Kerri-Jo discovered her love for photography while capturing the beauty of the equine athlete. She has been a researcher in equine physiology studying performance in racehorses as well as a competitor who was Western Canadian Champion and top five in North America in distance riding. Drawing from her extensive background with horses she hit the professional photography scene immediately winning the title of Professional Photographers of Canada BC Photographer of the Year.
Since then Kerri-Jo has won numerous arts awards, most recently the City of Richmond Art Award for Artistic Innovation.

She has covered events in China (meeting with presidents and getting blessed by a Dala Lama reincarnate), Iran (twice, including living with a tribal community in the north for three months), Turkmenistan (nine times for Turkmen Horse events and once for their Independence Day celebrations), Uruguay (covering endurance horse racing) as well as a foodie and adventure tour for Tourism Argentina.
