This month we will be featuring photography by Kyle Panis (http://www.kylepanis.com/).

About Kyle:

When I was 14 years old, I used to help my father with his photography work as an assistant at shoots. I learned about the basics of lighting, client interaction, and digital photo editing before my first years in high school. On these jobs we were usually covering people in some fashion - family photos, senior photos, corporate profiles, ect.

Through my first few years of high school I supported myself with jobs as a youth sports referee, a batting cage attendant, and a Boston Market employee. At the same time, from 2012-2014, my father and I were contracted by Martha Stewart Magazine to produce 2-4 video profiles (a year) for the American Made project. We flew to 10 or so American cities over the course of those three years, and we're tasked to capture an American artisan in each city - highlighting their craft, their environment, and their mission. This experience gave me my first look into professional digital media production. From waking up early to scout locations and draft a shot list to producing a video interview of a craftsmen, these specific projects impacted my creative process of digital media immensely, and enlightened me to the overall need for collaboration in a creative task.

In my last year of high school I began to slowly market myself as a photographer/videographer and began doing independent work. I shot my first paid senior photos, and began dabbling in video work for a local music collective named Splyt. I traveled all around Colorado and to Utah to document road trips and concerts, the most namely being a concert with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

Before my freshman year of College, I was expecting photography to slowly leave my life as I began focusing on Business or Computer Sciences, but I was completely wrong. As I found my own flaws with the secondary American education system, I began to use Photography as an outlet of expression. I felt lost in the masses of humans going to class or the three hundred person lecture halls. I felt like I lost my voice, and I wanted to find it again.

So I took to the roads.
