Cleveland Series

The Cleveland Series: Meet Mc Kevis

Cleveland! Wow! Prior to late 2015, I had never been to Cleveland. As a photographer, I’ve been to a lot of places but Cleveland hadn’t made that list. The irony of that is that I’ve known a Cleveland resident for over almost ten years and no…. It isn’t Machine Gun Kelly. After waiting for what felt like forever, I finally stepped foot into The Land. I loved it so much that I had to turn it into a series. With the inspiration of my very own “Cleveland photography tour guide,” I’ll be taking trips back over there a couple times a year on a search for some inspiring vibes.

With all that being said,

Meet Kevin

Cleveland’s Very Own

I’ve known Kevin, who is known to most by his moniker MC Kevis for far too long. To put a real number on it would be saying the least. We’ve been friends since MySpace was a “thing” and were always constantly getting grounded for long distance phone conversations that showed up on the landline bill for our grand/parents. Needless to say, I’ve known him forever.

Kevin is the embodiment of the city of Cleveland. Hard-working, colorful, and a little rambunctious; he travels the city proudly and even has a few Cleveland tattoos of his own.

I don’t want to give it all away so…

You need to stay tuned because The Cleveland series is coming soon, and you’re going to get a first look at some of the spots in The Land. Plus, you’ll get to see more of Kevin. Our tour guide has had a lot up his sleeve, including an abandoned underground wasteland and a daddy daughter date that will bring you to tears.

Coming up next in the Cleveland Series:

You’ve heard of concrete jungle.. but have you ever explored one? Watch as Kevin, Ray, and I make our way into the underbelly of Cleveland.
