• Keith has been working in photography for 20 years. After receiving his formal training at Indiana University’s Herron School of Art and Design, in Indianapolis, he later went on to graduate with Honors from Chicago's Colombia College (1999), where he received his BA in photography.
  • At Columbia, Keith evolved his technique and composition, developing his eye for color and light and learning to manipulate them in new and innovative ways. It is Keith’s sincere desire to show the subtle, yet powerful impact light can have on our surroundings, through experiments with light saturation and unique exposure techniques.
  • Keith’s work has been viewed in a number of galleries for solo and group shows, including Los Manos Gallery in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood and the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago. His photographs have been published in both magazines and newspapers. His corporate collectors include Westin Hotels International, the Illinois Institute of Art, and Nookie’s Tree Restaurant. In addition, his images have graced the album cover of recording artist, Matt Clark, and can be seen in the short film “Crush,” by Phillip Bartel.
  • Keith currently resides in Chicago, IL. He is a practicing Buddhist who adheres strongly to the principle of mindfulness in all we do.
