All about me.
Hi, I’m Kelly, and I’m the photographer here at Gallery Photography. I do love my job, but in the tradition of full disclosure, I must tell you I never really set out to become one.
You see, I was happily on my way to becoming a graphic artist when a beautiful girl lured me to the ways of photography. Photography was her love, her passion. She was the creative genius who started a business on a whim and set to work building it. Well, build it she did and gently lured me away from my boring, monotonous studies to become a graphic artist. And I have never looked back.
Sure, my photographic siren has moved on to bigger and better things, namely caring for our three children and a booming jewelry business that uses vintage coins (who knew?), but she gave me an incredibly fun, exciting, and rewarding career. I am forever indebted to that wonderful girl I call my wife and am thankful that I get to spend time sharing in and capturing the happiness in people’s lives.
That’s what it’s all about, you see. Spending time with the people that we love. Enjoying real moments. Laughing, loving and genuinely enjoying one another. My job, if you can call it that, is to freeze those times, capture those moments, so that they can be relived again and again, long after the actual event is over.
That’s my philosophy on shooting. Capture the fun, capture the love, capture the happiness. I don’t love the stiff images, where everyone looks straight-faced and stoic. To me, those images belong in history books of a hundred years ago. I love the imagery that shows how great it is to live now. Right now. And let me tell you, it’s really fun!
So there you have it. That’s me in a nutshell. If there’s anything else you want to know about me, shoot me an e-mail, I’m an open book.
If you want to see my work, take a look around the site and see if you don’t agree. And if you want to truly capture the happiness of your wedding, your family, your friends, let’s talk about working together. It would be my pleasure.
