Director

Kevin Fitzgerald

Kevin tells beautifully sensitive stories with a powerful visual point of view.

Before becoming an internationally acclaimed director, Kevin Fitzgerald was a successful print photographer who had refined a style that often incorporated equal parts suggestion, beauty, and simplicity.

After two years of shooting print and moving images around Europe, Kevin settled down in Cape Town, South Africa to concentrate on directing.  From this base, he developed an international following.  He has worked for the American market on high-end brands such as Lexus, Audi, Fiat, Amstel, and Wachovia, for the likes of Team One, Venables Bell & Partners, DraftFCB, Mullen, the Richards Group, and Grey Worldwide.

Kevin has built a reel with unique visual identity that is distinctively emotive, all while telling beautifully sensitive stories. “I love doing work that connects with our humanity, inspires visually, and stirs emotionally,” Kevin notes, “Finding the cues that make us feel, trust and believe in something that we know is make-believe. I try to find the realness in things, allowing the beauty in people to come through. I like to strip away the hype.”

Kevin’s print and film work has been commissioned and published on every continent except for Antarctica, and he credits growing up in South Africa for inspiring his creative spirit.
