Dear Brian,

I really appreciate you doing a great job of communicating both your expectations of me and what I should expect of you.  You made it so easy by answering all my questions before the shoot.  You made the experience very comfortable going into it, especially for someone who has never done something like this before.

At the shoot, you were extremely welcoming and exceptionally polite which made everything behind the scenes light and fun. A few jokes here and there - you made the entire experience stress free and really fun!



I am very grateful to have connected with you and have had the opportunity to shoot with you  multiple times now.

You are a very professional family man who takes his work seriously. Every time we have shot together, you have made me feel extremely comfortable because of the clear communication and direction.

The photos themselves are of great quality and I find them, to this day, to still be on my list of favorite photos I have done and best photographers to work with!

I hope to work with you again and continue to see what amazing shots we can make!


Brian is absolutely amazing!

I’ve worked with him a handful of times and will continue to do so. His photography skills are phenomenal and have exceeded my expectations each and every time we have done a photoshoot.

He comes up with so many different unique and creative ideas that are simply exceptional.

Thank you for the beautiful photos and thank you for making me feel so comfortable and relaxed during my photoshoot. The images always turn out outstanding due to all his knowledge in the photography field; from shooting angles, to the right studio space, to having the right equipment.

I highly recommend working with him and look forward to working with him in the very near future.


Brian made me feel very comfortable being myself and making suggestions for images and poses. It was refreshing to work with someone who wants to showcase the models personality and individual strengths and not just take cookie-cutter images.

During both shoots I felt very well directed, especially in finding ways to relax my face in order to take fun and authentic portraits and poses. He came to the shoot with a detailed agenda and ideas for moving us forwards, but was also flexible and happy to play with ideas which I really enjoyed.

The photos from  my shoot with Brian exceeded my expectations in the quality of the photos. 

I would whole-heartedly recommend Brian to anyone as a talented and genuine photographer. He's very easy to work with, and is a fun artistic collaborator as well as confident visual director. I left my photoshoot feeling more excited and energized than when I arrived!


Brian Gray is one of the best out there. As a lifestyle model, I shoot many looks. He is the only one I go to for fitness looks. His work is clean, and creative. He is professional, but still makes the shoot fun, and relaxing. I always look forward to shooting with him, and learn something new each time. I have no doubt he could shoot any genre if he wanted to.

Brian was great!

He addressed every question I had. He made sure I knew exactly what to bring with me, how to present myself, and what the photoshoot was going to consist of.  Brian was very kind, respectful, and straight forward to his expectations.

During the shoot Brian told me exactly what he was looking for, allowing us to work well as a team. I appreciate when a photographer tells me if he likes a certain pose/outfit, and I also appreciate constructive criticism because in the end it’s a two person job. If I look bad, he looks bad. If I look good, we create beautiful art. It’s a team effort.

My photos exceed my expectations!  My photos weren’t OVER edited🙏🏻. They came out beautiful and I would definitely shoot with Brian again.  I Loved working with Brian and I can say I would encourage any model to work with him!


I had a great time shooting with Brian! He was very friendly and easy to work with.

Before the shoot he made it very clear what we would be shooting, he told me exactly what kind of outfits I should have ready and sent a mood board to show ideas. During the shoot, he was both professional and fun. I felt very comfortable.

Afterwards, the photos turned out amazing! The quality and lighting were very good. I would definitely recommend shooting with him because he is a great photographer, very prepared, and very helpful!
