KELLY VANDERBEEK

Locally, Kelly is known for photographing newborns, weddings, and families.  However, internationally, Kelly is best known for her work as a sports photographer.

Retired Olympian turned sports broadcaster, Kelly's work in front of the camera is intricately linked to her work behind the camera.  Her sports photography regularly graces book covers, newspapers like the National Post, and National Sports coverage by CBC. 

Kelly created Branch Out because she wants to empower other women to help tell their sports stories.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
