Although this Chicago native, now Dallas living boy wasn’t born with a camera in hand, it took about 24 years before photography landed in Kyle’s lap.
(this is where I stop talking in the 3rd person)
After obtaining my degree in Visual Communications at the Illinois Institue of Art, I set out on a creative career in graphic design. On the side, I started to dabble with photography and soon it consumed my life.
Seven years later photography has taken me on an incredible journey. I’ve been able to shoot some of my favorite artists as well as travel to Jamaica and Ethiopia where I had the honor to photograph for orphanages and help raise awareness.
More than anything I’m an artist to artist photographer. Every project I take on, I cultivate the message and style to cater to my clients needs. It’s not just the photos you are taking but, the story you are telling. From a simple portrait to a drawn out fashion look book, I am always collaborating with my clients to achieve one artistic goal.
