This is a Lampert Family history website, right? Yes, so then how does Barry Brown fit in to the picture? Because Barry Brown is a dear friend of the web master (me), that's why! Art and Barry came to know each other in 2000 when Barry did photography for Art taking photographs of his Giant Schnauzer, Karma. Art and Barb were impressed with his work and the two families became close friends. Barry's wife Aimee was a Dolphin trainer turned dog trainer at that time. Aimee helped with training Karma, and later Nemo, helping tune each of the dogs to obtain titles in AKC competition. There is much more to the story but those are the essentials. Barry has teamed with Thomas Wiewandt and is offering photographs for sale on the web. I would encourage each of you to explore the site Wild Horizons This is really good stuff folks. The paragraph below is taken from Barry's Bio Sketch on the Wild Horizons site. Aimee works for the curacao-sea-aquarium training dolphins once again.
ABOUT BARRY B. BROWN
Avid outdoorsman and underwater photographer, Barry Brown has spent the last four years documenting life above and below water in Curacao, Netherlands Antilles. Focusing on the island's coral reefs, he has worked hand-in-hand with several businesses and environmental groups, including SECORE, a marine conservation organization based in the Netherlands. His image of a research submersible was recently featured on the cover of DIVER magazine.
Stemming from his background in art, Barry spent years photographing nature and culture in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Among his favorite subjects were the nation's largest motorcycle rally in Sturgis and tribal powwows of the Lakota Sioux.
Barry, his wife Aimee, and their loyal spotted dog Inca are enjoying an adventurous stay in Curacao. Aimee is a dedicated dolphin trainer and works for the Seaquarium there. She's Barry's sharp-eyed dive buddy and a master at finding photographic subjects.
The passion these two have for sharing their life and work with others is an inspiration to all who have had the pleasure of meeting them. We are honored to showcase the beauty, diversity, and intrigue of the underwater world through their eyes.
