Kyle Pompey, owner of Nice Shot Media, LLC considers himself an “organic photojournalist.” Whether collaborating in his studio or documenting throughout his travels, Kyle avoids posed or planned pictures. Instead, he perceives the energy of his subject, which he allows to define the story of the moment. Breaking the mold of perceptions is the goal of his debut photography book “Perspective: Baltimore.” Designed to promote freethinking – every image will deliver a different narrative from the reader.
A Baltimore native, Kyle is featured in a variety of publications such as Ebony Magazine, The Huffington Post, GQ, Essence, Japan Magazine, and The Baltimore Sun Dark Room. His images are used in a collection of artistic works such as Tariq Toure’s “Black Seeds: The Poetry and Reflections of Tariq Toure” and Aaron Maybin’s “Art Activism.” He has curated exhibits at John Hopkins University, featured in the Reginald F. Lewis Museum’s “Reflections of Baltimore” and “Black Women: Images and perception in Popular Culture” exhibits. In addition, he teaches photography (Perspective: 101) at Lillie May Carroll Jackson Charter School and Baltimore Collegiate School for Boys.
