Utilizing the camera’s movement, he plays with both constant and available light — specific skills honed in his food photography past. He focuses on the product to bring it to life on the screen. And with experience as an editorial food photographer and products photographer, he nails the bigger editorial picture — every time.

Or a shift of light or props. But when needed, he brings the newest technology in. With high-speed robotic arms or high-speed cameras, Brent captures moments our eyes might miss. So the elegance of that perfectly-moving sauce or a swift rise of steam are caught on film. And when reworked into your animated gif or commercial? You’ll be sharing the perfect moment, every time.
