Today we’d like to introduce you to Brendan Holmes.
Brendan, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
About 15 years ago I received a 5-megapixel point and shoot camera from an ex-girlfriend and I never turned back…from there I grew a keen interest in photography. Gradually over time. As I became more confidant and grew more experienced, I graduated to shooting with SLR cameras and using some studio lights.
I’m lucky enough to be a member of a touring band that travels all around the world. I get to wake up in a different location almost every day and have a fresh ”palette” so to speak at my disposal. This keeps it interesting for me and I’m never bored or lost for things to shoot on a daily basis.
When I’m off the road from touring, I dive right back into being a full-time photographer. I do headshots for actors/business people and sell prints from my web site or through social media.
I’ve done a few exhibits before in LA and hope to be doing another by year’s end..I also hope to release a book of some of my favorite shots from my travels, sometime next year.
Has it been a smooth road?
Well, it hasn’t been that easy a journey…I’m as guilty as the next person saying that they’re a photographer…With the proliferation of digital cameras, it was quite easy to get into photography. I mean anyone can press a button and take a picture. I found myself in the deep end and am now slowly working my way backwards to try and learn as much as possible about the craft. I’ve learned so much, but it’s a never-ending curve, which I’m quite content with.
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I’m generally a photographer who sells a lot of fine art prints from my travels around the world. I have also worked in portrait/editorial/ and commercial work too. I’m most proud of my portrait work as I work on getting to know the client and making them feel relaxed and confident in front of a camera. It can be nerve-racking for a lot of people who aren’t used to having their picture taken. You can usually see the person become more relaxed throughout the shoot and the pictures tell the story.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I feel that LA is definitely a good place for a photography business but it might be a little oversaturated so to speak. We’re a city that draws in the best talent from around the world…so it might be a little harder to get on your feet here compared to other cities…
