Brayden has been a full time photographer for years, and was one of the early adopters of Instagram, along with Dave Krugman, Eric Reubens, and many more.
We dove right in with his history in the corporate world, and the journey to learning what his calling in life was. Brayden is clearly not cut out for the corporate world, but a lot of the skills he learned there have proven incredibly valuable to him as a full time photographer.
He is goes into the importance of understanding professional skills such as creating decks and writing good emails to navigate brand deals. Next, we chat about his entry into the NFT space, and he gets a LITTLE fired up about his and Chelsea’s genesis piece on Foundation that, according to Deeze, is “aging like fine wine.”
After we get fired up, a tangent brought us to the topic of artists having more of a say in defining the artists of our generation, the frustration with collectors spending exorbitant amounts of eth on underdeveloped art while good artists are going unnoticed.
This tied in perfectly with the toxic positivity in the space and the WAGMI vibes and how those who consistently show up and contribute will be the ones who make it.
We finish off the conversation with my predictions for the next bull run, culture clashes between the collectible and art community, and the rise of art sales, even in a bear.
This is a very non-linear conversation but jam-packed with value for every type of participant in the web3 ecosystem.
