The Candid Frame 294 – Take Kayo

Take Kayo is a Vancouver based street photographer and camera reviewer. Starting his career in photography as a weekend warrior wedding, commercial and sports photographer in the mid 1990’s, Take worked for Kodak-Phototrader from 1996 to 2005. During that time he worked with all the local commercial labs and professional photographers in town and understood the ‘business’ of photography… and wasn’t happy.

Leaving the photo industry, Take spent the next 5 years figuring out how to re-introduce photography back into his career along a path that was different than most of his fellow photographers. Starting his Bigheadtaco blog as an experiment in 2010, he continued posting pictures and eventually incorporating camera reviews.

He currently works closely with Fujifilm Canada, Leica North America, and Ricoh Imaging Canada. Take discovered Instagram in 2013 and considers his Instagram photography his primary portfolio, using mostly his iPhone camera. In 2014 Take started his own YouTube channel with his wife Camera Girl as his videographer. In 2015 Take added a producer to the team, and the rest is history.
