In today's world where most photographers are using the same digital techniques to enhance their portraits, Bradford has chosen a very different path.
Though digital is used at times, and sparingly only where and when it makes sense, Bradford prefers to use the classic techniques of the old world masters.
Rumiana, the master artist who has been with Bradford for the last 15 years, is recognized as one of the top portrait artist in the United States. Born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria, Rumiana was tutored in the Old European methods of classic artistry. As an adult, Rumiana along with her family escaped the tyranny of communism and eventually settled in Southern California. It is her art which completes the Bradford characteristic; giving each portrait an exquisite three dimensional and life-like look finished in fine european style.
The decision to choose oil based artistry applied by hand to the portrait over the much less expensive and faster digital technology distinctly sets Bradford apart from his peers. Just as a fine Rolex® watch made with classic swiss movement stands out in a sea of watches made with the more common quartz movement, the grandeur of the Bradford Portrait dramatically stands out as an original master work of true art.
