Kirk fell in love with photography at the ripe age of 16, and he’s been practicing ever since. You might see Kirk around town shooting, or collaborating with his brothers at their creative media company, Brothers and Craft. Either way, Kirk is a very busy guy and we are lucky to have him on our team.
We caught up with Kirk for a quick Q&A:
What do you like most about being a photographer?
I’m a people person, so it’s always fun meeting and getting to know new people on shoots.
Tell me about your favorite shooting location in the Charleston area.
This may be a cliche answer, but the whole south of Broad neighborhood is unreal. I love the worn walls and architecture, and no matter how many times I’ve shot there, I always seem to find a new street or scene.
Can you share a photo that you have taken that you think perfectly captures the city of Charleston?
This a shot I took of my brother, Clay, on Johns Island. It represents the rural side of Charleston, the side that doesn’t get much press, but is still important. Johns Island is the host to century old farms that to this day are still in operation and supply produce and goods to the local restaurants. This picture to me demonstrates optimism, chasing after new roads, and new opportunities.
We love the men’s lifestyle brand/ creative agency, Brothers and Craft that you have created with your brothers. What are your biggest sources of inspiration for creating content for your blog?
Growing up, our mom taught us the art of making things with your hands. It involved an occasional wreath, but she taught us how to sew and tailor our clothes. This experience grew our appreciation for quality products, and craftsman in general. Our inspiration for the blog stems from these kind of people. People with a wonderful skill, but even more than that, people who have an equally wonderful wonderful heart.
Contact the concierge team to set up 3 or 5 hour photography tour, or a 1-on-1 lesson with Kirk. We can’t wait to get out there and start shooting!
