About Kahlil H. Francis


Kahlil Francis is not ‘just’ a Photographer. He is a lover, supporter, enthusiast and connoisseur of the art of photography.

Over the last 20 years, what started out as a hobby has developed into an intense love affair that has opened this artist’s eyes to a world that looks so much different through the lens of a camera. Kahlil attended Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts (EMCVPA) where he minored in Photography after participating in a one year leisure programme; he graduated with a Diploma in Visual Communication. After graduating Kahlil was eager to share his love and knowledge of photography and so leapt at the opportunity to have his own leisure programme at (EMCVPA).

Following many memorable years at (EMCVPA), Kahlil went on to work as Graphic Designer and Corporate Photographer at Advantage General Insurance Company Limited and NCB Jamaica Limited where he is currently employed. He has created marketing tools such as advertisements, print and web-based content, as well as, content for internal corporate consumption.

Kahlil’s work as a Photographer has not been limited to the corporate world. His extensive portfolio includes weddings, family portraits, landscape, flora and fauna and to some extent fashion photography. His true passion however, is in his personal works, his series and studies. His current focus is on the study of Jamaican Humming Birds in flight ('Hummingbirds of Ja'). He has done series on the desolate beach, the pregnant belly and the female form which may be viewed at www.kahlilhfrancis-portfolio.com You can find Kahlil on Facebook: www.facebook.com/kahlil.h.francis .
