I’m constantly amazed at the young photographic talent we come across from around the globe. Small-town farm girl Kelly Steffey, 23, from just outside Birmingham, Alabama is no exception. She’s a girl of many passions, but her love for nature, sustainability and living off the land really inspires and energizes her work. She combines breath-taking surroundings, vintage/recycled wardrobes, and beautiful models to create some fantastic and moving images. Her subjects seem confident in their own skin and aren’t afraid to get dirty or explore what the world has out there.
A fact that may surprise you is that she’s not formally trained and only recently started shooting, just two summers ago in mid-2010. She’s now living and breathing the art-form with hopes to make a career for herself in the fashion world, linking arms with eco-focused fashion magazines, green companies and designer labels that use recycled or sustainably grown materials and fair labor practices.
Be sure to Contact Kelly for your next editorial or fashion shoot. She’s definitely not afraid to travel, as she frequents LA and Denver often.
