My friend and very talented designer from The Circus, Bryan Voliton, designed the logo for me as I was about to graduate in 2003. His concept behind it played off me being a country boy -- my nickname those days at school was "Kountry Keith" -- country with a "K". The logo itself is an abstract camera with a "K" in the lens -- designed to look like a brand you would see on cattle. Well, now it's a brand on me. I had Shay Cannon who owns Liberty Tattoo here in Atlanta do it for me. I met Shay and the other guys that worked at his recently opened tattoo shop back when I was doing a school project in 4th quarter -- "People on Ponce". I met some really cool and interesting people through that project, and Shay was one of them. I have a huge amount of respect for tattoo artist and some of the work they do. I love just watching them work, and have avoided getting any tattoo's up till now out of fear of becoming addicted to them. I have a feeling this one will not be my last. The shot above is a self-portrait of me, branded with a symbol of what I will always be -- a photographer.
