Photography: Brandon King

“Brandon is the best guy I ever liked and his photos are quite impressive too. If it were not for him I would not have any documentation of my life and chances are, I would forget how sweet it actually is. Thanks for the memories Brandon.” – Blazey

Quite a testimonial for the prolific Brandon King, Art Director, Photographer. Here’s a lensman so busy putting out all his stuff on display, I don’t quite know how to sum it all up – so I won’t. Expect some return visits to the BK portfolio.

I’m going to start where I first found him, Brandon King’s photostream on Flickr.

Brandon King - Clinton Hill NYI like the newer Brooklyn galleries, a string of photos taken in August, 2011 in Clinton Hill, New York, NY, US, (using a very good Canon EOS 5D – if only I had the money right now). Clearly there’s been a spell of rough weather, it’s the calm after the storm.

Brandon gives his personal details as home town, Springfield (doesn’t say which one), currently resident in  Brooklyn, United States.

The Flickrstream hosts various collections representing only a small part of Brandon’s output. I could show you just his urban photography, small detail to high-rise and all of it elevated to American epic, but he also excels as a portrait photographer. You can tell how attracted he is to people, energy and dynamism just explode out of every shot.

Brandon King - QuicksetI was trying to pull out some highlights of the portrait shots but I couldn’t decide – they’re all fantastic. Instead I’ll put up the ‘contact sheet’ for a couple of Flickr sets – ‘Quickset’ which is all portraits and ‘Our Own Thing’ which is a mixture of portrait, urban and domestic. Just go to Flickr and take a look.

If that’s not enough, I’m returning soon to his ‘main’ website:, which is an aggregation of all his personal interests, including some good music choices.

Brandon’s other site is a photoblog, mostly showcasing city photos, but there’s a mix bag in the category list.

Brandon King - Our Own ThingFinally the bkbooth at is his commercial site covering people, parties and events. This one concentrates on people portraits; young and funky, energetic, immediate. I want to meet a lot of those people. RC
