A Canon Explorer of Light, Bruce has been the recipient of the Kodak Professional Innovators Award and Corel has awarded him with the rank of Painter® Master. Bruce’s photographic explorations of the New West were rewarded with an Artist in Residence exhibition during the Ansel Adams Retrospective at The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art. In Ballistic Publishing’s book, ‘Painter: World’s Best Painter Art’, Bruce’s neoclassical ballet imagery earned the Gold for Best Portrait. Bruce’s work was included in the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art’s exhibition, ‘The Art of Digital.’
