He was born and raised in the blue-collar city of Buffalo, NY. His passion for winter activities comes from skiing on the slopes of Holiday Valley Ski Resort in the Alleghany Mountains. His mother and father put him on skis at the age of 4 and he has never looked back. He attended St. Bonaventure University, which conveniently was only 20 minutes to the closest ski area, earning a degree in Elementary Education and English. Upon graduation Kevin was bitten by the travel bug and moved to Galway, Ireland. While there he completed more college credits while traveling to various countries around Europe.
Kevin first visited Steamboat Springs during his freshman year of high school. During that ski vacation Kevin told his friends that Steamboat would someday be his permanent home. After spending summer vacations and winter breaks in Steamboat for the next 8 years Kevin decided to make his dream a reality in 2002 when he departed Buffalo, NY and drove to Steamboat.
Kevin has since started K Dietrich Studios and travels extensively to capture stunning images of wildlife and unique landscapes photographs. His passion for the outdoors and extreme patience shows up in his images. He travels with his black labrador, Sawyer, as much as he can. Otherwise you can find Kevin visiting some of his favorite spots in the country. Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Denali and Rocky Mountain National Parks are high on his list of hot spots.
