Brendan Hunt (b. 1994, Bronx) is an American photographer living and working in Asheville, North Carolina. Born in New York and raised in Vermont, he began his exploration of photography at age fifteen. He started photographing consciously at age eighteen, creating work in response to questions he has about himself, his environment, and the medium.
He attended Bard College, where he studied under Stephen Shore, Larry Fink, Gilles Peress, and Tim Davis. He participated in his first exhibition in 2013, exploring the use of strobe with three other photographers. In 2015, three of his photographs were published in New York Magazine. Brendan graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in Photography following the completion of his thesis, It, Phantasm.
Brendan has worked as an assistant in and outside of the studio; most notably, for Stephen Shore during the archiving of the entirety of his prints and the spotting of select negatives. He has also worked as a performance photographer, an event photographer, a wedding photographer, as a lab technician, and as a darkroom supervisor. He recently worked for a small start-up company, digitizing children's artwork into the presentable format of a book.
In addition to photographing, Brendan's professional expertise include color correction, contrast control, and printmaking; all three in both digital and analog methodology. He is also well-versed in editing, sequencing, digital reproduction and manipulation, graphic design, book design, curation, and Adobe software (ie: Photoshop).
Brendan is available for immediate hire regarding anything and everything photographic.
