Adam and Kev Photography is the heart of the collaborating partnership of Adam Schelle and Kev Holloway. The business is how they first came together to collaborate, and they continue to do so by making imagery for their clients.
In addition to their photographic work, they develop and execute creative projects, often involving other people and other forms of media. Generally these are based around an exploration of connecting with other people and revealing truths. Here a few of their projects:
So It Is: Vancouver is a portrait series that tells the story of Vancouverites, and their unique part of the world. The project is about to launch with a Kickstarter campaign set to finance the printing of 2000 copies of a big-ass coffee table book, along with a few initiatives designed to encourage connection in the city of Vancouver, BC.
STRONG was a photographic series created to work with residents of Vancouver's Downtown East Side. For over two years free monthly portrait sessions were offered to any DTES residents interested in having their picture taken. Our goal was to connect with each subject, and to create some strong and authentic portraits of them.
Playground.is is a live music event series that Adam & Kev co-founded and co-produce. Each event is set in a unique location, one that is not a typical music venue. We then add an artist and a group of people from the general public. The band then teach the audience how to play their parts, rehearse, and then record the song and a music video - all in one night. The result is a unique and fully interactive event with accompanying music videos and documentary pieces.
