Kenya standing tall

KENYA CALLENDER

born and raised in Queens, NY. During her early adult years she walked the runway for several designers in multiple states. Utilizing the knowledge she gained from those experiences she was able to perfect her runway walk and began training other models. In 2006, she successfully produced her own fashion show which opened the door for the opportunity for her to work with designers who specifically chose to directly work with her on their shows. Her passion for the business developed her continued love of photography over the past seven years. She initially began photographing fashion shows, evolving to her own photo shoots and weddings. Later she was hired from 2009-2012 as backstage manager and Head photographer for 7onSeventh, which hosts Fashion shows during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City for up and coming designers. In 2014, Kenya appeared in two magazine publications; GEI mag and Sexy x2 Mag. It was after being published, she decided to create her own fashion/lifestyle magazine, coming up with NYC Trendz with her partner. For nearly two years they each worked tirelessly to complete the first publication which debuted in July 2016. As the main photographer for the magazine, her contributors ranged from other photographers to up and coming models, writers, designers all throughout NYC. Though the duo decided to part ways professionally her accomplishments thus far have been pleasing. After continuous feedback from her supporters and love of the art of photography, Style & Soul was born. The first run of her collection released spring of 2018. The bar now being raised, she continues to prove herself worthy as a NYC photographer with her end goal to one day have Style & Soul Magazine on newsstands nationwide!
