Kyle Meeks

Photographer | Filmmaker

Kyle was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, but now runs Meeks Media from Columbus, Ohio, traveling as a commercial & fashion photographer. With an eye for detail and passion for cinema, Kyle shifted his focus from studying Mechanical Engineering at The Ohio State University to pursuing his creative aspirations.

Within his first year of photography, he made the most of incredible opportunities by working with Nike, New York Fashion Week, and celebrity designers which resulted in his work being published around the world. He hopes to continue to make his mark as he enters the filmmaking industry and endeavors to create socially conscious and visually compelling films.

His ultimate goal is for Meeks Media to continue to grow as a community of creative visionaries dedicated to innovation. From photo to film and most things in between, Meeks Media focuses on creating solutions to your commercial and creative needs!
