Curiosity, compassion and creativity have driven Bruce Kinsey to pursue his passion for photography since childhood.
From Eastman Kodak Brownie camera prints to hi resolution digital imagery, Kinsey has spent nearly four decades chasing perfection.
“Ever since I can remember, I’ve always been fascinated with pictures,” said Kinsey, whose business Bruce P. Kinsey Photography’s motto is “fine photography with a personal touch.”
From candid shots of subjects caught unaware to carefully crafted business or family portraits made to look effortless, Kinsey’s approach is key to customer satisfaction.
“In 1979, I got my first single lens reflex Camera. A Minolta X-d 5,” Kinsey reflected. At the time, that state-of-the-art tool opened up a brave new world for Kinsey. He took the camera, rolls of film and began taking pictures of everything in sight.
“It’s something I thought I could make money,” Kinsey said of his passion; then he got serious. A photography correspondence course at The New York Institute of Photography opened more doors, along with gigs as a model portfolio photographer.
Kinsey enjoys seeing people through the camera’s lens.
“I used Bruce’s talents to do a head shot for my website and business cards,” said Vicky McClatchy. McClatchy is a mortgage loan originator with First Choice Loan Services, Inc., A Berkshire Bank Company in Southampton.
Kinsey’s work includes corporate portraits and events, individual and family portraits, birthday, anniversary, engagement and wedding photos, among others. Kinsey enjoys travel and is happy to go on location to complete an assignment.
McClatchy said Kinsey advised her about bringing different colors to see in which outfits what she would photography best. The sitting was meticulously curated with more than 75 shots being taken in all. “I highly recommend Bruce…his passion for his work says it all,” McClatchy said.
Naturally friendly and sociable, Kinsey’s nature makes him a pro at coaxing the camera shy and capturing them at their best. “A lot of people don’t like to have their picture taken. If you can just find a way to (showcase) their personality, it comes across through the picture,” he explained.
While not exactly camera shy McClatchy isn’t at home as the subject of a photo shoot; however, Kinsey quickly put her at ease.
“He was very professional but also very friendly so I would relax,” McClatchy said.
Chelsea Jack needed a photographer for an event, a 5-mile run through Lansdale to benefit Community Health and Youth Foundation’s summer business youth camp. Kinsey proved a perfect fit to cover the event.
“I met Bruce through Upper Bucks Chamber of Commerce,” said Jack, spokeswoman for The Physical Therapy & Wellness Institute. “Bruce donated his time on a Saturday and the pictures he captured brought tears to our eyes,” she said.
From fathers and daughters crossing the finish line together while holding hands to casual event candid shots, “Bruce captured the moment when you think no one is looking. Bruce will go out of his way. He’s just good,” Jack said.
