For week #93 of the Photograph Your Love® Instagram Takeover, we were happy to have Braydon Russell join us. Braydon grew up here in Santa Barbara, CA, where he has been obsessed with photography since his father handed down a Nikon F3 to him at the age of 12. He hasn’t put down a camera since.

For the year preceding his takeover, this extremely talented self-taught photographer traveled the globe, photographing the everydayness of life. For his takeover, Braydon showcased some of his favorite shots of the people, places and things from his travels, some of which had never before been seen. I love Braydon’s mission which is “a journey to show that the world is one connected family and not to be feared, but shared and explored”. His love of black and white and street photography drive him to capture beauty in the simplicity of life. Braydon is happy to be part of our human family and we were excited to have him on board! Check out his takeover to see his beautiful images, the stories they tell and his interesting descriptions of each.
