"How did the great master’s of the past create their work? They began with an idea, frequently made small sketches, and often lightly sketched on the blank canvas before transposing the vision they had in their head onto the featureless canvas. Over the years I have come to rely more on this same process to skillfully create my photographic art. Taking the time to visualize the finished portrait in my head, and even at times roughly sketching it out, breathes a freshness, vitality, and originality into the final canvas. As an artist, visualizing the final image allows me to focus on the moment and my connection with the subjects."
Though Brad began his career in photography similar to a lot of photographers -- by doing weddings, now, after years of study, he pours his knowledge into his craft and art, creating photographs of families, children, seniors, and corporate portraiture.
He is recognized for his artistry and has been honored to receive numerous awards from different organizations. He's had photographs displayed internationally as well as at Disney’s EPCOT Center. He received his Master of Photography degree from Professional Photographers of America in 1995 and his Craftsman Degree in '97.
When he's not in the studio, he spends time with his wife and daughter, hiking, biking, and traveling. These outings are usually like a photo safari with the whole family taking photographs. It leads to a little bit of fun competition between all of them.
