1. Had a great shoot yesterday with @therealdwele in Detroit. It’s nice that my neighbor at the studio is also a Grammy-Award Winning singer…we didn’t have to venture too far to find this spot. #dwele #hegotgrammys #grammywinner #grammy #singer #r&b #neosoul #detroit #corktown www.briankellyphoto.net

     
  2. Had fun on a downtown Detroit rooftop w/ @shadesdet for another @detroitportrait. Shades was just starting a mural for another of his many corporate clients. #Detroit #DetroitPortrait #shades #shadesdet #roof #rooftop #pentax #pentax645z www.briankellyphoto.net

  4. The 2nd @detroitportrait of my friend @rickwlms at The Ambassador Bridge in #Detroit. Rick co-owns @BurnRubberDetroit and is a shoe and clothing designer and his own fashion line called @DistinctLife. This guy hustles extremely hard and has been an inspiration to me since meeting him almost 3 years ago. #respect #Detroit #DetroitPortrait #BurnRubber #DistinctLife #thetalentedtenth #talentedtenth #rickwilliams #briankellyphoto www.briankellyphoto.net

  6. My portrait of “Shades” (@shadesdet)…a world renowned graffiti artist with major corporate clients like Fiat, Chevrolet and Quicken (among many others.) It’s great when a portrait subject you barely knew at all eventually becomes one of your very good friends. I now have a studio in the same amazing building as Shades…so we’re neighbors now! #detroit #detroitportrait #shades #graf #graffiti #artist #Chevy #Fiat #briankellyphoto www.briankellyphoto.net

     
  7. My 2nd portrait of Jim from the @rosaparksboys in the Detroit neighborhood of Corktown. Jim Tumey’s a master at connecting artists to the incredibly collaborative space he helped start on Rosa Parks Boulevard. It’s a place where you can skateboard, watch a movie, host a dinner party or hang your very first art exhibition. The best part is these guys are just down the street from my Detroit studio and I’ll be back frequently. #rosaparksboys #detroit #corktown #art #artists #briankellyphoto #briankelly #instadaily #picoftheday #instapic #skateboarding #levis #levisskateboarding www.briankellyphoto.net

     
  8. My 2nd portrait of François from the @rosaparksboys in the Detroit neighborhood of Corktown. François Decomble moved to Detroit from France 4 years ago and is a founding member of the incredibly collaborative space on Rosa Parks Boulevard. It’s a place where you can skateboard, watch a movie, host a dinner party or hang your very first art exhibition. The best part is these guys are just down the street from my Detroit studio and I’ll be back frequently. ‪#‎rosaparksboys‬‪ #‎detroit‬ ‪#‎corktown‬ ‪#‎art‬ ‪#‎artists‬ ‪#‎briankellyphoto‬ ‪#‎briankelly‬ ‪#‎instadaily‬‪#‎picoftheday‬ ‪#‎instapic‬ ‪#‎skateboarding‬ ‪#‎levis‬ ‪#‎levisskateboarding‬ www.briankellyphoto.net

  11. The 3rd photo of Joey Ruiter (@JoeyRuiter) ripping up the dunes with his dune buggy/car. Joey is a brilliant inventor and designer. You’ll have to trust me when I tell you that the buggy was INSANE. We shot on location in the dunes at Silver Lake State Park. It’s one of the more unique places on Earth; just another reason why Michigan is the best state in the history of states. ‪#‎michigan‬ ‪#‎JoeyRuiter‬‪#‎dunes‬ ‪#‎dunebuggy‬ ‪#‎ORV‬ ‪#‎puremichigan‬ ‪#‎briankelly‬ ‪#‎briankellyphoto‬‪#‎instapic‬ ‪#‎instadaily‬ ‪#‎inventions‬ www.briankellyphoto.net
