Biography

My name is Kayleigh Bollin, and I studied at Martha's Vineyard Regional High School. I graduated January 2022. I have been pursing photography since I was 12 years old and hope to build on my skills as a photographer in the coming years. 

My uncle introduced me to photography through his own interest in documenting events like the annual agriculture fair on Martha's Vineyard. My father noticed my interest and bought me my first camera. I've been taking pictures ever since.

I have found that I like photographing people more than anything. I find it more fun and interesting to play with different poses, props and emotions. I enjoy telling stories about people's real lives or issues through photography.

My technical experience includes working with Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Illustrator. I own and operate many cameras and attachments, allowing me to be a versatile and adaptable photographer.
