Here are a few client testimonials:
“The quality of Kevin's work speaks for itself. What can't be garnered from a portfolio is the process. Kevin has always added tremendous value in every creative endeavor we have collaborated on. Pre-production, he is a font of both creative and technical knowledge on how best to capture the essence of what we are going after. He brings unique ideas to the table, and is respectful of over-arching goals—whether commercial or artistic. During a shoot he has full command of the situation and manages the client/creative dynamic with aplomb. Post-production has always been seamless, timely and without drama. He was early-in on the shift to digital workflow and has kept on the leading-edge of his field. I can highly recommend Kevin for either photographic or video projects.”
- David Puelle, Principal, Puelle Design
“I needed a photographer who is that elusive blend of highly technically competent and personable. Our shoot ran the gamut of healthcare sites and we needed to be able to quickly get in, form a rapport with our subjects (patients and care givers) and get shots that went well beyond standard-issue "institutional" photos. Kevin is not only a terrific photographer, he was able to swiftly adapt to the variables of each shoot and put everyone at ease. We did seven shoots in three days (no lights, no drama, small crew) and everything came together beautifully. Bonus: For a former New Yorker, he's actually a pretty decent driver.”
- Kimberly McCall, Manager, Marketing & Communications, MaineHealth
“I love to work with Kevin Brusie because I know he is going to produce top notch photography that is exactly what I need. He knows this business inside and out, and I am always fully confident that he will treat my clients, their staff and models with the utmost respect. Plus he's fun to work with– even on long tedious studio shoots. Bottom line Kevin Brusie makes my job easier and he makes E+M Marketing look good.”
-Mandy Ward Davis, Principal, E&M Marketing
"There are countless photographers, art directors and writers in the creative industry out there—all who are which very capable. Time and time again, however, I've chosen Kevin Brusie for projects that required more than great images, more than Photoshop expertise and more than great value. Kevin has the ability to breathe life into any subject matter and more importantly, any individual, by capturing those subtle moments and raw human emotions that we all react to. Sounds simple, but it isn't. His technical savvy is always above standard, and his people skills are off the chart, which is invaluable on any project. A great collaborator, and passionate explorer, Kevin continually gives back to the community through his work and has become a world-class photographer."
- Kurt Squiers
"It was February, and we had a great concept for a corporate poster series. I asked Kevin to line up the models. We just needed one little thing to make it happen... dandelions. Not just the flower... tiny seedlings dispersing into the wind. Most photographers would have politely told me I was crazy. But not Kevin. He was amused, intrigued, and entirely challenged. We carefully transported Florida dandelions (hand-picked and flown to us in buckets) to Maine in the back seat of the car. (Windows closed.) And the shoot was a major success. Kevin is a die-hard. He's talented, creative, and innovative. He loves a challenge, and he understands the client side of the equation. He's got spirit. Just don't ever tell him it can't be done."
- Laura Offenberg Dague
VP, Creative Director
Dakota Group, Inc.
“I have had the pleasure of working with Kevin on a number of occasions. He is a highly skilled photographer with a great attention to detail and among all, extremely professional. He has the gift of capturing/finding people's inner personality and telling their story through imagery.”
- Travis Goulder, Design Manager at IDEXX Laboratories
