1st Diane Stahl, hired Brough as a Photographer in 2004, and hired Brough more than once “Brough is a wonderful photographer and a true professional. Regardless of the subject, he records the moment beautifully. We worked together on a very special oral history project where Brough had to photograph six geographic areas in Baltimore City, capturing their character, architecture and people. In addition, in some cases he had to take a new color photo of a place that was already captured in an old black and white archival photo...and he did it so that when the theatrical presentation used the slides...the old photo appeared, and then his photo was superimposed and blended in perfectly as it transformed to the new. Brough was also a lot of fun to work with!” May 12, 2009
