Joe Lavine

Brad Bartholomew has been photographing subjects from the mundane to the sublime for nearly twenty-five years. He has always tried to treat each subject with enthusiasm, respect, and a sense of whimsy and wonder. His specialty is not specializing. He has been fortunate to photograph people and product, in the studio and on location; and  shoot for advertising agencies, design firms, and directly for clients. Brad believes in the collaborative nature of commercial photography, uniting inspired ideas.  A partial list of clients includes: Celestial Seasonings, JD Edwards, Children's Hospital, Coors Brewing Company, Forest Oil, Head Sports, Miller Brewing, Pentax, Qwest, Revolution Cleaners, Xcel Energy, and Keller Homes.
