Known around the office as B. Jones, Brandon joined us three years ago and has absolutely destroyed every job we’ve assigned to him ever since. This goes from shooting weddings to side photography jobs (headshots, fitness shoots, product shoots), to production management, to helping Ben turn a school bus into an RV just in time for Ben to drive out to Burning Man (long story). What makes him especially awesome is his passion for good photography—we rarely see him without a camera—and his confident and kind, calming presence, combined with the work ethic of a machine—whatever machine is even faster and better than the one you have now. Brandon is also a lighting master.
We managed to lure him in just after he returned from his stint in the Peace Corps, where he served in a small village in the north of Togo, West Africa. There he taught English, ran after-school programs, coached soccer and helped establish micro-finance groups for local entrepreneurs—all, of course, with his camera close at hand.
