Brandon Schulman has been taking pictures since his childhood, making prints in his fathers B&W darkroom before he could even read.
Upon Graduating from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara with honors he moved to NYC to start his commercial career.
Brandon has traveled to 13 countries over the past 9 years; constantly drawn to new environments and cultures.
Roughly three years ago Brandon realized that he was forgetting about something very important, his own country!
Since then, he has set out at least every year for a two week project photographing a few states at a time.
Brandon predominately shoots with his Linhof Master Technika (4x5 camera) and prints every print by hand in his own Color Darkroom in Brooklyn, New York.
This is my third big trip (second Kickstarter project) for my ongoing series titled: “A Portrait of America Left Behind”.

It seems every 15 years the photo industry retreads the stuff we used to do and call it new.
this is a perfect example of what we did in studio 20 years ago. And we did it before computers.
Back then,...in the olden dayz,.. like 18-20 years ago,... photographers called it "Photo Illustartion"
In fact some photographers whole business and marketing plan was based on their photo inllustartion and nothing else.
Suffice it to say that they did not last long and the smart ones rebuilt their business model and managed to stay in business.
Others were stubborn and not so lucky. (Names witheld to protect those now out of business)
Some of you, older than 20, may recall when Chip Simons
began his career and was one of the first to introduce the concept of light painting for editorial and commercial photography. This was around 1990 or 1991? I can't recall exactly.
Those interested in photo history can dig up an old copy of PDN to see the article they did on him.
Next came Aaron Jones and his invention: the 'Hosemaster' which was an interesteing marketing gimmick along with the instructional videos that so many ran to invest in.
kinda like those guys you see buying up all of the latest crap at the Photo Plus Expo that will help them become "Pro Photographers".
Even earlier Man Ray Pablo Picasso was photographed in 1949 doing a quick sketch in the air.
SO why did this trend never last?
Because it is time consuming, labor intensive, and th eresults can not be duplicated exactly every time.
As we know clients want it yesretday, they want dozens of shots a day, and they want it cheap. Light painting, when done properly ain't cheap.
Shooting digitaly certainly speeds things up but even so your still looking at long time exposures and if your using strobe your doing multi-pops of the stobe.
Amazing results but not something for those not tech savvy. We also as in the Youtube video used non-standard forms of strobes and lighting.
("And I'd be happy to sell you that information.")
For any photo school students I would suggest spending a weekend playing around like this.
It will teach you invaluable lessons in lighting and exposure.
I should also add one more thing, anyone can do this type of photography.
Very few can do it very well.

"Papa, ... Music is your love, but Photography is your Religion." - Joya D. Hall-Sullivan | Age 10
"All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth." - Richard Avedon - 1984
"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." - Thomas Alva Edison
"Any photographer who says he’s not a voyeur is either stupid or a liar." - Helmut Newton
"You don’t have to sort of enhance reality. There is nothing stranger than truth." - Annie Leibovitz
"When you find yourself beginning to feel a bond between yourself and the people you photograph, when you laugh and cry with their laughter and tears, you will know you are on the right track." - Weegee
" The camera is much more than a recording apparatus. It is a medium via which messages reach us from another world." - Orson Welles
"Some people's photography is an art. Not mine. Art is a dirty word in photography. All this fine art crap is killing it already." - Helmut Newton
"Our virtues and our failings are inseparable, like force and matter. When they separate, man is no more. " - Nikola Tesla
"I think all art is about control - the encounter between control and the uncontrollable." - Richard Avedon
"The first 10 000 shots are the worst." - Helmut Newton
“If I have any ‘message’ worth giving to a beginner it is that there are no short cuts in photography.” – Edward Weston
"Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn't have it in the beginning." - Mahatma Gandhi
"Ultimately success or failure in photographing people depends on the photographer's ability to understand his fellow man." - Edward Weston
"If you want reality take the bus." - David LaChapelle

"I don’t think photography has anything remotely to do with the brain. It has to do with eye appeal." - Horst P. Horst
"Be yourself. I much prefer seeing something, even it is clumsy, that doesn't look like somebody else's work." - William Klein
"Avedon claims to have been the best photographer in the '60s - bullshit - Bob Richardson was - despite or because of being insane and strung out on drugs, I managed to do photographs that are considered iconic - being known as the 'photographer's photographer' means I lead and they follow - I'm broke and they are rich." - Bob Richardson
"If you're absent during my struggle, don't expect to be present during my success" - Will Smith
"Either take the lead or follow behind, just stay the fuck out of my way." - James Sullivan
