Presentation: “The “Calling” of Portraiture”
Kevin will share the trials and adventures in building his business and will discuss the challenges of a high-end portrait studio in San Antonio. He will share his philosophy for excellence, the need for perseverance and the need to find one’s niche and run one’s own race.
About Kevin G Saunders:
Kevin Saunders has lived an extremely colorful life which has enabled him to “see”. This concept is extremely important in portraiture. While Yousuf Karsh could spend days with a client, Kevin has to be able to size them up in an hour and create a legacy portrait that sells for up to tens of thousands of dollars.
Kevin’s dad was a gifted amateur and in the 1960’s, his dad would send him out with a Leica M3 and point to a scene and say, “What’s the aperture and shutter speed?” The Leica didn’t have a meter and Kevin had to learn to look at the light at a very young age. He didn’t pursue photography but did many different careers, as well as graduating with a BA in Biology, Pre Med, from Westminster College in Fulton MO. His love of anatomy started a 40 year study that has served him well in his current role as a portrait artist.
