Kenny X Hamlett

Kenny Hamlett is DP and Director. He picked up a camera in 2017 because he was sad and unfulfilled with the direction my life had taken. He instantly fell in love with the idea of documenting the world the way that he sees it and hasn’t looked back. He is passionate about sharing stories that he can relate to, those from marginalized communities featuring people like those he grew up with. The transition from photography to documentary film followed that urge to share stories that matter from underrepresented communities. Kenny has worked with international clients including Four Seasons, Fuji Film, Clif Bar, Marmot, and others. He has completely dedicated his life to telling stories that matter and that might not have been told otherwise; with the intention of healing himself and hopefully others as a byproduct.
