Could not have happened to a nicer or more qualified guy.

Congrats, Brad.

->> Awesome!
He helped me with a long term project on a baseball player that had a kidney transplant. Was a great story I pitched to him and he got the Times to run a whole spread on it. Steve did a great job at the magazine and Brad will carry on the tradition and add his eye!!! Very Exciting

->> It has been a long time since I drop by but
the rest of the comments here are right on the dot. A major scoop for the magazine.

This is the type of news that lands on you as a refreshing rain on a hot summer day as you hike somewhere in the hills of Chattanooga,TN.

When I think of Brad, from the way he is with folks, his SHARP VISION for the right image and the way he treats EVERYBODY, from a young shooter trying to make waves while learning the ropes to a well seasoned photographer, is how you wish ALL Ph Ed were in our industry.

Many of those wonderful traits are the same as the ones many of you got to see in Jimmy Colton.


GLAD he is going back to S.I...home where he belongs!

->> Brad reached out and signed me to shoot for him at The NYT. He is simply the best at what he does, and there isn't a better person in the business. Talent and kindness, he is what you dream of for a photo editor and now DOP. Can't wait to see what he does at SI!
