    Brandon took headshots for everyone at our company. He was fast, efficient, and very professional. The pictures turned out very well and look great on our new website. Moreover, Brandon is genuinely nice guy, who is easy to work with and is eager to give you what you want. I would recommend him to others and would definitely work with him again in the future.

    I needed some professional 'not stuffy studio' head shots so I hired Brandon. The photos were taken outside and the results were great! He was patient and took plenty of shots for a good selection. He also retouched them with a very natural result. Highly recommend Brandon for your photography needs.

    Prompt response, on time, incredibly easy to work with, meticulous and professional; Brandon is an artist with a camera. I will probably be using him personally and professionally.

    Brandon is an incredibly creative, intuitive and artistic photographer. Working with him has been amazing. I have had several headshot sittings with him and he also took some wonderful photos of my wedding. I'm impressed with his professionalism, dedication to finding the right composition and his work in post. All in all, I highly recommend Brandon!

    Brandon is meticulous. He check every shot and is continually making adjustments. It amazes me that sometimes seemingly simple setups turn out such stunning photography. I assisted him on a couple of shoots, one a portrait shoot of an actress, and another was a location shoot in New York of nighttime neon. In both shoots Brandon never left a setup or location until he got the shot. It shows in his work. His photographs are consistently rich and beautiful. He is just as talented after the photograph is taken. The work he does with filters transforms the subject or landscape into something magical.

    Simply put, Brandon Jennings is an outstanding and talented photographer. I was incredibly lucky to have him photograph my wedding 2 years ago. It was a difficult situation because of the time of day. We only had about 30 minutes to get all of the photos we needed with the fading Fall light. Brandon not only coordinated my crazy family quickly & efficiently (and was nice about it) but also got every group photo we wanted and a ton of candid ones as well. The reception photos were even better. His use of light & color was outstanding! We all looked fantastic! He got there early, stayed late and got all of the shots I wanted and then some. I was concerned with the fading light at the wedding & it being too dark at the reception but I had nothing to worry about. Every photo turned out better than I could have imagined. I would use his services again and recommend him to anyone...especially for a very special occasion!

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. In a given year, I may shoot everything from Executive Portraits and Headshots to mountain landscapes in Colorado. Yet, what I get booked most for is personal portraits for individuals or families and editorial work for publications. Each client is unique and have different expectations for what they want. What I try to keep consistent is the quality and integrity of my work. This level of commitment has allowed me the good fortune of having some of the same clients for many years!

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Check out peoples portfolio's thoroughly before hiring anyone. Once you do a little research, you can start seeing clearly, based off their collection of work, who is professional and who just owns a camera with a few lights!

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. When it comes to photographers these days, everyone that owns a digital camera likes to claim they are a photographer. While anyone can take pictures, having an understanding of how the camera works and how to achieve a certain look through the correct settings is vital to being a pro. How the camera works should be second nature to a Pro Photographer. Having a vision for a project and a great working relationship with people is just as important. I feel that these are my strong points, and I think you can see this in my work. If your clients feel comfortable and relaxed on a shoot, you will easily be able to tell in the finished images.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. I really enjoy meetings new people, collaborating on new projects and working with fellow creatives to create incredible work.

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. I've been taking pictures ever since I was a kid and got my very own Kodak Instamatic 35mm film camera. Back then, I would often experiment by throwing a basketball in the air to look like it was falling from space or just snap tons and tons of photos of my dog! Growing up, my family had always been into photography, like my grandfather, who found an incredible Zeiss Ikon film camera in the rubble of a photography store during his tour of duty in WWII in Nuremberg. He went on to capture some wonderful moments and events through his photos. I believe seeing his big book of images from that time really inspired me to capture moments and record the world around me through photography.

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. I try and attend workshops as much as possible put on by pro photographers or organizations. You can always pick up something, even if it's just one thing, that will help you further your knowledge of photography. Sometimes those one things are huge!

Q. If you were advising someone who wanted to get into your profession, what would you suggest?

A. Buy the best glass (lenses) you can afford. The quality of the lenses you use are far more important than the type of DSLR body you own. To add, the 6 inches behind the camera, you, are the most important thing that will make your photos better. training, practice, web studies etc. all help make you better. I'm never to old to learn!
