Kendra A. Kabasele Photography

Photographer & Journalist

Kendra A Kabasele Photography was born when LA-based Canadian Journalist and Photographer Kendra A. Kabasele transformed the worst pain in her life after losing her mother, into a beautiful passion project in honor of her mother and mothers around the world, every day, all year long. The Anita Claire Project was launched on Mother's Day of 2014, as a gift to her mother. Out of The Anita Claire Project came a natural transition into capturing other subjects, places and objects. After about a decade of experience in the behind the scenes of the photo syndication and licensing world, representing photographers and serving clients in all streams of media (print, broadcast, film, online, etc), Kendra has embraced her creative side and is creating photographic memories for people, from behind the lens. While she likes to call her passion "people photography", she also excels in the areas of capturing the beauty of travel and everyday objects. As an international photographer, her love for documentary style shooting also allows for priceless candid pieces, in every type of assignment she dives into.
