Welcome to the official Thomas Kelsey Photography website. I offer editorial services including News, Feature, Sports, Portrait and Wedding Photography.

      From my latest book "The Spirit of the West", I have included many fine art images available framed or unframed in the Landscape & Wildlife galleries. If you have questions, please e-mail or call me.

     During the course of my career, I have photographed six presidents and covered many major news, feature and sports stories including the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, California. I was part of a team that won the Pulitzer Prize for the Los Angeles Times in 1983.   

    I have been a staff photographer at nine different newspapers including the Los Angeles Times; Rocky Mountain News, in Denver, Colorado; Press-Enterprise in Riverside, California and six other daily newspapers over a 35 year career. 

    While growing up in the Central Coast cities of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara, California, I started my career by covering anything and everything. I got my start at Santa Barbara City College and Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo and graduated from both schools with a degree in Journalism with an emphasis in Photojournalism.

    I am still following my dream. Thank you for taking time to explore my website.

     Photographing a wedding isn’t a job. It is seeing a couple on the biggest day of their lives setting out on a journey of life together forever. From the fitting of the dress until the final dance, I will be there with my camera to capture your story.

      I have photographed many weddings. I want to meet you both early on to photograph your engagement portraits at your favorite place. I also will capture your Wedding Proposal at your favorite place.

      I have wedding & portrait packages that will fit your budget. I can also put together a wedding album and make framed prints that you can look at each and every day. With any package, I will always provide you with a DVD with hi-resolution images.
