I ❤️ family portrait sessions! Your children were full of energy, so naturally. I was ready to bring my “A” game. It was a pleasure to photograph all of you. I look forward to your next trip to our area. Thanks for introducing me to your local relatives too. That is the ultimate compliment for a photographer!

My son needed graduation pictures taken since he only got his masters by a zoom meeting. I found kevin on this app. He responded quickly and gave me the pictures that I needed for a reasonable price. My son doesnt like getting professional pictures made yet he had nothing but good things to say about kevin. The pictures were great!!Oct 14, 2020VerifiedKevin at Swishkraft Media's reply
I’m so thankful to have the privilege of meeting and collaborating with your son on these portraits. I think they are the best series of studio images that I’ve done. Best wishes to both of you!
I absolutely loved the the pictures Mr.Kibble took of me with my horses! He was so encouraging throughout the whole process, and walked me through every step! It was a very enjoyable experience:)Sep 30, 2020VerifiedKevin at Swishkraft Media's reply
You were the perfect subject for me and my cameras. Of course we had a great supporting cast—your boyfriend, your Mom, my wife and your HORSES! I couldn’t have asked for a better team. Thanks for picking me to photograph your Senior Portraits.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I’m not interested in becoming rich. I am first and foremost an artist. I simply make sure that my expenses are covered and that I’m able to pay all of my Thumbtack fees, government taxes, insurance and equipment updates. I do provide discounts for military veterans and family referrals from previous clients. I do add a destination fee of $15 when traveling to your location if it is over 55 miles from Ooltewah, TN and $25 if your location takes me over 85 miles. It is important to invest in a quality experience. As effective as the app on a smartphone can be, enduring memories are best with the skills of a professional.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Everything worth doing well begins with a good conversation. Our introduction opens the dialogue which quickly reveals more than time or location. It also unveils a story and theme. Further exploration and discovery soon follow. I so enjoy the creative endeavor with willing and enthusiastic participants. I’m pleased to say that many of my first time clients often become friends.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Neal Stevens opened my very first class in Photography during my first year of college. That was more than a little while ago. Film has yielded the platform to the digital pixel. I have absorbed everything that I can from a host of classes, seminars, publications plus practice, practice, practice!
