Kaiser Cunningham is a Creative Director based in Nashville with wide-ranging experience including music video direction and production, documentary storytelling, portrait and live photography, artist branding, and more.
Born and raised in Cheyenne, Wyoming, he has always had an eye for visual arts and served as the staff photographer for the largest newspaper in Cheyenne, Wyoming at just 17 years of age. He further developed his passion for photography while in college, when what began as an elective class captivated his imagination and became his core academic focus. Inspired by directors such as Curt Morgan and Ty Evans at BrainFarm in Jackson Hole, Cunningham continued to build his portfolio as a freelance concert photographer while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps from 2016-2020.
With the connections he built during that time, most notably his relationship with mentor Ben Hagarty, the driving force behind the online creative community Black With No Cream, Cunningham relocated to Nashville in 2020. He began capturing performances of top-tier music artists full time, including Keith Urban, Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line, Anderson .Paak, Gary Clark Jr., Danielle Bradbery, Matt Stell, Travis Denning, and more, in addition to serving as the full-time Creative Director for Chase Rice.
Focused on pushing the envelope both technically and in subject matter to evoke an emotional response, Kaiser’s work has been featured on national television shows including Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Entertainment Tonight. His work has also been recognized by the American Advertising and Telly Awards as well as many international film festivals. In print and digital outlets, his work has been seen in Sports Illustrated, Forbes, People Magazine, Men’s Journal, and Whiskey Riff, and across various brands such as Mtn Dew, Jack Daniel’s, Coors Banquet, Toyota, and LIDS.
