Hello, my name is Henry Bradley. I grew up in Kingsport, TN, which was the home of the well known film manufacturer Eastman Kodak. As a child I remember taking trips to the library spending countless hours reading photography magazines and dreaming about expeditions as a National Geographic photographer. After saving paper route money for years, I walked to a nearby camera store and purchased my first camera at the age of 15. It was an old Olympus OM-G. Yes, I was the nerd with extra cans of film duct taped to my neck strap. With this camera I landed my first official position as a photographer with the high school year book staff. Over the next 20 some years my equipment has changed, film has all but disappeared, and my style refined, but one thing that will never change is my respect for the pioneers. They set out with a standard prime lens and passion. “There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.” – Ansel Adams
