Christine Keeley is a Studio Owner and independent Artist, based in NY and Summit NJ, best known for her bold and emotive imagery. Christine’s lifelong passion for the visual and performing arts is reflected in her unique photographic style, capturing the natural movement and expressions of her subjects. Influenced by feminine strength and her interest in the human condition, she uses the camera as a tool to elevate and inspire her subjects.

With a lengthy corporate career and the rise of digital art, Christine was able to envision a path to a successful business as an entrepreneur. After raising her two young children, she made the bold career move to the visual arts, where she naturally felt the transition to photography. She invested heavily in fine-tuning her craft, shooting in the studios of some of the world’s top fashion and beauty photographers. Christine’s instagram led to her first lifestyle shoot with an influencer- and she never looked back. Her portfolio now includes - but is not limited to - music artists, actors, models, C-level executives, influencers, entrepreneurs, visual and performing artists.

In 2018, Christine was invited to join a boutique art gallery in New York as Associate Art Director, which led to a position on the board of Summit Public Arts. From there, Christine embarked on her own exhibition projects, as both exhibitor and curator, in NYC and NJ. In 2021, Christine was invited to teach an online course in Digital Photography through the NY Enrichment Group.
