SelfPortraitBorn in Southeast Texas, Brandi was first inspired by her uncle, a photography hobbyist who specialized in snowy landscapes and underwater worlds near tropical islands. She took her first black and white darkroom course from fine art photographer, Keith Carter, whose enigmatic images have remained a source of inspiration and aesthetic vision.

 After serving 20 years in the U.S. Air Force, Brandi has redirected her work and vision to Fine Art and Travel Photography. Her next project is to travel the U.S. in a teardrop trailer to photograph the people and places of off-the-beaten-path America.
