New York City native Keith Major’s love for photography and art began in his pre-teen years, when he attended after-school programs at the Brooklyn Museum of Art and Pratt Institute. Keith specialized in photography at New York’s highly regarded High School of Art and Design, and after graduation attended the prestigious Rochester Institute of Technology, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
With more than 30 years of experience and a roster of A-list clients including Sony Music, Colgate-Palmolive, Essence and Cosmopolitan, Keith has achieved his childhood dreams and established a sterling reputation as one of New York’s most talented and productive commercial photographers.
Keith’s memories of his years at the HS of Art and Design
There was so much talent at the High School of Art and Design. I was as much in awe as I felt at home in a very special place. I couldn’t help but to feel like we were all special. I was always curious about every single student, particularly the ones I didn’t know well or share classes with, “what talent brought them to this place? I’d ask myself.”
My love of the school started the day I took the test to get in, a love at first site that never faded. A&D was the start that gave me the confidence to pursue my photography career with clear purpose and intention.
