About Me

My name is Kendall Warner and I am from Woodbridge, Virginia. I am currently a photojournalist with The News & Advance in Lynchburg, Virginia. In May 2019, I graduated from Western Kentucky University with a Bachelor's degree in photojournalism and a minor in political science. I have previously worked as a multimedia intern with MLive in Kalamazoo, Michigan, 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, won fifth place in the 2019-20 Hearst Journalism Awards in the Multimedia II-Innovative Storytelling and Audience Engagement category for a project on the opioid crisis in Kentucky, and been awarded third place in Class AAA of the Texas Associated Press Managing Editors for a sports video shorter than two minutes. I have worked with the Associated Press leading to photographs being used by The Washington Post, U.S. News and World Report, The Guardian and various other publications around the country. 

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 the Roanoke, Lynchburg, Charlottesville and Richmond areas of Virginia, and the Washington D.C. area. For more information or if you have any questions please feel free contact me.
