My Blurp

Susan Brannon is a photojournalist with over a decade of field experience. She has recorded the lives of the people of Palestine, Israel, Iraq, Egypt, Jordan and other theaters of conflict and war. Brannon's photographs are simply about people; their passions, their struggles, their lives. She writes "I am interested in gathering the truth of events, the behind the scenes stories, rather than the mainstream headline news."

Brannon's work is influenced by a background in archeology, anthropology, and international development; all studies in the change and growth of culture and humanity. Her images create an intimacy between subject and viewer beyone the norm of typical journalistic imagery. She does this by not just being a passive observer and outsider to an event, but instead, working as an active and engaged participant in the lives she records.

Susan Brannon has freelanced for both Reuters and AP; has contracted with International NGO's and recently has been producting photography workshops. Brannon is also the founder and director of the Crossing Borders Project, an internationally traveling exhibition of image and text recorded by and about the lives and struggles of the people in underrepresented groups.

Weddings in Italy

I have been shooting weddings in Tuscany by request, so I decided to keep it going! I now offer servies for photographing your weddings! To savor the day, the moment and the time. My style is both reportage (photojournalistic) and classic, depending on the moment. I offer packages of basic, classic and diamond! From covering the ceremony, the dinner, reception, party, before, couple shoots, and if you want, I can give a private lesson on how to take excellent images during your honeymoon!

I also partner with a company in Florence, Italy called who can arrange all the other things that you need to organize a beautiful wedding in Italy. They know of wonderful places in the Chianti region, caterers, where to rent that incredible car, music, lights, design, flowers and just about anything else that you need. Click on my portfolio to see some wedding shots! Send me an email for more information.

The Crossing Borders Book

Gives light into the lives of the Palestinian People who live inside of the Israeli Sepreation Barrier that divides the West Bank from Israel and the rest of the world.

Susan Brannon conducted a photography workshop with three groups in the West Bank: Women from Aida Refugee Camp in Bethlehem, The Tamer Institute for Education Youth Group, and the Palestinian Working Women Society for Development in Ramallah. The workshop was followed by international exhibitions to share their voice. The projects aim is for the exhibition to find its home inside of the West Bank at Aida Refugee Camp located in Bethlehem.
