The Power of the Personal Project
Personal work is the creative fuel that fires the flames. But beyond the personal satisfaction and need to create, the projects that Kevin pursues when he’s not on assignment have lead to new campaigns ranging from the North Face to the Opera. From his Falling Water series to SuperMoon project to Solstice People to Modern Gypsies –Kevin will take you behind the scenes on the ups and downs of the creative process.
"It's all about feeling: creating that emotional connection in images that range from quiet and still to explosively dynamic."
Kevin Steele loves shooting people with a zest for life. He 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 - and have a lot of fun. Authentic, emotional, time-slowing, cinematic imagery is how he sees the world.
Kevin focuses on active lifestyle, portraiture, travel: recent shoots include the North Face campaign, Palm Springs Tourism campaign as well as resort advertising projects in Cabo San Lucas and the Caribbean.
Recent awards include selection in the 2013 AI/AP American Photography annual, the 2013-14 Lürzer's Int'l Archive 200 Best Ad Photographers and Best of Show in the 2013 APA National Awards.
He was born in Kuwait with family roots in NY and a childhood growing up across a few countries (Panama was the favorite.) Life began in the darkroom every day after high school followed by college to be an astronomer. He embraces challenges, loves collaboration and honors the beauty of everyday.
