FEATURING: Braden Summers
WHAT IS YOUR PERSONAL MISSION?
My mission is to create that liminal moment when my audience is taken out of the mundane and (re)awakened to their desires to seek out beauty.
HOW DID YOU GET TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY?
I am a professional photographer, an artist, inspiring romance through narrative portraiture. The need to create was in my blood, it took years to discover that photography is the medium best suited to bring my visions to fruition.
WHAT IS YOUR PROUDEST MOMENT TO DATE?
My proudest professional achievement this year is two fold: Watching my personal series ALL LOVE IS EQUAL, which illustrates same-sex romance on a global scale, go viral and then continuing that vision on a commercial level for the Marriott International hotel brand by photographing their #LoveTravels campaign.
ANY PERSON YOU WANT TO GIVE A SHOUTOUT TO IN THE INDUSTRY?
I would have to say my producer friend Greg Jaroszewski. He traveled with me to produce ALL LOVE IS EQUAL. Without his help I don't think that this series would exist.
HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT ADHESIVE?
I was introduced to Adhesive through a wardrobe stylist friend Erin (Charest) Hall who I went to high school with. I went solo to my first event at the bar Honey at the end of April 2009.
