I am a creative being, through and through. I credit my exposure in this industry to my parents, who are both creative directors. I grew up in photo studios working with models, stylists and other photographers- always aspiring to be a part of that world! After starting my photography business in high school in Madison, WI, I moved to California. Seeking a school with an underwater program, I attended and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts for Photography at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, CA. I continued to grow my fashion and lifestyle clients while living in Los Angeles. Now located in New York, Kelsey continues to follow her passion both in the city and on the beach.
Meeting and working with new brands, models and companies. I think photography is a form of psychology in many ways, you grow and learn with the people you photograph.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I typically try to tie my love for the water, fashion and lifestyle together whenever possible. I recently started a swimwear brand, of which I design, market and photograph. Instead of producing a shoot and casting talent, I collaborate with the talent during the creative process and try to photograph the subject in a way that highlights their personal style.
