Hey guys, I’m Kelly and I am the person behind Photography Hero.
I have been a professional photographer for a long-dang time now, over 16 years, and I love it.
Becoming a photographer was one of the best decisions I have ever made, because it has given me a career where I can earn money to support my family (always important), make meaningful lifelong friends with my clients (so awesome), be creative every single day of my life (which, as a child of God, I think we all need in our lives), and avoid working a mind-numbing job (which I had many of, before becoming a photographer).
Photography has the power to create income, lift self-worth, and document memories that will last for generations.
How can you not love photography?
Whether you are here to learn photography to better your financial position in life, or to find joy through creating beautiful images of the things you love, you have come to the right place.
I want to be your photography teacher, mentor, and friend.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. My journey to photography was most likely a bit different than most, as it was not a profession I had considered. I was happily on my way to becoming a graphic designer 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 soon she needed help! Being her husband, I was the logical choice to help her, so she began gently pulling me away from my boring, monotonous studies; and I have never looked back.
I have been thankful to her ever since, as I love being a photographer.
She has moved on to other creative endeavors, mainly creating beautiful jewelry from vintage coins from around the world, but photography remains one of her loves.
We have three awesome boys together and an always awesome Border Collie, Nelly.
