ABOUT THE ART
All prints are uploaded to ImageKind using the original, high quality files. The RAW file formats have been saved and uploaded as TIFF images, but the pictures on display on the website are compressed-down JPGs for quick loading time. Rest assured, the print quality and clarity will come from the original TIFF images, which will be superior quality to the way the images look on the website.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
I was born and raised in Chicago's suburbia, where my photographic-artist grandfather Ben Lavitt ran the largest photo development lab in the mid-west for his career (Gamma Photo). All the walls in his house were completely covered in framed photos, and his talent and passion was transferred to my father, and my sister and I.
I would say, the most fun I've had in my photographic art career, is when I'm rolling around in the sand capturing a friend creating a silhouette with a sunset. There's something magical about the sun setting over the west coast, and given the amount of talent I've met in Los Angeles these last few years here, there's always someone to capture a neat concept with.
If you are interested in being in front of my camera and creating art together, please reach out. If you're interested in purchasing art, either as print, canvas, or framed, the proceeds go to paying down my student loans! Thank you for visiting; many more are on the way!
