Kyle Lieberman is a New York based photographer and DP known for his split-second captures and being as close to the action as feasibly possible. Kyle grew up in Minnesota and graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and moved to NYC in the fall of 2016. He has a penchant for custom bikes, adrenaline, and fashion sentiments that resonate through his work. You can find Kyle racing mountain bikes all over the northeast during the summer, slashing powder in Vermont in the winter or on beach 69th street in the Rockaways all year round where he has a surf house and spends most days with a decent swell. In order to shoot athletes, you need to be an athlete, which is why when Kyle isn't shooting he is taking part in the sports and activities he photographs in order to understand every element of the sport. 50+ miles with a 50lb backpack of equipment is how Kyle was able to capture the photos of XC mountain biker Jake Billings in the Las Vegas/Sedona mountain trails; without an athlete's endurance and stamina, those photos would have never been feasible. Kyle also owns a photo studio in Brooklyn, NY called Flux Studios which he calls home.
