New Orleans Born and Raised
I am so in LOVE with my city when it comes to variety of backgrounds for my photography! I am starting an Etsy.com page for my New Orleans imagery printed on fine art paper. All of the above images were captured on Kodak Portra 400 film and a Mamiya medium format camera. Big shout out to Millers Lab for the wonderful scans. All of the images are straight out of the camera...no Photoshop required.
With so many unique colors in the Quarter I can find just about any background that will work with an outfit. How cool is the above image of Jessica against the door which is " just about matching colors of her dress"???
DID YOU KNOW YOU ONLY HAVE TO GO TO THE SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHER FOR THE YEAR BOOK IMAGE?
This is Natalie. Natalie chose downtown New Orleans for her casual senior portraits. Natalie will have images that truly showcase herself and her city. Natalie and GK created some amazing images together while enjoying the relaxing scenery. Natalie was a model for the day. Natalie has beautiful images to share. :)

I have taught all around the country and the best way to learn is hands on! I am a visual learner/teacher who loves small groups. I have over 2 decades of knowledge that is ready for the tapping. If you are ready for something unique, invigorating, artistic with the business savvy end of it all...I'm your guy.
Here is the deal. I am not sponsored by any products, labs or album companies. I am truly here to pull the inner artist out of you and present it to the world! I could do the whole PPA speaking tour thing but it just isn't who I am. Everyone deserves the opportunity to be the best. Competition is the key to any businesses success. They won't admit it but it's true. The bar is never raised until you are challenged!
Whether you have been in business like me over 20 years or you are just starting to learn this business...I am here.
Seminars for "Focused" are limited to 20 people per group event so the best experience is possible for each attendee. I have been to a ton of lectures and conventions with speakers that didn't teach me squat! Money out the door! Every once in a while I get a speaker who actually isn't out for himself/herself and I get the most production possible out of the event. Well that is my class. I'm here for you.
Extended Mentor sessions are possible for "Focused Premium" members. For 6 months premium members will have personal projects, Skype or Face time with me, critiques of their work so improvement is evident and most importantly you get access to me! I have over 20 years in the photography business so my knowledge is your answer to creative freedom.
Email me if you are interested in joining the "Focused" experience to firstname.lastname@example.org

Man oh man have I been busy ever since I left for my destination wedding in Colorado! After arriving home from Colorado the next day my job was in the New Orleans Superdome. The rest of the week was more corporate jobs, studio sessions and so much more following up until today's post. I am literally creating the time for this blog post today because I feel so guilty not being able to make a post in the last week or so. What I love about my 21 year career up until now, is the diversity I created within my brand. GK photography is highly known around New Orleans and I love every minute of it. For many years I specialized in weddings and through these events other opportunities always seem to arise. I love seeing my high school seniors become my wedding clients, then we photograph their kids and the cycle seems to repeat itself. I love my commercial work because the level of excellence which these companies expect is always top notch. I love pushing my knowledge as far as it can go.
To give you an idea of my diversity, let me share the kind of jobs I had just last week. Last week I had a corporate event which included a seven hour time lapse in the Superdome, before that was a destination wedding in Colorado, then we had a newborn baby in the studio, and in between all the sessions I have to process the images for sales sessions and lab fulfillments. Did I also mention that all of this work is within the realm of only two people, my wife Elizabeth and I. Elizabeth basically is all of the front of the house and I am all of the back of the house. She answers the phones, schedules clients, follows up with emails and delivers outstanding customer service.
I love the diversity in my business because I am literally never bored! Any job that comes to our business I am proud to say I am very good at accomplishing. I never really wanted to only specialize in one field such as weddings or just children portraiture. My soul needs to constantly create and I am proud to say, that is exactly what exists in my life today. I think one of the most fun aspects of my career is learning how to create beautiful food photography. How can you not love the diverse styles of food we have here in New Orleans? As you follow my blog I will weekly show you my diverse life and imagery that is created from it. Today we have a child session and two sales sessions from family portraits we did on location. So as you follow me on Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and Facebook… Just know that those posts get squeezed in between all the other aspects of our day. I cannot wait to see what tomorrow brings me. :)
I love my job. I love my diverse life. I love my family. To me this is the definition of "Living the Dream." -GK
Halloween night at 10 pm we announced our winner. All of the names of people who participated went into a pumpkin and we drew for a winner. The lucky winner is Rayne Torry. I remember photographing Rayne when she was only 6 months old and now she is a high school senior. The Instax printer is a great way to get those images on your phone out into the real world!
