What Grant Watkins Photography is about: 

Grant Watkins Photography is about having fun, having a can-do, let’s get it done,and willingness to go off the beaten path attitude. There have been plenty of times where the must have photo was captured while raining, snowing, crouched down in the Konza Prairie or in the middle of a busy city street. It’s about going above and beyond expectations while having a stellar time with great and adventurous people.

How Grant Watkins Photography started: 

My journey started in high school taking elective classes Photo 1 and 2 under the guidance of my high school art teacher, Mrs. Engstrom.  I would spend as much time as I could to learn, develop and progress as a photographer. I will admit, my first pictures definitely weren’t award-winning by any stretch of the imagination. However, over the years I have honed my technical and creative skills to capture that one moment and breath-taking images. My passion to create has evolved into a thriving photography business where I get to interact, photograph, and be around amazing people.
