BTPNY was born out of love and necessity.

Brandon grew up with parents who both shot 35mm film SLR cameras.  He started shooting at an early age, learning theory, composition and timing.  As digital technology began to change the shape of the photographic world, he saved his money for his first digital camera (when other kids his age were saving for their video game consoles), and picked up his first digital camera and a copy of Photoshop.  

By high school, he was in the darkroom daily developing photos, getting critiqued and learning the art of developing.  He picked up countless books on HTML, Java and web design and started honing his craft for working in the digital medium.
