Brendan has a passion to tell the unknown story, inspiring the viewer through a connection to people and place.

“I just love to tell the stories of our time that are about remarkable people, places and ideas. I like to go beyond what we think we know, to unpick the seams and really explore the heart of the story. I think this brings an honesty and beauty to our work. I treat what I do and who I work with, with a great deal of respect.”
