Snakes In The City + 1 Fairy

June 1, 2018

Greg Emlet  was not happy with his snake Atticus (as in Atticus Finch, “To Kill a Mockingbird”), so it (a Demeril’s boa) was not present this day at Loose Park. Greg left him at home to sulk. “He’s shedding” Greg explained. And when that happens Atticus apparently gets a bit cantankerous. But Greg did have…

Fire and how we got that way

April 13, 2018

When DID humans discover how to make fire? Best guesses are between 700,000 and 120,000 years ago. Most likely, naturally occurring blazes ignited by lighting strikes first got the attention of our ancestors. I mean, like, who could NOT notice a huge savanna aflame, columns of smoke rising hundreds of feet in the air? Animals fled…

Captain Kirk and Useless

March 31, 2018

  Hard to imagine that William Shatner, aka, James T. Kirk, Captain of the Star Ship Enterprise, turned 87 this month. Last October, when he was “only” 86, it was apparent he had not lost any of his commander of the bridge attitude, take charge persona and Shatner swagger. The house was packed that autumn…

He knows what a photo should be and is always willing to take whatever time is necessary to get high quality results...no matter the conditions!

Roy’s just a genuinely nice person to boot.

As a freelance writer and former editor of two upscale lifestyle publications in Kansas City, I have had the great experience of working with Roy Inman. He truly defines collaboration and creativity. Not only is Roy a technically talented and thoughtful photographer, he always has his eye on how to tell stories visually, in a fresh and compelling way, and is diligent and dedicated to any task. I always know when Roy is photographing one of my stories my words are in a master visual storyteller’s hands.

If you know of a more iconic photographer than Roy Inman, more steeped in Kansas City, you’re incorrect. Roy sees and captures the moment better than anyone else can. New Theatre comes back to Roy Inman time and again because we know we’ll get great shots. That’s why you hire a photographer, right?

I've had the opportunity to work with Roy Inman on a variety of book projects, and he's a joy. His photographic skills are excellent to the point of extraordinary. He possesses a remarkable ability to capture not just the technically perfect photograph but the emotions that inspired the image in the first place. His chronicling of vast parts of the Kansas City landscape is especially notable. One comes away from an Inman photograph with awe and an awareness of Roy's deep love for his craft. On top of that, the man hits his deadlines!
