Nanci Kerby is a commercial photographer who has photographed internationally in France, Ireland and Tahiti, as well as in Hollywood, San Francisco, and the Napa Valley. She photographs advertising images, people in business, winery events, company informal gatherings, corporate images, weddings, and licenses stock images worldwide. Nanci communicates well with people of all walks of life. Her friendly demeanor immediately puts her clients at ease.
Nanci's extensive background in the fashion modeling field blends beautifully with her profession of photographer by serving to bridge the gap in communication between those in front of camera and those behind it. Her love of nature contributes to her sense of balance and beauty through simplicity, color, and feeling. Relying on her intuitive energy of design as well as fundamental knowledge of line, balance and lighting skills contribute to the overall impact of her images.
Photographing for magazine covers, editorial, and winery brochures (wine bottle product, unique winemaker portraits, winery architecture, general beauty shots) have contributed to Nanci Kerby's commercial understanding of creating a desirable image. To maintain inspiration and creativity, photographers often pursue personal projects.
Nanci likes working with models, and for her present project, she is creating Old World Portraits. She has enthusiastically embraced a new direction of portraiture inspired by the old Renaissance Masters Paintings. She and a fellow photographer are shooting a series of “Painterly” Present day Renaissance Paintings. These elaborate “portraits” include The Set design, the costuming, the jewelry and the significant accoutrements to illustrate the sitter's societal position in the painting/photograph. The finished enlargement is then varnished and layered with several coats of clear medium and then cracked to resemble an ancient piece of art. Old World Portraiture in the present. Capturing the joy and beauty of weddings has now become an integral part of Nanci Kerby's yearly calendar.
Nanci and her camera manage to find the enchanted memories of wonder, excitement, tears, heart felt smiles, shrieks of laughter, joyful greetings, family portraits, beautiful surroundings, private moments, eye-to-eye silent communication and tidbits of fun throughout the day.
