  • Comedian Kevin Tate Loosens Up!

    Over the past several months I have cast a much bigger net and have stayed busy shooting a wide variety of people.   Recently I was asked to photograph the up-and-coming comedian, Kevin Tate after being contacted by his manager with the request to capture Kevin's more personal side rather than his "performer" side.  Challenge gladly accepted!

    When Kevin arrived at my studio I learned (like myself) that he is originally from Detroit and we hit it off immediately.  We talked about basketball, baseball, growing up in the "D", our musical tastes and life on the road with comedians Bill Bellamy and Mike Epps.

    After a few minutes of talking I could tell he was being himself and it was time to capture Kevin just being... Kevin.

    Thanks for taking a look at my update.  I am still very much around and am still enjoying the ability to make great images.

    I simply asked, "Do you want to go for a swim while you're here?" and he said, "HELL YES!".
