Drew Bly Bio

Drew Bly graduated with an associate degree in fine art from Harold Washington College and bachelor’s degrees in graphic design and printmaking from Western Kentucky University. Originally from Louisville, Ky., Drew has spent a majority of his years living a transient lifestyle moving to 13 major cities to perfect his craft of portrait photography. In the quest of taking the approach of the road less traveled, Drew has committed his life to service, adventure, and challenging social norms.  Undoubtedly, it has formed a creative, against-the-grain mentality that developed in pursuit of capturing extraordinary portraits in unique and bazaar locations. Through his lens, Drew captures the genuine essence of who people really are in whatever environment they meet; one that is often overlooked in society. In response, his portraits invoke a story, preserving that moment in time. Drew’s excellence and vision are unmistakable through his photos.
