Two Weeks in Israel

A photographic journey

I spent two weeks poking my nose all over Israel in March, 2018. I used my X-Pro2 with the 16mm and 50mm lenses, shooting mostly square. The weather was hot and the vistas sun-drenched, so I tried to bring out those aspects in the editing.

about Branden Frederick

I am a photographer: I have fun taking photos, and I always have.

I've had a camera in my hand my whole life, a 110 camera as a kid, and the high school's 35mm SLR later. In 2008 I spent six months doing nothing but taking photos and loved it. From that point on I've had my camera surgically attached to my hand (I lie). I went digital in the year 2000, and I came back to film in 2013. My parents tell me my photos are "nice".
