Kerry runs her own freelance commercial photography business in Melbourne. Her ability to associate with people in every situation, love of story telling and gentle personality has seen her personal work and style really come into their own in her Social Documentary Collections.
Her talent for connecting with people has brought Kerry into some of the most humbling and hair-raising situations in life, both of which are brought to the frame with ease, flair and dignity.
Kerry travels regularly for her work, with one of her most regular destinations being Ethiopia on assignment for “Eyes for Africa” and “Beyond the Orphanage,” work which has been published for the Emirates Airline Foundation.
Natural care and patience, and an ability to relate with her subject, are part of Kerry’s own signature style. Her control of natural light allows her to tell stories and give voice without judgement, just capturing the honesty of the moment where her ability really comes into her own in social documentary collections.
