Award-winning photographer and owner Kyle Hughes completed an intensive education program at one of the most prestigious photography schools in the United States, the Hallmark Institute of Photography in Turner Falls, Massachusetts in 2002. He worked with a high volume photography company for two years in Salisbury, Md., and Charleston, S.C. The next few years brought him back to Ocean City, as an apprentice for a local master portrait photographer, learning the business of photography before opening his own private studio in 2004.
After 10 years of shooting out of his backyard studio, Kyle has recently expanded his indoor space and is now located in the Decatur Business Center in West Ocean City. The Studio Gallery contains six rooms including a comfortable lounge for conceptualizing your ideas, a digital viewing room and several private shooting rooms for portraits.
In addition to studio portraits, Kyle’s passion lies in outdoor photography and will travel anywhere in the world to photograph your family or special event.
Looking to capture the right image to advertise your business? Kyle has worked with Atlantic General Hospital, Sysco, as well as numerous hotels and restaurants all over the eastern shore. He has acquired a reputation for aerial city landscapes, architectural commercial photos, and pristine food images.
Kyle spends a lot of his free time giving back to the community, judging local photography contests, donating time and services to local charities and benefits, and helping with team sports at the Ocean City’s Northside Park and Recreation Center. He is the center’s official photographer. He is a member of the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce, as well as a member of a local and national professional photographers’ associations. He is also the official photographer for the tourist attraction guidebooks, Inside Ocean City and Inside Salisbury which are featured in most of the leading hotels in the area.
He loves photography and how it makes his clients feel.
