A Passion for the Art

Widely recognized as one of the top portraitist in the world today, Bradford Rowley's portraits of distinction can be seen in many of the most luxurious homes throughout North America as well as abroad.

Having a passion and love of the art from a very early age, Bradford drew inspiration from the great masters of portraiture from the early Renaissance Period to the present. The impact of the works of such legendary portrait artists such as Sir Thomas Gainsborough and Sargent would greatly influence Bradford's style.

In 1988, Bradford opened the doors to his first studio and became international-award-winning during his first year of business.

By 1992, the "Bradford look" was quickly catching the attention of some of the most discriminating taste in the greater Los Angeles area. As word of Bradford continued to spread, so did the reach of his clientele. Clients began to travel not only from throughout Southern California, but also flew in from out of state to be photographed by him.

In 1997, Bradford was invited to join the prestigious Presidential Circle: an exclusive group of approximately fifty of the top photographers in the United States.

By 1999, Bradford began to receive numerous invitations to speak at both national and international photography conventions. Bradford also began to hold private seminars for photographers which would sell out in as little as four days, and photographers would travel from as far away as Australia to learn his techniques. To date, Bradford has taught photographers from more than twenty five different countries.

Bradford's New York Studio on West Red Oak Lane about 30 minutes outside of Manhattan shares the short street with the U.S. Tennis Assoc. and a Marriott Renaissance Resort.

In 2002, Bradford was asked to serve as the Advisory Chairman of the Presidential Circle.

In 2011, Bradford joined Gucci, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Ave., Tory Burch, Louis Vuitton, Worth Ave. Yachts, Pucci, and other exclusive brands at 150 WORTH on world-famous Worth Ave. in Palm Beach

2006 marked a major milestone for Bradford as he opened a second location in New York about 30 minutes outside of Manhattan. This studio serves a very select group of clientele from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and other Eastern States.

As demand continued to grow for Bradford's museum quality portraiture, further expansion was necessary. Bradford opened up his third location in Manalapan, Florida inside the 5 Diamond/5 Star Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Shortly after, Bradford secured a permanent location on world-famous Worth Ave. (the Rodeo Dr. of the East Coast) in Palm Beach which opened up in 2011.
