On most weekends you can find Kurt capturing weddings and portrait sessions for discerning clients from around the world. His clean, sleek style is a combination of his award-winning photojournalism background (NYT, GETTY IMAGES) and his ability to see and use light in a creative, artistic way.
Kurt's approach: to artistically capture how you felt at that special moment in time.
Based in Prague, Kurt regularly works throughout Europe and was chosen as the wedding photographer for the Getty wedding in Rome as well as a member of President Harmid Karzai's family during their wedding in Italy. In addition to various VIP weddings, Kurt was also the chosen photographer for no less than 6 professional wedding photographers from the US, UK, Ireland, and Spain.
Though he enjoys the large weddings, Kurt is actively pursuing couples who desire to have an intimate experience where in addition to having their weddings captured, they also have a day and or night time portrait session to create a body of work that will both impress and wow their family & friends. This type of session (reportage and a mixture of art directed night time portraits) is not for everyone but for those who invest in this style – they are never let down.
Kurt is a 2 x 1st Place winner in The Best of Photojournalism for his magazine & news reporting.
He has also won many other international prizes for his reportage & documentary work.
His work has been internationally exhibited in: New York City, London, Prague, and his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.
