About One of Adam Ewing’s clients summed it up nicely when he wrote of his work: “Expect brutally stunning portraits, action captured in harm's way and technical prowess on all fronts.” Adam’s love of photography began long before it became his career. Not destined for football greatness in high school, he turned his energies, instead, towards creative pursuits. It is evident from his earliest prints, developed in the haven of his school’s darkroom, that he had a discerning eye and an unusual aptitude for the craft. In 1990, he began studying at Virginia Commonwealth University and remained until 1992, when he took a two year hiatus from higher education to work on his future mother in law’s horse farm. Being a firm believer in the “eight year plan” and deciding that he might like to pursue a career in art rather than agriculture, he returned to VCU and completed his BFA in 1998. After graduating, he assisted some of the region’s finest commercial photographers, developing his skills and learning the business - ultimately taking the plunge in 2006 and opening his own studio specializing in high end commercial and editorial photography. He considers himself incredibly fortunate to have a career he loves that has taken him all over the country as well as one that has provided a host of creative collaborations. And in the rare down time between crazy schedules/shoots, he works on personal projects like his Salt Flats series, solely for the love of capturing beautiful images. He and his wife, Kelley, live in Richmond, Virginia in a mid-century house surrounded by old oak trees and a stone’s throw from the James River. They share their place with a bevy of beloved four legged creatures: five cats, rescued from the streets, and one Sheepadoodle named August.
