Kevin "Kevmo" Philbin
Create irresistible invitations with compelling and empowering imagery to inspire people into new possibilities in their body, their communities and their world.
My life focus has been fortunate by accomplishing some peak experiences. From crossing the Caribbean Sea by yacht, to backpacking Central America while getting my Spanish corrected, to taking divers into Hawaiian lava tubes, to climbing Mt. Rainier, I've sought to experience discovery by captaining teams of adventurers.
Working with a production team that shares a creative vision is a natural extension of adventure and discovery. Being on-location, on-set and on-point is where I'm delighted, curious and focused. I can lead as DP, I can follow as 1st AC; I meet any production challenge with elan. When things go off course, a client needs someone who doesn't fight the wind but adjusts the sails, getting the crew and treasures safe to port.
I live a short walk to the salt water of Puget Sound, and a short drive to the forests of the Cascade Mountains in Seattle, Washington with the greatest adventure of my life, my family: Laura, my wife and our sons, Seamus & Barrett.
