Brad Forth

Strategic Marketing & Branding Developer


Stylistically experienced as a commercial and advertising photographer with focus on fashion, apparel and portraits; I passionately finished an MBA to compliment my Graphic Design and Photography background and degrees.
Over the past decade, I authored 25+ business plans, 3 grant proposals and designed visual branding for 31 small to mid-sized companies, (includes logos, website, photography, copyrighting, PR, advertisements) with the purpose of building a unified look and teaching owners how to communicate internally and externally. Also, I  designed, photographed and published 5 books.
I recruited management and creative teams and was the interior designer for 2 stores.
As a photographer, I was privileged to see my work published well over 100 times, shown in 4 galleries , which gave me the confidence to develop an art scholarship.
I have an Amish like work ethic. When given a project, I engross myself in it. Learning new things and meeting new people, is what I love.

Brad has a rare gift that combines the ability of detailed administration with rare artistic talent. It was a pleasure to work with him because I always knew, if he said he would do something, it was as good as done. His artistic eye is at once critical and creative. I highly recommend him as a photographer and as a manager.
