Kathy Kenney -
Contest Committee Chair
Bio: Kathy Kenney has always been interested in photography. As a young girl, she begged her parents for a camera, telling them that if she didn’t get a camera for Christmas, they didn’t have to get her anything else! She dabbled in family and wedding photography and became known as the “one with the camera” at the events she attended. Eventually, Kathy got a digital SLR, joined the South Shore Camera Club in Quincy, Massachusetts, and began to compete and win contests, one of her images being chosen as “Image of the Year” in beginning color. Kathy is now retired and is looking forward to working with the Tidelands Photography Club. She is a Nikon person.
