About Me

My name is Kendall Warner and I am from Prince William County, Virginia. I am currently a multimedia intern with MLive at the Kalamazoo Gazette in Kalamazoo, Michigan. In May 2019, I graduated from Western Kentucky University with a Bachelor's degree in photojournalism and a minor in political science (https://wkupj.com). I have previously worked as a multimedia intern with the Victoria Advocate in Victoria, Texas, a summer intern with the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department's Public Information Officers in Northern Virginia and as a staff photographer for Western Kentucky University's student newspaper, The Herald. I have won an Award of Excellence in the 2019 College Photographer of the Year competition, been published as A New Light Emerging Photographer with The GoundTruth Project and won fifth place in the 2019-20 Hearst Journalism Awards in the Multimedia II-Innovative Storytelling and Audience Engagement category.

I started and fell in love with photography my sophomore year of high school where I focused mostly on art photography. I shot everything on black and white 35 mm film, using a Canon AE-1, and developing, enlarging and printing my own photographs. It was not until my senior year of high school and into my freshman year at Western where I fell in love with photojournalism and telling stories. I have a passion and strong interest for political photojournalism and hope to one day work in that field.

I am available for freelance assignments in Southern and Central Michigan, Northern Ohio, Northern Indiana and Northern Illinois. I will be available in the Washington D.C. area starting August 1, 2020. For more information or if you have any questions please feel free contact me.
