Brandon started taking pictures at the age of 15, borrowing his father’s Nikon 8008 camera. All it took to fall in love with photography was a trip to New York City and some black and white slide film. The people and the texture of the city introduced Brandon to what he still loves to shoot: people in environments with character.
Brandon loves to talk to strangers and learn a little bit more about who they are, so naturally photography has become a tool for him to learn more about different people and cultures around the world. He’s had the good fortune to travel to some amazing cities and always looks forward to his next adventure.
For Brandon, as much as he loves dialing in the final image, the most important part of his photographic journey is observing his surroundings and truly living in the moment. Getting lost in a new city with his camera is about as good as it gets, even if he ends up just talking to strangers.
In 2015, 2016 and 2017 Brandon had the distinguished of having his photos selected by the editors of National Geographic as some of their favorite pictures submitted to the magazine.
