About me:

My name is Kevin Byers. I'm a freelance photographer out of the Merrimack Valley. I gained an appreciation for art at a very early age with a passion for drawing and coloring and my family helped foster that appreciation into a love. It started with drawing and coloring with a little bit of snapshooting on the Kodak Kids Camera that my father bought on a trip to Disney World when I was about the age of four. Through my early and teen years I focused on illustration, then design and music. After highschool I joined and toured with a band and got my degree in graphic design with a study in traditional black and white photograhy. I bought my first DSLR in 2012 so I, as a snowboarder, could start making a documentary about the ski mountains of New England, but have had to place that project on hold due to lack of interest. Since I had the camera I started carrying it with me and shooting what I could find, and that leads me to where we are today!
When I'm not out shooting you can typically find me playing with my band, out snowboarding, or hiking and exploring and there's a pretty good chance I'll have my cameras with me while doing any of those things.
