Here are Brandon's comments:
Without a doubt, 2016 has been one of the most challenging, yet character-building years of my life both personally and professionally. There have been so many highs and lows that I can't begin to put into words what it feels like to go out on such a positive note.
I am so grateful for this amazing community and what it has done for not only my career but for raising the level of quality and professionalism in our industry across the board.
PFRE has become the global authority on real estate photography and has created a platform for like-minded professionals to come together, learn from one another, and encourage each other in our own unique creative endeavors.
I am forever in debt to my mentor and business partner, Tony Colangelo. His guidance and support have been invaluable in the development of my business. For those of you looking to take your photography to the next level, I encourage you to seek out a coach, mentor, or any other educational opportunities available to you. This is exactly what I did and it has proven to be the best investment I've ever made.
Once again, thank you to Larry for everything you do and for bringing us together as a community.
Cheers to a great 2016 and looking forward to an even better 2017.
Happy New Year PFRE!
