Excitement of the unknown & a carefree attitude towards his work is the driving force behind all of Brad's artistic pursuits. “When I work on a project I’m 100% committed to making a great photograph. Period. At the end of the day when you’ve put forth your best effort you feel really proud. I love what I do and I respect the hard work on my crew and all the people around me who help make it happen. I also make sure the process is as enjoyable as possible. At the end of some shoots I’ve been told I should be stand up comic instead of a photographer. If people are having a good time the work reflects that.
