Featured Photographer – Kevin Foltz
Kevin is a wanderer. Raised in the Carolinas, Kevin has been working as a photographer for more than thirty years. Having had commercial photography studios in Nashville, Lima, Peru and Miami, he has made photographs for clients ranging from Kroger, Hydra Sports Boats and Gibson Guitars in Nashville to Toyota and Coca Cola in Peru.
Returning to Miami after living and working in Lima, Kevin won two consecutive three-year artist residencies at ArtCenter South Florida in Miami Beach. Kevin also was awarded the annual South Florida Consortium Artist Grant. Whilst living in Miami, he changed his career direction from being a commercial studio photographer to become a full-time destination photographer specializing in resort and culinary photos. Kevin also continues working as a visual artist in various mediums.
And after thirty years of wandering with camera in hand Kevin has returned to the lowcountry to live closer to his family and return to the oyster roast, grits and okra lifestyle that he has always loved. Kevin is currently a resident artist at the new Redux Contemporary Art Studios on Upper King Street in Charleston.
Kevin’s photos will be on display at the Lake House through September 30.
