In this episode of ISO 400, we hear from David Brommer, a studio photographer and Director of the B&H Event Space where he has given many talks on photography. His talks largely deal with composition and developing a style, and all those videos are on YouTube. Yes, they’re long, but they’re well worth the watch.
He got his start in photography in the late ’80s, and for three years in the mid-90s, he ran a gallery space in Seattle called Suspect Photography, where he showcased some cutting edge work. Brommer’s had a lifelong interest in dark subject matter and religious symbolism, and much of it has a found a way into his work.
There’s a painterly quality to his photographers, which is, at least in part, a result of his art education, and when he talks about composition, he often refers to master painters.
