Photographs Tell A Story. This Is My Story.

Spontaneity for me is essential when creating, so I’m never too far from my camera. No matter where I am or who I’m with, I always keep myself prepared to shoot. Some of my favorite photographs I’ve captured aren’t planned at all—they are the result of impromptu interactions during a photo session or pausing to capture special moments as they unfold on a road trip with my best friends. When the lighting is just right, I make it my mission to stop whatever I’m doing to explore and document it. In these photographs, I aim to capture my personal perspective and leave it illuminating for not only myself but for the viewers as well. My best photos tell an ambiguous story that the audience is able to interpret independently; the continued encouragement from my viewers drives my creative exploration. That’s the incredible magic of what I am fortunate enough to call “work.”

  2. I am a huge fan of Brandon Woelfel. His images are always beautifully composed and coloured and this book is an absolutely beautiful way to view them. I find that when looking at an image on a screen often the colours look different to how they're supposed to, to me, the colours look far better in this book compared to on my phone or computer. I'm a massive fan of how thought out each of the pages was, the colours are all positioned so that they match or are complementary and the images on both sides of the book are either from the same photo shoot or from ones that are visually similar.

  3. Brandon Woelfel's photos are the epitome of beauty. He always manages to capture shots that look like they are from a dream. His editing skills are magic even though his raw photos are amazing regardless.
