Bio - George A. Kenna

Moments pass us by minute by minute, yet having the opportunity to capture these moments and freeze them for posterity, well that's a very special thing, don’t you think?


My name is George Kenna. I am an  a FAA Part 107 licensed commercial drone operator and a Certified Drone Photographer by the Professional Photographers of America.  I am a real estate and portrait photographer located in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. I proudly serve Brickyard Plantation, Mount Pleasant, Charleston, James and Johns Islands and Folly Beach communities. Previous to retiring here at the beginning of 2019, I was a clinical pharmacist and an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Brown University performing clinical drug trials. I have always loved photography and completed a program of formal training in Digital Photography at the Rhode Island School of Design. In addition to Rhode Island, I also lived in Monroe, NC and Vienna VA and welcomed the opportunity to return to the south following our son here and his growing family. I love telling photographic stories. I love connecting with people. Every day I meet someone new. Having the opportunity to leave my footprint in their lives with my photographs is why I do what I do. My hope is that when you look at my photographs, they will resonate with you, they tell a story, and even perhaps give you a glimpse inside someone else's story, even transporting you into their life for a brief moment. Over the course of my life I focused on the important stuff to make a living and be able to reach the point where I could do what I wanted with my family. I am finally there (yeah) and the wrinkles in my face prove it's taken a while. I don't think I would have wasted my time starting a business if I didn't love photography. But life is fleeting. Photography is so much more than just taking a picture. Every photograph should tell a story and it should resonate for years to come, transporting you back to the moment it was created every time you pull out your family albums and look at it. My hope is that when you look at your images, you are transported back to that moment and be able to relive it each time as if it was yesterday. Light is everything in photography but sometimes it takes a while to get it right. Now I don't have to be anywhere except to make the best photographs I can with you or whoever is important in your life. So let's get to work!


My Guarantee

What makes me different than any other photographers is a few things. One is that I will do outside portrait shoots early in the morning or evening: only. These are the golden hours and this limits the number of shoots I will do, so perhaps you might need to plan ahead. The rest of the time I will only do studio, real estate or drone photography. My focus is not on quantity but on providing you with great photographs that you will love always. Second, I guarantee* that my photographs will exceed your expectations. Regardless of the reason and I mean any reason, if you are unhappy with your photographs, I will: 1) not charge you anything; or 2) I will reshoot them. There isn’t another photographer anywhere who has that amount of confidence in their abilities and will stand behind their work like this. Lastly 10% of my earnings will be donated to The Avian Conservation Center & Center for Birds of Prey in Awendaw (http://www.thecenterforbirdsofprey.org/).  I pride myself in being professional, punctual, and in making my clients feel comfortable wherever we are. Charleston is such a special place. So whether you want a head shot, a special senior portrait, couples or family photographs lets get together and do something special and contact me today for an appointment. •  Please see the section of my website for Information/Pricing.
