We are 7 to 1 Photography

7 to 1 Photography with Kelly Pilgrim-Byrne was established in 2014 and began exclusively with animal and family photography and quickly expanded to corporate photography including events, branding and image library work.

7 to 1 have worked, and continue to work, with local governments (including but not limited to City of Bayswater, City of Melville, City of Cockburn, and City of Armadale) and corporate clients (including, but not limited to, Westrac, Women in Technology WA, WA Government, USAsia, Defence WA, Foundation for the WA Museum, Gelo Company, Murdoch University, Edith Cowan University and not-for-profits such as Activ Foundation, Good Sammies, Lifeline WA and the WA Aboriginal Leadership Institute). The combination of event, portrait, headshots, branding and image library work gives 7 to 1 extensive experience across a diverse range of photography genres. 7 to 1 images have been used extensively in marketing campaigns, annual reports, publications, and billboards.

Kelly often engages the talents of Emma Basc to work alongside her in major events, branding and image library work.

7 to 1 Photography specialise in photographing families with their pets, and includes the best dedicated animal wrangler in town – Kelly’s partner Sam, so you never have to worry about whether or not to include your pets in your family photos.  We’ve got you covered.

Both Emma and Sam come at no additional cost.

Kelly was made redundant from a senior admin role in a Perth University in 2014 and this is when she decided to follow a dream.  She started exclusively with pet and animal photography but then 6 months into her new role she was invited to shoot socials for Community Newspapers and with her new found mantra of “say yes, panic later” she jumped at the opportunity. 

She worked for Western Suburbs Weekly as a freelance photographer covering socials and news for over 5 years and credits her versatility as a photographer to being thrown in at the deep end of news photography.

7 to 1 Photography has diversified to specialise in events, commercial, lifestyle and pets.  She works with government and non-government organisations in a variety of fields, and private clients.  Her photography has been used on billboards, apps and augmented reality.

She is an Associate Member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers  and has won Silver, Silver Distinction and Gold awards every year since first entering the AIPP awards since 2014.  She has recently been appointed the official photographer for Business Armadale Chamber of Commerce.

Kelly also has postgraduate qualifications in Creative Writing from Curtin University and has had two collections of poetry published, the second of which is available for purchase from the publisher Grand Parade Poets.
