With roots in journalism and a passion for fine art, award winning photographer Kelly Berry is always in search of a different view.
Kelly Berry found his passion in photography originally as a photojournalist when he worked for the Portales News Tribune, a publication in Eastern New Mexico. Over time his focus shifted, and he is now an emerging fine art photographer.
Kelly has won several awards including Best of Show in the City of Richardson Photo Contest (2003), Best of Show in the Age of Steam Railroad Museum Photo Contest (2003), Second Grand Prize in the Kodak Assignment America Photo Contest (2003), Best of Show in the Plano Photography Club Showcase (2004), and again the Best of Show in the Age of Steam Railroad Museum Photo Contest (2004). Kelly’s work has been displayed on the Kodarama in Times Square and been published in Popular Photography and Imaging, American Photo and Modern Luxury Dallas Magazines. Kelly lives in Murphy, Texas with his wife and son.
Kelly Berry’s images offer a different and detailed perspective on common themes. His subjects may be in motion, as with many of his photographs in the Bikes Series; or his focus turn to the minute detail of rusting components on steam engines or the dazzling chrome dashboards of vintage cars.
Details on Kelly Berry’s Bike Series. The first image in this series was Night Bike. The photograph was made in the old town of Stockholm. It was part of a series of night shots that Kelly was pursuing in the style of the French masters who photographed Paris. However, after he viewed the slide, Kelly became interested in bicycles and cycling as a subject for an entire series of photographs. The commuters in Europe, the thousands of bikes parked at Amsterdam Central Station, the local racers at the Tuesday night Criterium in Plano, Texas and the professional stunt riders who thrill the crowds all have a visual story to tell. His goal for the Bike Series is to capture the essence of them all on film and pixels.
