I truly believe in order us to grow we need to know and understand were we can from. The journey in my opinion is just as important as our final destination. The evolution of my photography started with the desire to capture breath taking landscapes and grew from there. After the purchase of my first DSLR in 2008 and many hours learning the ins and outs from any book I could get my hands on. I was able to capture theses images while out on a hike in Death Valley California
These were honestly the first two images I ever intentionally set out to captured. My photography desire quickly change from landscape to fashion due to the influence of my first instructor at the Art Institute of Las Vegas. After understanding the ability to control the mode and feel of the images with studio lighting I wanted nothing more to do with landscapes for now. Upon relocating to Wa in 2011 I set out to develop my fashion portfolio and thats when I first met and became good friends with Bri Seeley. Here are a couple of Images from her 2011 look book.
Then I wanted to bring my conceptual work into the studio. This was also captured 2012
|Above is my first fitness composite. Model shoot in studio and then added to trail landscape shoot in 2013|
and thats a wrap on my quick breakdown of the evolution of my photography journey. The most important thing I have learned along the way, is that the greatest piece of equipment is your own personal version and the ability to apply to your clients needs. I am look forward to the growth I will experience in 2016.

So this is where you grow up, how old were you when you left? I was 9 when I left. I moved to Florida with my mother and 2 bothers. She just wanted a better life away from the city for us kids. I lasted 2-3 years and I had to come back, I truly missed the city. Eventually all the kids gravitated back to the city and my mother ended staying in Florida.
Thanks for sharing Anthony and I hope this shows everyone that its never to late to live the life you deserve. More of my work can be view at www.shawnkinney.com
I turned 40 in May 2008. I had already lost 90 lbs at that point and had 10 lbs more to go. In June, on a Sunday, I ran my first triathlon. On Monday I had a colonoscopy and on Wednesday I stepped on the Ice for the first time in my life. Welcome to 40.

This was rebranding campion for Integrity Automotive(see the images on his website). The job was to bring a photography studio on location. Nate Bean the owner of Integrity Automotive wanted portraits of himself and his employee’s on a white seamless in order to blend into his already designed website. He also wanted me to capture his automotive shop and some of the crew at work. Here are the results..

Upon re locating back home to Sweet Home Chicago in late June, I found myself once again thinking I needed more. More space to shoot and more gear to be creative. But with time to reflect and some well timed advise from Clay Cook. He showed us all that all you need is what you have available. As he turned his living room into his studio were he does most of his creative work. So I mounted my $400 Canon 85 1.8 lens (I opted to pass on the L version of the Canon 1.2 with a cost of $1,700) onto my 5d Mark 111 and turn my living room into my studio. The living room is part of our 2bd room loft which is aprox. 16′ X 17′ with the benefit of high ceilings.
My lighting gear is still the Dynalite 1000er studio pack that is no longer for sale but allows me to use up to 4 heads. I typically use my standard 3 light set up.
|Back drop is a 4 ft Royal Blue seamless rolled paper. I often place the subject off center which allows some of the environment to creep into the shot and help establish depth in the image.|

and a couple of detailed shots of his favorite acoustic Martin Guitar.
and the final selection from the shoot
Don’t put unnecessary obstacles and limitations on yourself. Trust me there will be plenty of them naturally when you are out chasing down commercial work and just remember the most important piece of equipment is your vision and creativity!!!!

This is the home you grew up in. How old were you when you moved out?
If there is one significant thing in your life right now you could change, what would it be?
Here is an image that has stuck with me from my childhood. I went back to visit my grandparents in Chihuahua Mexico shortly after the accident. I remember going to work with my uncle who was a brick maker. They did it old school back then, they would gather adobe and bake it in a huge oven. One day, we walked across this railroad track with nothing on the sides. I was so terrified. My little feet fit perfectly between the wooden tracks which had to be 70-80 feet high. That railroad bridge has stuck with over the years, just because of how it made my feel that day. When I came across this image below on the internet it moved me and made me relive that walk.
