Kelly Hodge is a professional photographer based in Mountain Creek, Queensland
I was a country boy, growing up in Central West NSW and then North West NSW near a village called Come-By-Chance. Upon graduating high school at the local public school (well if you can call 56km local) I moved to the "Big Smoke" Sydney where I attended Sydney College of the Arts (now under the umbrella of University of Sydney http://sydney.edu.au/sca/) for my Bachelor of Visual Arts (photography) Graduating in 1987.
I then joined a photographic import company which had a professional sales division which sold such high-end brands as Mamiya medium format cameras, Sinar Large format camera's, Balcar and later Broncolor studio and location flash lighting and Nikon and Canon Professional film and Digital cameras. An intrinsic part of this job was knowing what equipment did, how each lens, light shaper, reflector would effect the image. I then continued my training with various equipment manufacturers in Singapore, Thailand, Germany, Switzerland and if course Australia I gained knowledge that was relied upon by the professional photography and agency community. Often doing special workshops on Broncolor lighting for Canberra Institute if Technology (CIT), RMIT, Australian Centre for Photography and KVB College as well as providing one on one tutorials on lighting for beauty and fine-art for photographers.
My passion is Fine-Art style, making use of each lights unique quality combined with ambient light, reflectors and blacks to paint my muse with complimentary light. This has lead to creative beauty assignments.
That being said my work in the glamour commercial world is also a style that I enjoy. Combining models with different environments creates an image with is greater than its parts. Published work includes Fast Fours, Wet and Wild Calendar plus a number of company catalogues. View More...
