Geof Kern (Brooklyn, New York 1950) opened his first studio in Dallas in 1978 after graduating from Brooks Institute, the former photography school in Santa Barbara California. Early recognition came from editorial work for magazines such as Esquire, GQ, (the early) Detour, Beach Culture, and Rolling Stone. With a career now spanning 40 years he has photographed many award winning campaigns for clients such as Bloomingdales New York, Selfridges London, Matsuda Tokyo, Neiman-Marcus, Mercedes France, Acura, Ford Europe, and Interface International.
Kern is a recipient of the peer-nominated Infinity Award in Applied Photography from The International Center of Photography (ICP), New York. Examples of his work have been collected by the Musée des Arts Décoratifs Paris (2000) and The Museum of Fine Arts Houston (2015).
