About the speaker
Originally from Garden City, KS, Travis Young is a commercial photographer based in Kansas City, working for brands such as Adidas, Urban Outfitters, Tropicana, Rossville Union, and others. Off the clock he leaves his digital cameras at home and photographs exclusively with film cameras which help keep him grounded in this thing Travis continues to understand as his own life. In his words, “analogue photography continually prods at my emotions and provides me the ability to form lasting memories otherwise missed.”
