Today we’d like to introduce you to Pascal Kinsey.
Hi Pascal, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
Since I was 15, I knew that I wanted to be a photographer. I’ve always loved and respected the artistry of the craft. When I was in high school, I took photography classes and knew that this was it. When I was 18 (two months after I graduated high school) my mother passed away. I was lost, and I had zero clue of how to pick myself up. During my grieving time, I revisited the idea of being a photographer, I vividly remember texting my best friend with my mind made up that I was going to be a photographer.
From that day on, I hid the fact that I was a photographer for about a year, just working on it and finding my style. I can say that the artistry was there, I just didn’t know how to make it a business. I had to catch up on that end. In 2017, I wrote a personal blog titled ‘What A Year.’ 2017 was the year that I discovered some of my capabilities throughout the amazing opportunities that I’m forever grateful for. 2018 was a year of learning and understanding the magnitude of the vision that I have – no pun intended, lol. In the year of 2019, I elevated. I had the ideas, the artistry and now the knowledge to make it happen all I had to do was combine them. I released my most notable piece of art on August 16th, 2019 the ‘Royal Crown’ a photo print of a Kansas City Royals hat floating above Union Station – that piece in itself is the epiphany of who I am and what my vision is. I wanted to represent Kansas City in a way that has never been done before.
2020, most of the year was spent in quarantine. However, a lot of my great ideas came during that time. I started my merchandise line called ‘Kamera Crew’ – a series of crew tee shirts, I released my ‘Always Have A Vision’ coffee mugs, and I added a sequel to the ‘Royal Crown’ which is ‘Forever KC’ a photo print of a Kansas City Chiefs helmet floating above Union Station.
Currently, in 2021 I am continuing to carry the momentum of the ScalesVision brand, more Kamera Crew shirts coming soon as well as more creative photo prints.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It hasn’t been a smooth road for me, at first I struggled with the self-confidence to put my work out there, wanting to be the best from the beginning. It’s a lot of pressure when you do that. Just do the best you can at the time and embrace that there is always room to grow and get better.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I’m a photographer specializing in what I would call lifestyle photography (cool stuff) I shoot weddings and things all the way to wall art for someone’s home/office.
I’m probably most known for my portrait work, that’s the solid foundation of my clientele.
I’m most proud of my ‘Royal KC’ photo. It’s the first time that I executed the concept through and through.
If we knew you growing up, how would we have described you?
Growing up, I was a pretty normal kid. I was always watched sports, hung out with my family and friends, a pretty average student. I can say that I’ve always had this shyness about me, I feel like I am just now coming out of my shell due to my talent.
