Finally, submitted a few new images from a shoot this summer. Will add a few more in the coming days.

My life has been overfull with obligations to work and volunteer activities here in Key West. So, not a lot of photography over the past two years. I hope to change that early next year.

Michael Kilgore
Artist
United States
I've been an avid photographer since my college days in the 60s and 70s though the interest back then was mostly architectural. Among (many)other things, I've worked as a photojournalist through which I developed an appreciation and skill for capturing "a moment" which tells a story.

My specific interest in male figurative work became serious in the early 90s when I owned a gallery in Key West called "Bodyscapes", one of the few galleries in the country at the time which would feature fine art imagery of the male form. Through the gallery I met and represented some of the finest photographers of the genre in the United States. And, subsequently, thought "if they can do it, why can't I?"

Fifteen years later, practicing my craft, I'm finally arriving at a style that's uniquely my own, gaining some recognition with several one-person shows and building a new career as a photographer. Though what goes around comes around...most of the paid work is as an architectural and interiors photographer. My passion, however, is the male figurative work. It's my intent that can become part of the new career as well.

Current Residence: Key West, FL

Your series with Nick is wonderful. He is a very handsome model and looks right at home in the cabin in the woods.
