Director, Producer, Writer
Always attracted to the fine arts, Kurt studied photography at the Rochester Institute of Technology, where he began developing an aesthetic informed by renaissance painting, modern art, and pop culture. Kurt spent his early career making images for advertising clients, with his full-service production company in upstate New York and office in Manhattan. Upon discovering the friendly environs of Chicago, he formed a commercial photography business here in the mid-nineties. After shooting several of his advertising clients’ weddings, Kurt found his style sought by many in the business. After several years on his own in Chicago, he turned his friendship with Michael Scarpelli into a successful partnership. Kurt’s mission is to create a legacy of talented artists and photographers that use their gifts to create positive change in the world.
