Laird Brown received degrees from Kent State University in both Photojournalism and Journalism. He was selected for a summer internship at National Geographic Magazine, which published across two pages a photograph he made on assignment. Laird went to work at a paper manufacturing company photographing and writing stories about and for employees. At another company he did a variety of public relations and marketing assignments. Along the way he earned a Master's Degree in Communication. He began his photography business in 2006. In 2010 Laird offered volunteer photography at Justa Center, a day resource center that helps homeless seniors get into housing. Over the next 4 years he created a photo story which turned into a 24-page magazine, which he published and donated to Justa Center for their fundraising (see editorial gallery).
