"I first fell in love with Singh Ray filters many years ago after a friend recommended them. The quality of craftsmanship and attention to detail with each and every filter is second to none."

Kevin’s photographic training began at age 8 when he received (as a beloved Christmas gift) his first SLR. He noticed that immediately he was attracted to landscapes: out of any photographic subject matter he could choose — even from the very beginning — he almost knew instinctively that he was going to make landscape photography the foundation of his life’s creative work.

Kevin is the very first grant recipient in the area of photographic fine art from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation (New York City), one of the largest Foundations in the world dedicated to promoting the arts.

Kevin is a longtime resident of South Central Alaska and primarily creates his photographic fine art throughout Alaska’s incredibly vast and beautiful wilderness. Kevin’s lifelong interest in photography has expanded from pure landscape imagery to his more recent in-depth exploration of abstract photography. As he explains, “The goal of my fine art photography is principally to capture texture which is an often neglected component within much of both landscape and abstract photography. I want the viewer to be able to feel the subject of the photograph itself.”

Kevin has been featured in various galleries throughout Alaska, as well as galleries along the West and East coasts. He’s also been featured in a number of online and print publications surrounding landscape photography and life in the Northwest.

Prior to becoming a professional landscape photographer, Kevin received a B.A. in political science from the University of Maryland (graduating cum laude) and a Masters of Arts from Virginia Tech, also in political science.
