Having worked with and photographed such national musical giants as Al DiMeola, Marian McPartland, Chick Corea, Amanda Ambrose and John Hammond Jr., not to mention many well-loved Vermont talents like Big Joe Burrell, Braine knows her way around a recording studio and a concert stage. From band portraits to live performances, capturing the creative energy of musicians is her specialty. Not only does she have years of experience shooting still images of live performances at events like the Peacham Acoustic Music Festival, Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, and the Discover Jazz Festival, for example, she loved a good crowd shot as veteran video camera operator for the Vermont Reggae Festival, under the direction of Karen McGerger, at Azure Moon Productions from 1993-1997, as well as, several hardcore, alternative, and garage-band performances for the Good Citizen ‘Zine video series. She’s created footage and promotional music videos for such bands as: Farm, New Nile Orchestra, Science Fixon, Freefall, Chin-Ho!, Pine Island Band, and a live-edit series for The Kept Writer Bookshop & Cafe. These programs included a wide variety of singer-song writers, such as Josh Brooks, Karen McFeeters, and Patrick Fitzsimmons.
