  1. Bryan spent several years during the sixties at art colleges emerging with a couple of design degrees. His first job was in Fleet Street in London where he rose from junior designer to chief illustrated book designer at Macmillan Publishing, then moving to Octopus Books in Mayfair as commissioning art editor.


At the end of the seventies Bryan returned to his native Yorkshire where he worked as a newspaper artist, an advertising agency visualiser, and manager of a commercial photographic and video company. After a period of freelance work he formed a design and advertising company, Ledgard Jepson Limited. Expansion during the late 80s and early 90s resulted in an office in New York.


After leaving the company in 2003, Bryan continued to operate as a freelance
publications designer and photographer. His work has appeared in publications and websites for Sky Arts, BBC Radio 2, The National Fairground Archive, The Geographical Association, The English Folk Dance and Song Society, as well as national and local newspapers.


Bryan has become an obsessive street photographer and his images have been published in a book, The Way I See It. He is currently planning an exhibition of his work.


Married to Mel, he has two daughters, Jo and Rose, and lives in Yorkshire
