I'm Kay Bell.

I am a North Carolina based female photographer, cosplayer, pro wrestling trainee, and Animal Crossing enthusiast. I graduated from Interlochen Arts Academy in 2014, classically trained in music, art, and theatre.

I started shooting at local conventions in 2015 in Peoria, Illinois, about an hour from where I grew up. When I moved in North Carolina that fall, I began shooting professionally at conventions, weddings, events, and concerts.

I've been published in multiple magazines, including O-Rama Federation, the Women of Cosplay Calendar, and a few other things here and there. I have been lucky enough to work with Rhett and Link, Dope, Static-X, PIG, Julien-K, Killing Joke, and hundreds of cosplayers.

My work is ever growing and changing, and I like to collaborate with clients, creators, and photographers to create something new each time. With each shoot, I like to try something new-- even if it presents itself as a struggle.

Beyond photography, I am the parent of two rabbits, wrestle on the weekends at FireStar Pro Wrestling, and work in the gaming industry as a service delivery manager.
