Brett Nadal is an award-winning commercial and editorial photographer and filmmaker, specializing in capturing moments with people of any culture or context.  A Chicago native, raised by a Cuban father and a German mother, he began his career as a photojournalist at age 19 and now produces Fortune 100 advertising and design assignments.  

Brett is also an enthusiastic husband, father (of 4), speaker and percussionist (mostly congas).  When possible, Brett enjoys Cuban and Caribbean music while working and loves to share unique and rare rum (not while working).

In addition to being a profoundly thoughtful and visionary artist in studio, Brett and his crew have also brought full-fledged productions to some of the most difficult-to-reach locations in the United States.  Never at a loss for action, his sets have been visited (always under the supervision and protection of rangers) by wild coyotes, alligators, whales, deer and eagles.  He also has a meaningful connection to wild bats … and at age 32, is one of the friendliest artists working today.
