Welcome to theJustinKates.com

Justin Kates is a professional photographer and cinematographer based out of Charlotte, NC. He is the owner of independent FE Studios as well as a staff photographer for Stiff Magazine.

What is Justin's style? As with most artists, it is not simply a topic, subject, or rehearsed technique. Kates puts his stamp on things that others might glamorize by corroding, roughening, and artfully destroying objects of beauty and desire. This method, this gritty deconstruction of aesthetic objects results in a strange beauty, a revealing of the shadow side of human behavior.
