With each new artist in the Tamron Kitchen, the comparison to fine dining and your favorite cuisines gets a little stronger. “Chef” Kyle Garay joins us on Tamron Recipes this month. Again, like a great chef, he uses different ingredients to create each image.

The question asked of each Tamron Chef is, “Can you send us a couple of your most favorite images to share and talk about?” Both images were captured with the Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 lens. And like so many artists, it’s hard to define Kyle’s favorite specialty. But there is an underlying theme to every click of the shutter, which he explained on his About page;

At the end of 2020, I decided to take the leap and go full-time with photography. I had quit my career of almost 10 years to pursue my dream of making a living being a professional photographer. By no means was it an easy decision. I would stay up all night thinking what a stupid idea it was, but nonetheless, I kept pushing. I now work full-time as a professional product/brand photographer. I work with a multitude of companies to help them showcase their products through the art of visual storytelling. Being able to do what I love and take that passion to help clients is an incredible feeling.

There were two different clients involved in these images. The top photo of the group celebrating what might have been a touchdown was captured for a hotel chain. They wanted a lifestyle image related to the rooms they offer groups like this. The client for the other photo was Kyle himself. I love that Kyle was just out with his camera shooting for his own pleasure, something many artists often forget about.​

One of the fun aspects of this industry is following the careers of relatively new artists. Kyle launched his business into photography just three years ago, but I’ll match his passion and love for the craft with any seasoned veteran. Click on either of his two images in today’s post and put him on your radar. Follow him on Instagram too. It’s going to be fun to watch his career continue to grow.
