Who is kit?
Based in Boston, I've spent the last five years documenting the people and bands that comprise the city's thriving independent music scene. I work both independently, and as a staff photographer for the award winning Sound of Boston music blog.
Having earned the trust of the local music scene and its constituents, I regularly tour alongside some of Boston (and beyond)'s finest independent bands, serving as tour documentarian. I began my touring career with a month long, 14-city tour of China with Boston bands Dent and Skinny Pigeons. Over the ensuing years I have travelled up, down and across the country with Boston, New York and Nashville based bands TWEN, Bat House, Skinny Pigeons, Mail Thief and Porno Portal to Florida.
When not on tour or at a show, I take the skills I've honed in the chaotic world of concert and tour photography and put them towards event work. I love scanning the crowd, finding and capturing the quick moments of of joy and intrigue that make for compelling event shots.
Most recently, I spent five weeks in Japan, teaching photography to Northeastern undergraduates as part of a study abroad program.
