Streetfashion MagZZine editor Briana DeShields met photographer Kendra Branker.
"Currently killing the photography game here in Central Florida is Kendra B photography. Her energy is unlike anything i've seen in a photographer. It radiates in each and ever photo! Every shot hers belongs on vogue tear sheet or a cover of Marie Claire. Heres is a little bit more about this photographer on the rise- Kendra B!"
I love them both parts of the photography process. But if I had to choose, I would say shooting. It's truly incredible to have a vision and make it come to life in camera.
It all depends! The subject, the lighting, the mood that I want to convey all play part in determining what's the best version of my final image.
What are your favorite lenses and why?
Canon 24-70 2.8 is my ultimate baby. My mind is always racing in regards to how to frame and angle each image. The 24-70 allows me to zoom in for a tight portrait or go wide for a full length shot, without having to worry about how much space I have in order to back up and get the shot I want. Plus! It's so amazingly sharp.
What are your hobbies outside of photography, do you have other sources of income?
I freelance as a photographer, and work a “9-5” to supplement my photography career until I'm ready to make that jump into full time.
Are your friends and family supportive?
Immensely! My biggest support system when I'm feeling down.
What is your end goal?
My end goal is to have a stand alone portrait studio and travel the country/world to pursue my photography career as far as possible
What are your favorite concepts to shoot?
Fashion and beauty! For me, they require such attention to detail that it's truly a rush to plan and execute yet these kinds of shoots.
Who is your favorite photographer?
Location offers a lot of variety
Have you faced any challenges?
Of course, it's a part of the business How have you or how are you dealing with these challenges ? I try to keep focused on my own personal goals.
What inspires you?
Life. I find inspiration in everything, it's a bit overwhelming at times.
If you could work with any celebrity who would it be?
J. Cole, he's my favorite artist ever so it would be an absolute dream.
I hope to have my own photography studio right here in Central Florida.
