Next General Meeting
Wednesday, January 14, 2015
7:00PM to 9:00PM
Kevin will discuss expanding your business with event photography and the products we offer our clients. He feels as a professional photographer, we can deliver great images on site and problem solve in the tough situations.
Kevin started his photography career while still in high school. His first job was as a photographer for a local manufacturing company where he grew up in Northern Michigan. After moving to Southern California, he spent several years working in local professional portrait and commercial labs.
After spending 7 years as the chief lab tech for the Los Angeles Daily News, he then joined the Eastman Kodak Company in the early 90’s as a Technical Sales Representative in the San Jose/San Francisco area.
After leaving Kodak, he decided it was time to be a full time photographer in the Orange County area of Southern California. Anaheim has one of the largest convention centers west of Chicago, so event and convention photography was a logical venture.
In the last few years, his event photography has included photographing speakers on stage, stage performances and corporate events. Many of the events include printing the images on location for delivery to the guests. He also photographs the show performances to create posters for clients to use to promote their entertainment departments.
Some of his current and past clients include: Morongo Casino, Agua Caliente Casino, Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Dodgers, AARP, Sony Music, Life Extension and the Anaheim Visitor and Convention Bureau.
