Kerry Bartlett runs her successful photographic business from her home in Walton, near Street. Many say that photography runs in her veins, as her grandfather was a BBC cameraman, and even founded the country's first Carrickfergus Camera Club back in the 1940s.
Her first camera was a green 'Supasnaps' Snappit, which she got her hands on back in 1989 - this inspired her to delve into the nitty-gritty of the science, methodology and art of photography.
Since then, Kerry studied Graphic Design at Plymouth College of Art - a sympathetic, compatible art form that defined the basis of her photographic technique and way of approaching her work.
Like so many of the most sought-after and talented photographers that we've come across, Kerry embarked on her photographic journey in the realms of producing 'film' photography, rather than the digital variety. Shooting with film means that she already has developed reams of patience from long hours working in the dark-room, and has 'trialled and errored' countless shoots from composition through to the final product.
Essentially, she knows exactly what lighting situations, camera settings and framing arrangements work best to create the perfect shot - and all of this truly shows through in her sublime photography.
