TEN Kickstarter page:
We are extremely excited that Kelly Davidson, brilliant photographer and videographer to the stars has joined the crew of TEN. Sophia and I have worked with Kelly many times before. She has taken many of our band press photos, toured with us as a documentarian, and even toured with us as a bass player. We can’t wait to work with her to make TEN look splendid for your eyeballs!
As she will be working the camera and shooting a script written by Michael, she chose to announce her participation with a short film…possibly with a script written by Michael, but no one can prove it. It could have been written by anyone really.
Kelly Davidson grew up in the CT suburbs of NYC until moving to Storrs to attend UCONN where she quickly found her place at the Daily Campus newspaper as staff photographer and writer. After transferring to Boston University in 1997, she started shooting for the Boston Phoenix and became a stringer for Suburban World Newspapers, along with photo editor, and later editor, of BU’s entertainment weekly, the MUSE.
Kelly graduated from BU’s College of Communication in 1999 with a BS in Photojournalism. She worked at the Boston Phoenix for 6 years as a Senior Designer in the editorial department, shooting on the side and working closely with many local photographers.
In 2005 Kelly became a full-time freelance photographer and designer, Her assignments have brought her all over the country, from Maui to Lake Tahoe, and all over the world, from Mexico to Portugal, shooting everything from Yoga retreats to music festivals to advertising campaigns.
Winner of 3 New England Press Association (NEPA) awards, and a long-standing member of both the National Press Association (NPPA) and the Boston Press Association (BPPA), Kelly consistently demonstrates a commitment to excellence in the field of photojournalism. From corporate portraits for Digitas, to shooting behind the scenes at Boston Ballet’s The Nutcracker for the Weekly Dig, Kelly is a versatile photographer with a strong drive and charismatic approach to every assignment.
Her on-going personal portrait project entitled “Rock ’n’ Roll Parents” features local musicians with their kids, including Kay Hanley from Letters to Cleo, Dana Colley of Morphine, David Minehan of Woolly Mammoth Studios and the band The Neighborhoods, Roger Miller from Mission Burma, and others. Someday it will be a book.
