Established on the island of Nantucket & working internationally, Brian Sager creates images with lasting impact. Focusing on luxury weddings, commercial clients, and fine art photography, Brian relies on his strong interpersonal skills, unique attention to detail, and a deep understanding of the photography medium to create beautiful, timeless work for his clients.
With a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, Brian is captivated by the intrinsic psychology behind photography. He is intrigued not only by the way our minds react to visual stimuli but also by the inherent ability of photographs to evoke deep connections and emotions. Brian crafts poignant visual narratives employing meticulously refined stylistic techniques. Infusing his expertise from a background in editorial photography, he seamlessly blends an editorial standpoint with an authentic, candid approach to narrate the unique stories of his clients.
Brian’s fine art photography focuses on nautical nuance and uses light to highlight otherwise under appreciated details. Brian is most at home when near or surrounded by water. Growing up sailing, he spent every weekend on or in the ocean, so it was only natural that a love of ocean and sailing photography emerged. With a lifetime of sailing experience and 10,000 miles of offshore sailing under his belt, Brian photographs many of his fine art pieces while aboard sailboats in New England and the Caribbean.
Brian’s fine art work is frequently exhibited in galleries on Nantucket & is currently on display in the Thomas Macy Gallery & Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery. Recent notable fine art commissions include a 20 x 10 foot, wall sized image for the Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s new dining hall, custom large acrylic prints for the Nantucket Community Music Center, and a complete art installation for the Specialty Surgeons of Connecticut.
Brian enthusiastically supports several charities and nonprofit organizations through the donation of fine art photographs. He has been involved with the Nantucket Golf Club Children’s Charity Auction, Artist Association of Nantucket’s Gala live & silent auctions, Habitat for Humanity, Boston Children’s Hospital, Team IMPACT, & NAMI/Dragonfly Nantucket to name a few. Brian and his wife, Carey, opened their first brick & mortar showroom, Sager Fine Art, in Cohasset, MA in 2021 and welcomed their first child in 2022.
When not working with clients, you will always find Brian in or on the water, regardless of the time of year or temperature of the water!
