There has been much debate and hurt feelings but its finally here and on the streets. The RVA Photo Issue is live and ready to be read in its entirety. Thank you to all the talented people that let us use their work.

We have put together a collection of the best locally grown photo work online and in the issue.

In print, we have interviews with punk/metal photographer Tony Lynch, skateboard documentarian Nick Ghobashi, and nightlife voyeur Nate “Igor” Smith. A Mike Wood spread from his Modern Cowboys set and a round table discussion with photographers Ken Howard, Ian Graham, David Kenedy, + Cameron Lewis on what it takes to be a photographer in RVA. Great commentary on that stuff from some of the most opinionated people I know.

Plus, online interviews and images by award winning photographer Scott Elmquist, our own black and white image maker PJ Sykes, Karen Seifert, Joseph Talsman, Michael Otley, Rebecca Ward, and Sylvia Plachy on RVAMAG.COM.

You can pick it up at these fine establishments around town.

I created Richmond, Virginia’s culture publication RVA Magazine and brought the first Richmond Mural Project to town. Designed the first brand for the Richmond’s First Fridays Artwalk and promoted the citywide “RVA” brand before the city adopted it as the official moniker. I threw a bunch of parties. Printed a lot of magazines. Met so many fantastic people in the process. Professional work:

Kevin Smith Took Us to Church At The National
