Kevin N. GarrettDirector of Strategic Partnerships
and Business Development
I’ve always been a storyteller – sometimes with the written word and sometimes with a camera. I love to highlight what makes people and places special. My passion is making connections that others might miss. My first job in publishing was with the hit factory House of Gold Music in Nashville, Tennessee, as a songplugger working with 25 staff songwriters to get their songs placed on recording projects.
My work as an advertising and lifestyle photographer has won awards for clients that include: Audi, Google, The Coca-Cola Company, McDonald’s, Nike, Westin, The Ritz-Carlton Company, the states of Georgia and New Mexico, Norwegian Cruise Lines, The Home Depot, Stihl, and Georgia-Pacific. I provided 60 original images for My Orange Duffel Bag: A Journey to Radical Change, which won two international awards for Best Book Design out of 4,000+ entries and 14 countries. I’ve shot book and CD covers and authors’ and musicians’ portraits, and contributed to Game: The Chef’s Field to Table Cookbook.
As a travel writer and photographer, my work has appeared in Condé Nast Traveler, Delta Sky, Town and Country, Forbes, Vogue, Outside, Boulevard, Entrepreneur, Inc., Atlanta Magazine, Coastal Living, Islands, Atlanta, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and Virtuoso Life, among others. I co-authored several guidebooks, including Caribbean for Dummies and Rum & Reggae. My fine art photography has been shown in galleries in New York City, Atlanta and Nashville, and my work hangs in luxury resorts and hotels around the world. I am working on a forthcoming fine art photography book. I co-authored Spellbound Under the Spanish Moss: A Southern Tale of Magic. Both projects are with Connor Judson Garrett.
