A proud husband and father, Michael was one of the genuine good guys.
My sincere condolences to his family and all those who, like me, counted him as a friend.
Rest in peace MCB. You will be hugely missed.

I hadn't seen Michael all that often in recent years - although the last time was just a few weeks ago, when we were both working in Austin - but his company was always a pleasure. He was a wonderful photographer and an even better bloke.

I never met personally Mr. Brown; I even't spoke to him a lot of times on Facebook or by email; but everytime I contacted him he always had an answer for an amateur and unknown like me; he always had a word. When I started developing my contacts and searching fro drivers and other motorsport-related people, I found several through his wonderful albums, and he helped me when I asked for additional help identifying a driver, and contacting him. He was an amazing photographer, and a great man and he will be sadly missed. I can only spoke for professional things, because I feel bad for even speaking for more, as I never met or spoke often with him. But it's my tribute.
RIP Michael C. Brown

Which he generously shared in massive numbers - without captions, but always ready to answer the inevitable questions, as an ongoing & enjoyable WWW.
...a superb photographer whose images will prove an inspiration for generations of motor racing fans for years to come

I remember him from the US in the early nineties. He always seemed to have time for everybody and anything.
I notice from the link that his "introduction" to the sport was very much like my own - a Scalextrix set and a pricture of Jim Clark. Incredible. How many people, I wonder, started their interest that way?
Rest in peace, Michael.
