Kevin describes his work below:

Action, fitness, lifestyle and portraiture for advertising and editorial clients.

I love shooting people with a zest for life. I can work fast and light or crew up as needed for both stills and motion production.

Every assignment is an opportunity to create something extraordinary – authentic, emotional, time-slowing, cinematic imagery is how I see the world. And my notepad is filled with future personal projects.

I’m easy going, confident and as comfortable in a studio with a bank of strobes and seamless as I am on location hanging from ropes on the faces of Mt. Rushmore.
