Folkestone Coastal 10K May 28, 2017

This morning I had the chance to capture a few highlights from this year’s Folkestone Coastal 10K, sponsored by some of the prominent businesses and organizations of the Folkestone and greater Shepway areas.

Ray Johnson of Indepent Insurance Services along with organizers and marshals from the Ghurka Memorial Fund. Last year’s event raised over £40,000 for good causes and they are set to beat that this year.

This was my first-time capturing the phenomenal landscaping of the gorgeous Lower Leas Coastal Park. Even on a grayish morning, it’s easy to appreciate the beautiful gardens along the coastline.

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. Whether you have a specific project in mind or you’re looking for a complete brand identity overhaul, I’d love to hear from you. You can email me at kevan@smithstudios.co.uk or give me a call on +44 77 6666 1253.
