We interviewed Kelly about favorite inspirations, travel tips, and luxury lifestyle.
Where do you consider your artistic home? Is there a city, country or neighborhood that inspired you to get into photography?
I believe the Mediterranean. I moved to Milano when I was 21 and it was a great change of scenery for a kid who grew up in Southern California. It feels like home, I can’t wait to go back next month.
Did you go to school to study photography?
Yes, Brooks Institute of Photography.
Which camera do you use?
Nikon D850…. Mostly.
How would you describe your photography style?
Sort of a dreamy/travel/luxury/lifestyle.
What time of day do you prefer to shoot, night or day?
The hour before and after sunrise and sundown.
The Fox Magazine is all about inspiration, what/who inspires you the most?
Travel inspires my photography. Man Ray has always been my favorite photographer. Two totally different things and styles but both inspiring.
If you had to choose one lens which one would it be and why?
Painful question but I guess an 85mm. 21mm is a close 2nd.

What’s the best part of being a photographer?
Meeting new people every day and getting paid to travel to beautiful international locations.
