I began my career as a photojournalist, working for such news outlets as the Associated Press, United Press International, and Sipa Press. My photos have appeared in Rolling Stone, Time, The Seattle Times, and other US and foreign news publications.

In the mid-eighties, I was the staff photographer for the Golden State Warriors Basketball Team. Following that, I traveled to Lithuania to cover Sarunas Marciulionis (the first Eastern European to play in the NBA) on assignment for the San Jose Mercury News. The story also ran in the New York Times.

In 2014, ESPN interviewed me and used my photos for a documentary on the 25th Anniversary of the 1989 Bay Bridge World Series and Loma Prieta Earthquake.

My love of Blues and Jazz has spanned decades. For many years I was the staff photographer for SFJAZZ and Yoshi's Jazz Club. That work offered me extraordinary photo opportunities. I have also been fortunate to build friendships with many of the artists that I have photographed. I continue to be a contributing photographer to Down Beat, Jazziz and Living Blues magazines. David Rubien of the San Francisco Chronicle wrote, "You might call Stuart Brinin the photo laureate of the Bay Area Jazz World."

My current client base is varied; Musicians, Corporations, Non-Profits, and Universities regularly hire me for marketing photos and news-worthy events around the San Francisco Bay Area.
