Photographer Cam Kirk creates space and resources for young creatives

When Cam Kirk first picked up a camera as a Morehouse student in 2007, he didn’t see many Black photographers in the field, so he decided to carve out his own path and create Cam Kirk Studios. He has photographed and produced for many hip-hop and rap artists, from 2 Chainz to Gucci Mane. His studio also offers space for young creatives to better their skills. On Sunday, May 15, Kirk is hosting a photography tour, which is part of a community cleanup. He joined “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes via Zoom to talk more about his studio and its efforts to support local creatives and their larger community.

Cam Kirk Turned His Love for Capturing Images Into a Thriving Creative Community

Few understand the law of visualization: the idea that in order to become something, you must first see it. For photographer Cam Kirk, it’s the reason he picked up a camera in the first place — seeing is believing. As a freshman at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Kirk’s passions for photography and videography revealed themselves. He realized he wanted to capture people who looked like him and to make waves in the creative realm in a more intimate fashion. But at the time, 2007 in Atlanta, photography didn’t seem like a realistic option, especially for Black photographers operating in a predominantly white industry. That was all the motivation Kirk needed to carve out a new space in the game, taking his unique point of view, cultural touch points and love of art and turning them into a real community. By capturing authentic and unapologetically Black imagery, Kirk used his camera lens to forge a path ahead for other creatives.
