[BRANDEN AROYAN] Underwater Photography.
This photographer had a passion for photography, a passion for life, a zeal for giving back, and a love of surfing. With that, this talented artist combined all of his passions in to one, and thus…he found his niche. Branden Aroyan is a fantastic human being who exudes a remarkable illustration of what “finding your niche” is and not only turned it into a photography business, but a clothing business as well. Shooting along side his buddy and musician Jack Johnson, pro surfer Kelly Slater, shooting big clients and founders of Stussy, Billabong, Surfer Magazine, and more, he shows us that photography doesn’t have to be limited to just a print. This world traveling and wave chasing photographer has changed lives in the heart of a small Alaskan village, photographing riders all the while encompassing a successfully “chill” persona and carrying out his passion.
Today, Brooks Institute professor, Chris Orwig, co-hosts and introduces us to Branden’s “quiver”, his all organic cotton T-shirt company showcasing his photography, his co-captain (dog), and the amazing ride of Low Tide Rising.
