Who We Are
Kevin d. liles
A native Georgian who began his career as a reporter, Kevin D. Liles is an independent documentary and commercial photographer based in Atlanta.
Kevin has photographed hundreds of assignments for national outlets such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, National Public Radio, and Sports Illustrated. He also serves as the official team photographer for the Atlanta Braves.
Much of Kevin's work explores Southern culture, particularly at the margins of religion, sports, and politics — arenas where so many of our differences (and similarities) converge.

My name is Katlynn Hignite and I am the new intern for ATL Photo Night. I am a photographer and cinematographer (well, at least I am trying to be) with a background in digital media. I am currently a shoot production intern at Turner Broadcasting as well, trying to learn as much as I can about this amazing industry. I am so excited for this opportunity and I am looking forward to seeing you all at future events.
