We had the good fortune of connecting with Brian Kramer and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Brian, what do you attribute your success to?
I Believe one of the most important things that has contributed to my success has been our customer service and adaptability to all situations and our volunteer and getting clients involved donating to charity.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I started photography as a 13 old with my first camera. All through junior and high school I took photography classes. since Loving the freedom and art I attended Otis Parsons school of design while taking business classes. While photographing bar/bat mitzvah and weddings I was able to build my clientele who not only trusted me with their memories and confidential was always paramount. I was one of three photographers to start digital with kodaks’ pro team in 1995. I took the big risk and leap of faith as where our future of photography would go. It was a long road to get complete trust so that my celebrity clients would give me creative freedom and know I would always protect their privacy.. I have been able to travel the world with royalty, and celebrity clients to create wonderful memories for them and sometimes their companies. I love what I do and look forward to making people vision come true and and my flair.
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?
I would probably start with a boat ride in the marina or down the coast. Hollywood is always interesting for some extra culture. I would take the downtown to some roof top bar/restaurants. Maybe hiking in the hills above Hollywood or Malibu. Dinner Malibu for sure. Depending on timing take the to a premiere party for a new movie. Most importantly have a barbecue and bring friends together
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?
United in Harmony (camp Harmony) United in Harmony is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization that was established in 1989 as a response to homelessness and poverty facing children in our community. United in Harmony’s mission is to provide impoverished children with hope and opportunities. I became involved over 20 years ago. It makes you take a step back and appreciate life by donating our photography and time. My parent who always supported and encouraged me to be an artist and stay true to myself.
