Brennan Fischer is an experienced and eclectic photographer that can help you bring your creative vision to life. Whether it be a corporate headshot, family portrait, coverage of an event or performance, or a staged shoot of your treasured newborn, I come equipped with the technical skill, experience, perceptual awareness, and creative flair to preserve your precious memories and promote your unique persona/brand. I have served as a staff photographer for UpstateLIVE, now NYSMusic (nysmusic.com) online music guide, and a newborn photographer for Mom365 photography company. I have covered many events and performances in the San Francisco Bay Area and the greater Syracuse, NY area including weddings, B'nei Mitzvahs, dance recitals/performances and auditions, as well as fundraisers, theater performances and drag shows. I also have shot corporate headshots, yoga promotional materials, portraits, families, and boudoir.
I love the variety of skills and experiences one cultivates as a photographer. I love being the creative director behind a portrait project or headshot: choosing a beautiful/interesting set, choosing a mood that fits a client's vision, and noticing a person's aesthetic assets to focus on and amplify. I love the experience of being a "hunter of moments" in performance or event photography; exercising my perceptual acuity and awareness.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have the most extensive experience in events photography through Upstate Live (concert photography), freelance work for dance companies/studios (Bodywerk Dance/Oakland, CA, Gotta Dance Studios Syracuse, NY), and several fundraisers, B'nei Mitzvahs, weddings, birthday parties and theater performances. I stand apart from the crowd with this type of photography because I am very quick on my feet, and have learned to anticipate beautiful moments. Possession of the photojournalistic skill of being in position when "the magic happens" makes my work special.
