Artist Statement It is my belief that beauty, along with the gift of giving is an authentic human want for a happy and healthy life.

Artist Statement Grey Hills Studio was born out of my desire to refocus on film photography. I have always loved film, and was one of the last people I know to obtain a digital camera. I still shoot digital, as it is very cost effective and great in situations where you need to review and […]

As we know, humans have evolved with filters to exclude most of what is going on around them…this is what fascinates me about photography. It forces me to “see” things that normally I would just walk past. Through […]

Kelly Grant

Artist Statement Ever since I can remember I have been fond of photo’s and at a very young age I could often be found playing with an old box camera. A quote by supermodel Iman says it all “you may never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory”. Photography to me […]
