We are 7 to 1 Photography
Kelly established 7 to 1 Photography in 2014 after leaving an administrative career at a Perth university to work full time as a photographer. She began exclusively with animal and family photography and quickly expanded to events, branding, content and image library work. She also worked as a freelance photographer for the Community Newspaper Group for 5 years.
Kelly is also a published poet of two collections of poetry, both in the United Kingdom and here in Australia. She sees photography as visual poems and this shines through in her imagery.
7 to 1 Photography specialise in photographing families with their pets, and includes the best dedicated animal wrangler in town – Kelly’s wife Sam, so you never have to worry about whether or not to include your pets in your family photos. We’ve got you covered.
From time-to-time Kelly engages the services of Emma Basc and Tia Johnson to assist with large or non-repeatable important events.
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, families and pets. She works with government and corporate and not-for-profit organisations. Her photography has been used in marketing material, publications, billboards, apps and augmented reality.
Kelly 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.
