Kristin Gladney Photography


Kristin is an international photographer based in Brooklyn, NY. An artist since she could hold a crayon, it wasn't clear what direction she would take until she discovered photography. While studying at Brown she took an introduction to black and white photography course at RISD. In the darkroom, watching her first print develop, she felt the magic, fell in love. At that moment she decided she would pursue photography as a career.

A series of internships at Magnum and Art + Commerce led to her first job as an assistant to William Abranowicz, master photographer and printer, where she quickly fell in love with international travel photography.

With a curious mind and a love of travel, adventure, food and culture, Kristin has been exploring and photographing the globe for the past ten years for commercial and editorial assignments.

Some of her clients include Food & Wine, Travel + Leisure, Starbucks, Starwood Hotels and Resorts, The London Hotel, Delta, chilewich, Sweet Paul Magazine, Equinox, Bud Light, BVLGARI, Sprite and Verizon Wireless.
