Kelly Neal is a California-based photographer. He received an MFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts in 2007 in New York City.  Neal's still life work was selected for a hand-curated art program that is featured in Hyatt's newly opened hotel, the Lex 48 in Manhattan.

Neal served as The Lambent Foundation's first artist-in-residence and in 2009 where he photographed a body of work named I Follow You Downtown that explores voyeurism and surveillance around Ground Zero in lower Manhattan. He attended Review Santa Fe and was also fortunate to be named a semi-finalist in the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery Competition. He has experience shooting portraits, celebrity, fashion, food, events, and culture editorial assignments.

Neal always fits time to give back by teaching private photography lessons and workshops to beginning photographers, students, small business owners, and photography professionals. He also offers consulting on software programs such as Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. He has recently relocated back to San Francisco after spending a decade in NYC.
