After dabbling in Filmmaking, Kevin Downey began his real
photographic career shooting in caves and caverns for occasional magazine and
book projects. Using homemade lighting devices and very basic materials his results
evolved to become well regarded and award winning. Assignments became more diverse
as his lighting techniques were seen as innovative and his perspectives different.
Increasing fascinated with light, image manipulation and finding creative outlets,
Kevin studied at and assisted in several top commercial studios. Kevin also spent
several years as owner/operator of Com Color Photographics and Imaging, a well
respected commercial photo lab based in Springfield, Massachusetts. From that
background Kevin refined his direction concentrating on the creative challenges
for a very diverse clientele.
As the "digital revolution" brought new tools to
Photographic Arts he began a long process of serious study, experimentation and
development. Increasingly working with complex commercial projects Kevin's studio
began to expand into diverse aspects of photographic services, eventually becoming
Digital Studios. A small studio by some standards, the Lascaux team provides
creative service and quality rarely found outside major cities, and works comfortably
with small firms and major corporate clients. The phrase "providing the fine
art of commercial imaging" is the core of the studios' approach.
