Kevin loves gadgets and what is better than a camera! These are amazing tools that allow you to share and shape our world with images. He has always known the power of a great image to influence people, whether it was candidate shot of friend or a tall building, it told a story that changed the way you viewed the world. His first camera was a manual Kodak film camera that required knowledge of settings based on the available light and not just pointing and shooting. Those lessons have made him a better photographer today, as getting a good shot upfront is worth more than a photoshopped image.
I love my job because people trust me to make them look good. Headshots are up close and personal. With all the factors that go into a great shot the real variable is what that person thinks about themselves. You have to engage them to bring out that smile or hold up their head and show the real person they are. That is what I love working with people to show them in a positive way.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I like to help small businesses grow and one in particular comes to mind. A small cupcake shop opened with a store that was barely 15 feet wide and lost on a side street. But the images of their desserts, business and location all helped to gain them traffic. Combined that with event photos they were able to show off their cupcakes and gain a following. I reshot them in their new and much wider business.
