Michael Brands, Owner/Photographer
Evan Gaynor, Photographer
Michael Brands is owner and photographer in Aspen, Colorado. “There is a sense of satisfaction when we help our clients and homeowners make the sale. I know we’re a small part of the team, but we are an integral part of the team, and I enjoy that. When a broker says ‘the photos sold the house’ (this does happen, by the way!), it’s a tremendous compliment.” An Aspen resident since 1994, he enjoys all the things the Aspen area has to offer, both in terms of natural environment and small town community. Michael is also a 16-year member of the Aspen Volunteer Fire Department. He and his wife Naomi have two daughters, Josie and Alex.
Though Evan spent the majority of his life in the midwest, he always felt Colorado was his true home. He moved to Glenwood Springs to pursue an Associates of Science degree in Photography at Colorado Mountain College, and is currently working to attain a Business Management and Leadership degree. In his free time you can find Evan hot dogging around the mountain on his skis or photographing the colorful landscape of Colorado.
