Brenton's path to being a photographer started before he was born; his father was a professional photographer his entire life. When growing up, Brenton's ABC's were aperture, bulb timer, and circles of confusion. Though Brenton has been mostly self taught, his father has always been there to offer an opinion, critique, or words of encouragement to help further his studies. Today, the passion Brenton has for photography is greater than it was yesterday, and continues to grow with every sunrise.

camera Canon EOS 70D

I have been obsessed with photography since my first elective class in middle school. My parents got me a point and shoot and I would take pictures of everything. I went through countless disposables on all of my childhood vacations. However, I never had any formal training. I worked with a few different photographers and learned their workflows and absorbed some technical skillsets. I'm also an avid learner with youtube following challenges and practicing as much as possible.

Photographer

How did you get started with photography

I began my photographic journey while studying abroad in Amsterdam in 2008. I had purchased my first dSLR for the trip and found myself behind the viewfinder most of the time instead of practicing music (the reason I was there).

What do you love about your job?

I love meeting new people and forming a bond between me and my subjects, even if it's only for a brief time. It's challenging to photograph people you don't know in a way that makes your subject look honest and true. There's a level of trust that must be achieved before this can happen, and I enjoy creating that relationship. That's what I strive to do with my portraits and whenever photographing people.

What are some of your favorite places in San Francisco to take photographs?

There are so many great places in San Francisco to photograph. Some of my favorites include: Marshall's Beach, Crissy Field, Land's End, Golden Gate Park, North Beach, Fort Mason, and many other parks and neighborhoods that dot the SF landscape.
