Koontz Photography | About

   If you are looking for someone who is personal, fun, creative, relaxed, experienced, honest, and in love with what they do.... that's me! I truly appreciate the opportunity to share in capturing moments in time with my clients. 
With parents in the event industry, I grew up with a camera in my hands. I joined yearbook in high school a grade before it was normally allowed. Event photography and portraiture just came naturally for me. I launched my business in 2006, at the age of 21, and since then I have enjoyed collaborating with other artists and vendors around the world. I am based in Central Florida but I am available to travel for weddings and events, and have my passport ready to go!

My style is a combination of photojournalism and traditional photography. My goal is to tell your story, so I want my clients to be able to relax and just enjoy the moment. I know how important photographs are, and my goal is to capture the best images that will keep you looking back, and reliving the memories for years to come! 

My work is currently on display in the Smithsonian's Museum on Mainstreet Water/Ways traveling exhibit. My work has been displayed in Museums such as Musée de l’Élysée in Switzerland, as well as locally in art events such as Nude Night Orlando/Tampa, and RAW Artists Orlando. My work has hung in galleries such as Art Affair, Abbey, Funky Trunk Treasures, Newfangled and several bed & breakfasts. 

I have been published internationally in The Steampunk User’s Manual, Illusion Magazine, BASE monthly, Photoshop Creative, Thrust Magazine, IST Magazine, Smithsonian Blog, Future Art Magazine, West Volusia Magazine, Volusia Style as well as in several newspapers.

I have had the privilege of working closely with several bands and singers such as Nova Rex and The Cog Is Dead.  My photos have been used in their album art, DVD covers, and in promotional materials, websites, blogs, and in magazines. My photography has been used on records such as “Come As You Are - A 20th Anniversary Tribute to Nirvana” as well as on book covers, TV shows, brochures and posters. 

I have photographed events such as Trash 2 Trends, Earthday Birthday, RAW artists, award ceremonies, company parties, festivals, and many live performances. I hope you take a look through my entire portfolio of work, and see how versatile I can be in working with a wide range of subjects and people. I make sure to stay current and relevant to my market by always reading, studying, and communicating with fellow artists. I currently am available to sub contract out my services to other photographers or companies to photograph weddings, events for corporations, art installments for local artists, and bands for local radio stations.

In addition to photography, I am also a traditional artist specializing in watercolors and body art. Check out my purchasable work here;
