We had the good fortune of connecting with Brandon Wolford and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brandon, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
It was the only thing that made sense, I had worked as a grip on film sets but I couldn’t find any more work and I loved creating with my camera. Best option was to just slap my own name on the product and start creating for people. I knew that there were hundreds if not thousands of others doing the same thing, I just hoped my personality and style could set me aside from the rest.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My art is capturing light and shadows with a camera, I’d say what sets me apart is my ability to work with any scenario. Yeah having a gnarly budget can help but I’ve yet to have one and I get by just fine.

Every project seems to soar higher and higher than the last, which, I learn more and more from each one so I think the next project will always be the one I’m most excited about.

I’ve been at this for six years and though it always gets better every phase of my career has had a big low. You just have to keep creating, make sure you’re working on things you love to do and never settle for less than what you feel you can accomplish.

A lot of lessons happen when you’re trying to make things work, you’re going to make mistakes and you have to learn from them. I used to hate my own work and it would drag me down creatively and now o see each piece of work as an “I know I can do better than that” so I do, on the next one.
I can’t say I want anyone to know anything about me, I want my art to release a feeling of enjoyment and anyone who works with I just want enjoy working with me.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Well, I’m a sunset strip kinda guy so that’s definitely number one on the list but also gotta eat at Dog Haus, Burgerama, and hang out at Vasquez rocks as well. The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My buddy Cory Ingram definitely deserves some credit, he’s helped me be able to push my craft and concentrate on the things I love to learn about. We work together very often now and it’s been a perfect fit. You can see the progress with each project. I love it.
