My name is Kaitlin Kelly. Apparently, that means “Pure Warrior,” so besides sounding a little bit like the Crusades, that’s something of an introduction for you.
I’m a self-taught photographer from Sammamish, Washington, outside of Seattle. It has a funny name and is on a plateau with a wonderful view of the city. Growing up in a state that boasts a record of over-one-hundred straight days of rain did something for me, but I’m not sure what.
I attended New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, majoring in Film & Television. No, not photography. Someday, rather, I’d like to write a television series and run it and make some money and live in a cool house with a couple of dogs and my cat, Starbuck. (She’s named after the Battlestar Galactica character, not the coffee chain. I have pride in Seattle, but not that much.)
I work in a wide range of genres, mostly including landscape and city photography. I focus on both traditional and experimental photography, and like combining the two to interesting and sometimes disastrous results. I favour long exposures, macro, and digital infrared photography.
Especially the infrared bit. I started out with just my Hoya R72 infrared filter and an admiration for infrared photos I’d seen before. After years of experimenting, reading, learning and perfecting, I’ve developed my infrared skills into something quite admirable.
I’m a Nikon girl, currently shooting on a Nikon D300s with a multitude of lenses, some of them “previously owned” manual things with stunning optics and lovely flaws.
So, that’s that, then.
