Ross Oscar Knight is an artist who has an intense passion to understand humanity one photograph at a time. He combines his curiosity of universal love and spirituality to fuel his thirst to explore different culture. Knight has the ability to observe and distill human emotion down to its very essence. His strength in communication through imagery was born out of a childhood speech impediment. Since he believes life is lived in moments and not in poses, mobility and time travel are recurrent themes in his work. Whether in rural Alabama or a remote village in Africa, he uses his camera as a tool to forge new relationships and to frame stori-es ever-present in people's lives.
Knight is a trusted member of the Professional Photographers of America and his images have appeared in various media outlets across the globe. Notably, CNN, Oprah Winfrey, HGTV, the NBA, Forbes, Fox Business News and LIVESTRONG have featured his photographs. The photo stories he produces have received interests from 20th Century Fox and Lifetime Television. As a philanthropist he supports cancer research and is active in mission trips around the world. As a speaker he hosts 3 photography workshops annually. His mission is to Build Community Through Photography. Knight will publish his first book in 2012 containing selections of his work from the past 10 years. Ross and his wife, Brandi, of 4 years reside in metro Atlanta with their 3 year old Weimaraner, Bauer. The couple is excited to be expecting their first child this September.
