Tell us about yourself
I’m a full-time photographer based on the East Coast of the United States. My time is filled with lots of different kinds of photography— weddings, family pictures, real estate, marketing, as well as travel. I’m passionate about capturing moments of beauty and communicating them to others.
Why do you travel and photograph your journeys?
What is your favourite thing or item to photograph?
What’s your go-to travel hack?
Got any gear you can’t travel without?
I often travel to cold places, and so I’m never without my bright red Fjallraven packable down jacket. Its light and warm and packs into a small pillow. It’s sort of become one of my “iconic” pieces. I’m usually wearing it in pictures, and people have started referring to my travels as “the adventures of Brendan’s red jacket.”
What destination are you eager to go back to?
How do you stay safe when you’re travelling?
What’s the best way to experience a destination like a local one?
What’s your favourite word in another language?
Fjaðrárgljúfur— it’s Icelandic for “feather canyon,” and one of my favorite places in Iceland. I love the word because it looks absolutely impossible to pronounce, but once you know how to say it it just rolls off the tongue.
