10 minutes with Bradley Meinz

When did you first know that you wanted to be a photographer?

For as long as I can remember I always looked at the images in books first before any of the words….

If you could go back 10 years and give yourself advice, what would it be?

I moved to LA ten years ago from the Midwest. I always spend time in NYC. I started going to the east coast in college but living full time on one of the coasts is something I wish I had done sooner…

Any words of wisdom for the up and comers?

Shoot what you love – generally you would only be assigned the type of work you have to show – say what you need to say with your images!

    These photographs are ‘amazing’. Bradley’s comments are so true. As a very young child, the eyes and the imagination of this photographer were GENIUS! Bradley, you saw images and beauty in ‘raindrops’ as they fell onto the windshield of a car before you were old enough to even read. I always knew you were a very creative spirit. You have surpassed all expectations and you make me PROUD beyond words. Your work and who you have become is among my GREATEST joys. Continued success to YOU and know how much I LOVE YOU and all that you see, feel, express and capture in your stellar photographs AND in your attitude and your way of sharing your talent with the world. You are my PRIDE and JOY! XOXOXO “MOM”

      To me, your photographs reveal the quirky humor that lies beneath the skin of each of your subjects. Each time I look at your portraits, Bradley, I find myself intrigued–wishing I knew more about each person…wondering what even a piece of his or her story is. Wondering if perhaps you are the one helping them all to see the laughter that might thrive in their own hearts.
      What fun to see your work again! You are a master. lajohnson
