Kevin McManus was raised in Yelm and has started a photography business in Olympia.
He told the Yelm Community blog,
“This is Kevin McManus here and I am contacting everyone to let you know about my new endeavor. I am now offering my services as photographer and videographer to any and all in need of such a person.

Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment”!
“The time has come to utilize my creativity.”
Many will remember Kevin for his passion, depth of performance and creativity in so many Drew Harvey Theater productions as a teen several years ago. Kevin, his mother and grandmother all added to the culture of Yelm, his mother formerly a morning server with smiles at Mr. Doug’s for years.
From Kevin’s website:
I am an Olympia, Washington based student of media, sociology, and ethnography.
As an artist, if I may grant myself such a title, what fascinates me most is how elements of individuals come together to form a culture.
As an socio-ethnographer, I seek to record individuals in a detailed, accurate way. To this end, I endeavor to capture images which glorify nuance, choice and consequence.
My goal is to participate in the creativity of others while gaining a better understanding of my craft. With that, I provide my services as a mediamaker.
I work in an unlimited variety of styles and themes, and look forward to challenging myself and my clients to conceive real art.
“Some men see things as they are, and say ‘Why?’
I dream things that never were, and say ‘Why not?'”
