Meet Your NYS Music Staff: Photographer Brennan Fischer

Brennan Fischer has always embraced musical expression in all its forms. After a childhood filled with Michael Jackson, Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, and David Bowie, Brennan studied trombone and voice throughout grade school. He proceeded to take up the dreaded electric guitar, played with bands in high school and even attempted the cheesy singer-songwriter gig in early college. He now expresses his musical passion through hip-hop dance, occasionally jamming with friends on guitar and djembe, and shooting shows and festivals.
