Kevin Weinstein combines the worlds of photojournalism and artistic photography to capture memories, moods, split-second moments, and momentous events.
He’s been doing it since the darkroom ages. The instructions he was taught back then for developing photos has stuck with him: “If it is too light, add time; if it is too dark, take away time.” But in the years since, as film gave way to digital, Kevin has learned that time cannot be added or subtracted—only seized or lost. His art as a documentarian, storyteller and photographer is all about seizing the moment, and the meaning within that moment. Kevin is a master at stripping away the nonessential and capturing the essence of a person, place or point in time. The results: emotive portraits and candids, lively magazine spreads, and images that command attention amid the visual clutter that defines the digital age.
Before founding Kevin Weinstein Photography in 2001, Kevin spent 12 years in newspaper and magazine journalism. On the newspaper side, he worked for the Sun (Bremerton, Washington), the Memphis Commercial Appeal, the Albuquerque Tribune, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Oakland Tribune, and the Sun in Illinois. His magazine credits include US Weekly, People, Hollywood Reporter and Mother Jones. Celebrity subjects include Quentin Tarantino, Samuel L. Jackson, Eva Longoria, Mario Lopez, Stacy Keibler, Smeezingtons producer Ari Levine, and Christoph Waltz, among others.
Through Kevin Weinstein Photography, Kevin became a sought-after event photographer, and as his reputation and referrals spread beyond the Chicago market, he went on to shoot high-profile private parties and special events in Los Angeles, New York, and exotic and cosmopolitan destinations around the globe. Kevin Weinstein Photography has since come full circle, bringing Kevin back to his roots as an editorial and street photographer.
