Who is Kit?

I cut my photographer’s teeth in the grunge and haze of Boston’s underground arts scene. An economics student amongst the city’s creatives and visionaries, I fast learned to work with those who had wild, dramatic designs that needed a practical, rigorous mind to realize them. Out of the underground and into the professional, I use those same skills when working with clients and creative partners to craft images that move their brands and ideas forward.

Now based in New York, with work published in Vogue and the New York Times, you’ll find me focused on working alongside the city’s artists and companies to keep creating images that propel each individual’s vision ever upward.

As for origins, I was born and raised in the heart of San Francisco and came up surrounded by old-school hippies, streetwear collectors, musicians, and every other stripe and flavor of person the stereotypes would have you believe. My dad, a Brooklyn native library worker/photographer, zealously documented every waking moment of my upbringing. With cameras fixed on me at all times, he made sure that they became an ever-present fixture in my life. My mum, hailing from a grim English factory town, made sure I grew up with a will to get things done and a stiff (but still emotionally available) upper lip.
