pursue her passion and grow her career as a pro photographer.  Her creative
 outlook and background in the fashion and modeling field has given her inside
 knowledge and a first-hand look into the art of photographing people.  As a
 photographer, she creates an understanding and vision of the shot before it
 takes place.  Brown emphasizes the importance of the relationship between
 photographer and subject in order to create a real image.  She has taken her
 years of experience as a professional photographer to become one of the
 leading commercial photographers in the business traveling around the world to
 complete her assignments.
     Brown has applied her expertise, having published many books on the
 subject of photographing nude subjects. Her latest book, Nude & Beauty
 Photography released in 2001, outlines the secrets to working with models and
 using different techniques to achieve beautiful results.  She also takes time
 to lead workshops around the country to educate photographers on different
 technical approaches, visualization and various other techniques.
