Kevin Ames is a commercial photographer immersed in creativity.
His fascination with photography started with the gift of a Kodak Starmite 127 camera. On a field trip to Idaho's Historical Museum, he photographed his classmates. After processing the film and printing it in his parents' combination darkroom/bathroom, he sold prints for ten cents apiece. At the ripe old age of twelve, his career was born.
Kevin started doing commercial photography while attending Boise State University and working full time at Idaho Camera. His career continued as part of the first generation of videographers working for the NBC and CBS affiliated television stations in Boise. He has also written, produced, photographed, and directed television commercials. His technical skills and knowledge of professional still cameras and retailing them landed him a technical representative position with Osawa Trading Company, then the importer of Mamiya medium format equipment. His success in that endeavor led to a promotion to district sales manager for the Southeastern United States based in his new hometown, Atlanta. He often photographed his sample cameras, lenses, and accessories for newspaper and magazine advertisements. Upon realizing that his undying love was photography, he left the company and opened his current studio.
His photographs have appeared in Time, Newsweek, and the Wall Street Journal. His work has also appeared on the covers of Professional Photographer, Photoshop User, and Atlanta Sports and Fitness magazines. He works for corporate clients including AT&T, Coca-Cola, Carter's, Honda, and Westin Hotels & Resorts. Kevin's studio and home are located in Atlanta, Georgia.
