Picture Perfect: Kevin Korveil James

Kevin Korveil Jones is a singer/record producer from Chicago. In March 2010, he decided to buy his own camera because he was tired of hiring photographers for events. However, Kevin ended up discovering his second love.

In such a short period of time, he has shot many celebrities, CD covers, live performances and is now beginning to photograph models.

Kevin is a natural creative that is willing to jump gates, climb walls, lay in the mud and do whatever it takes to get the perfect shot.

How would you describe your style of photography to someone who has never seen your work?

I describe it as beautiful people in Not so beautiful environments.

What initially sparked your interest in photography and what keeps it going?

I’m a full time record producer and recording studio owner. I initially bought a camera just to make some extra cash shooting music cd covers. I had no idea I was going to fall in love with photography.

How do you ensure that your work and brand stand out amongst the masses of photographers that continue to emerge everyday?

I don’t care what the masses are doing. I just do me.

From who or where do you draw inspiration from and how is it reflected in your work?

I bring beautiful sophistication to the hood. It’s boring to see a pretty girl in a garden or some safe environment.

What is one long term goal you have relative to your photography and how do you plan to attain it?

My goal is to shoot until my fingers fall off.

What is one major business-related challenge you face being a photographer and how have you or will you combat this issue?

Business related challenge is getting models to pay money. The game is twisted. Models want photographers to pay them or at there mercy they will shoot TFP (trade for picture).

Name one person that you would love to have an opportunity to shoot and why. Describe this dream shoot.

Jessica Biel

If you could do a dual purpose shoot that showcased your talent and brought awareness to a prevalent social issue, what would your shoot be called and what issue would you highlight? Why?

It would be called Target Demographic and I would highlight people that are not normally photographed. E.g. elderly, over weight, handicapped, homeless.

A picture is worth a 1,000 words. Describe your below picture in one.
