I feel like my journey is just beginning, but honestly, I’ve been on this path—honing my skills in the visual arts—for quite some time. I bought a B&W darkroom with money from a summer job that I set up in my childhood home; was introduced to graphic design and photography in high school that set me off on a path in the commercial arts; I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design.
I’ve made my living as a designer (kelleyalbertdesign.com) ever since, but photography has always held a special place in my heart. Here in Raleigh, I picked up my camera again, shooting everyday objects for stock agencies, and shooting cities and towns across North Carolina for my blog, kelley-in-carolina.
With every tool I pick up, with every medium I explore, and with every assignment I take on, they all have a few things in common. They teach me something new and they sharpen my sense of color and space—all while keeping me challenged, curious and engaged.
