Hello there, I'm Keenan. Thank you for coming to take a look around. It brings me joy to be able to showcase the different facets of my work. 

Usually, I'm spending my time fulfilling contracted work for various businesses and organizations around the Triangle region of North Carolina. However I'm available for national and international hire as well, as I travel regularly.

So how may I help? I'd love to chat with you so shoot me a message. I look forward to hearing from you and aspire to be of service.

I live to inspire and to be inspired.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Keenan on a shoot for a corporate project. The shoot included both video and still photography. Throughout the project I was extremely impressed with Keenan’s attention to detail, creativity and quick turnarounds. He was wonderful to work with and made the project a complete success. Highly recommend!

Keenan interned within the marketing department at the Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitors Bureau. He spent about eight weeks criss-crossing the county, collecting photos of visitor attractions and points of interest. He not only submitted about 1500 photos that I continue to use on a regular basis, but he was respectful, took direction well and is a generally great guy.
— Karen DeSollar of Greater Raleigh Convention & Visitors Bureau | Creative Director
Working with Keenan Hairston was a wonderful experience. He was a true professional before the event, taking the time to find out what our organization hoped to capture in photos. He was extremely flexible when changes came up on-site, taking the initiative to make sure that he got the shots that we requested. The end result, the photos, were high quality and arrived in a very timely manner. He has great energy and it reflects in his work!
