Grinder Photography

“Anything that excites me for any reason, I will photograph; not searching for unusual subject matter, but making the commonplace unusual.” - Edward Weston

I see my images as a way to capture a moment in time, chronicling the things most people never notice or take for granted. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context. The image has to draw the viewer into a narrative or story, it has to draw the viewer into a place of familiarity. Most important, I truly feel the image needs to evoke an emotion for the viewer, good or ill. One way to achieve this is the image being not just technically good, but full of the heart and soul of the photographer.


Over the years I have learned to adapt to new technologies in the industry, several years ago I came into the digital age and have become proficient with both cameras and software. I learned that there is a time and place were digital is the logical medium, becoming the best way to capture the moment. Yet a little voice in my head though kept telling me not to give up on analog (film) photography, and I am so glad I did not. This does not preclude me from still photographing with digital camera when appropriate, I just find that there is a look that film gives that can not be achieved with digital.

I constantly have a camera with me when I travel giving me the ability too, hopefully, capture my images when I find the subject. Too many times I have found that if I see something interesting I should take time to capture the moment, or risk planning to return only to not able to return or it is gone. I have many ongoing projects I am currently working on.

A native Iowan he has lived in Seattle Washington, where he met and married Gaetana his wife of thirty plus years, New York City, and San Jose California.

When he is not writing about himself in the third person, Kevin likes to brew beer, make sawdust on his lathe in his wood shop and travel. He can often be found on his back yard with a pipe, a fine glass of bourbon or single malt, listening to music and enjoying a conversation with friends.
