KC Armstrong joins the podcast for this episode to talk about growing up in Alberta in the shadows of the Canadian Rockies, establishing himself as a sought after photographer in Toronto, and slowly breaking into the LA scene as a celebrity shooter. KC's life was that of the normal 70s/80s suburban kid. Getting lost on skateboards and BMX bikes, and venturing into the mountains to snowboard whenever he got the chance. But the world of punk rock, and the creative sub culture it bought with it, would soon change his outlook on life and send him in a trajectory of playing in bands and finally finding a true passion for photography. After several years of working at a grocery store after high school, and wondering what would be next in his life, KC decided to enroll at the Alberta College of Art and Design and began carving out a path that would lead him to a move to Toronto and the beginnings of a commercial photography client base. Over the years KC has worked with everyone from top professional athletes, to celebrities, to personal projects like his current "Skate Legends" series that showcases beautiful portraits of very familiar faces from the world of skateboarding. During our conversation we get the chance to explore where he thinks the current state of the photography business is headed, the trials of breaking into the small world of LA celebrity shooters, spreading the word to others to not give away your copyrights, and always raising the bar on your future ambitions.
