Kevin Dailey has been involved with photography since childhood. For many years his main interest was nature and marine photography. His work took a major step forward in the 80's when he photographed and produced the "Newsday Yachting Series" multi-media presentation for the Long Island based newspaper. Since then he has had the opportunity to photograph yacht races all around the world, such as up and down the east coast of the USA, Sardinia, Germany, England, France. Many of these images have been published or have been presented in his multi-media presentations that have been given to groups of up to 400 people.
Kevin has photographed ski racing for the “Jeep Ski Club Challenge”, home/business interiors for interior designers and homebuilders and many other subjects. He has photographed his subjects from planes, helicopters, small inflatable boats, from a moving sailboat mast 75’ off the deck, from skis, next to Buffalo in the snow fields of Yellowstone or traversing the Alps of southern France.
“Harbor Gallery” in Rowayton, CT offers Kevin's B&W sailing images and abstract art in limited editions.
Represented by “BLINK ART”, a division of Art Design Consultants in Cincinnati, OH.
In 2007 and 2008, Kevin took a new direction, which transforms his photographic images into captivating art. He has been commissioned to create individual works and recently signed a licensing agreement with "Roubini Rugs" of New York to produce a series of hand knotted rugs of his work.
