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, organizations and universities around the Triangle region of North Carolina. However I'm available for national and international hire as well, as I travel regularly. Being able to create anywhere is truly amazing.  

How may I help!? I'd love to chat with you


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!
— Maria Stewart of TRANZACT | Manager of Digital Strategy
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 GRCVB | Creative Director

Phenomenal photography & videography! I have a lawn care and landscaping company and Keenan took my idea to another level with high quality equipment and professional expertise.

I had the opportunity to work with Keenan and his team during our annual conference and I was really impressed. They were punctual, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. They made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera and the pictures taken really reflected that. I have received several requests to have Keenan and his team return for our event next year.
