Be Seen Media LLC is helmed by Philip Brautigam and Janice Nicholas. Since 1980, Philip Brautigam has made commercial photography and (mostly) single-handedly designed/produced/crafted multi-media marketing, product and communication solutions for hundreds of firms, including Microsoft Redmond, Microsoft European Operations Centre, United of Omaha, American Red Cross, Bastyr University, Comfort Inn & Transamerica Insurance Corporation.
Born a sensitive empath, with a keen ability to perceive the feelings and energies around him, Philip Brautigam saw very little “sustainability” in the societal structures of the time. He drove his rampant curiosity into a broad-spectrum self-training process resulting in the polymath bandwidth and expert craftsmanship skills similar to the professor on Gilligan’s Island.
At the age of 13, Philip converted a half-bath into a functioning darkroom and explored the melding of right-brain abstractions with left-brain craftsmanship to be able the have the powerful understanding of how to use the art of photography to bring beautiful ideas into reality.
During the 1980s Philip used his extensive talents in conceptual thought and photography to freelance as professional commercial photographer with a special focus on building effective marketing for small businesses.
As the 1990s dawned the Macintosh computer and the suite of software from Aldus allowed Philip to establish himself in the prosperous Seattle market as a talented graphic designer (and photographer) for the next two decades.
Philip and his talented wife Janice moved to Kaua‘i in 2010 and have recently relocated Be Seen Media LLC, back to the Seattle area (Duvall WA).
