Since moving to River, Kent UK this past October, one of the county’s centerpieces that I’d yet to take in was the storied coastal town of Folkestone. No longer a simple ferry port, Folkestone is also home to the aptly named Creative Quarter, the gorgeous Lower Leas Coastal Park, is cradled by the unspoiled and breathtaking Kent Downs, and enjoys the company of historic gems such as Hythe, Sandgate, and Romney Marsh.I took the opportunity this past Saturday to check out the Old High Street and Creative Foundation‘s initiatives to see what all the fuss was about. After a few hours spent trundling about, it was easy to see why Folkestone occupies such a treasured place in so many people’s hearts.
I hope I’ve given you plenty of reasons to check out beautiful Folkestone and it’s culturally rich surrounding areas. Whether it’s a day out with the family or you, your camera/canvas and a creative eye, Folkestone and it’s surrounding areas are sure to provide fun, freedom and a wonderfully memorable experience.
Kevan Smith I’m a commercial photographer, based in Kent and I specialise in creating dynamic, eye-catching images for my clients.
My images are created to add value to every message conveyed across the spectrum of digital and offline platforms alike, including websites, brochures, blogs, social media channels, case studies and any other medium as required.
My clients range from BAFTA award winners, multi-national building firms, television personalities and heads of state to local businesses, respected artists and ambitious entrepreneurs.
I was born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas (U.S.A.), and after a stint as a lab technician followed by time out to travel, I began a career as a production rigger, working primarily in television and film. This experience allowed me to become accustomed to pressurised working environments and a demanding clientele!
In 2011, I began studying at the London Film Academy, which eventually led to me devoting my time and training to becoming a commercial photographer.
