Fine art photographer Kelly Fitzgerald is an American born artist best known for his fine art landscapes of the Hawaiian Islands.
Fitzgerald strives to create works that capture and preserve the beauty in nature and in vanishing places – images that will inform the viewer and convey his deep belief in the value of these amazing places.
Fitzgerald discovered his love for art and photography at an early age. In 1985, while living on the island of Kauai, he decided to move to San Diego, California to pursue his passion of the arts. He enrolled in the photography/art program at San Diego City College. He also studied oil painting and charcoal drawing at the San Diego Art Plex.
His photographs have been in numerous exhibits throughout the United States and Europe. Fitzgerald's work has also won several awards including The Golden Light Award and the IPA Lucie Award. He was honored at The Hubbard Museum in Association with The Smithsonian Institution in 2003, and was the first photographer to receive the Gene Harrison Memorial Award in November of 2003.
July of 2009, he wrapped up a 5 year project called "A New Discovery" ~ Black & White Infrared Film Landscapes of the Hawaiian Islands. That same year, he was chosen to be a part of the Calumet Ansel Adams Tribute Video. His image "Shipwreck Beach - III, Lanai" was featured in the video.
Kelly is based out of Hawaii, California and Philadelphia and travels several months each year to pursue his art.
His work can be found in many corporate and private collections across the United States.
