OUR FOUNDERS

Brad Filliponi

BRAD FILLIPONI PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER & CO-FOUNDER

With more than 15 years experience as a professional real estate photographer, Brad has a deep understanding of what it takes to showcase a home in its best light.

Brad obtained his REIQ real estate sales agent license while young and saw a gap in the market back when he was running customer service for a prestige real estate office, specialising in multi-million-dollar deep waterfront property. Spending over a decade photographing homes all day and editing them all night, Brad decided to create the world’s greatest photo editing website with an editing menu, for everyone from professional photographers to property managers.

After the two prototype websites were developed, BoxBrownie.com was re-born and now offers an extensive menu of photo editing options for the real estate market as well as online retailers and developers.

When he’s not training Muay Thai, Brad can be found racing around in fast cars, riding his custom chopper or hanging with his family.
