In January of 2011, Kel was fortunate enough to photograph a Red Shouldered Hawk at the Callaway Gardens Raptor Center. This gorgeous photo was later picked up by Tamron for usage in an online ad campaign for sites such as NatGeo.com, Audubon.com and OutdoorPhotographer.com as well as featuring it on one of their 60th Anniversary Posters. Tamron also wrote an article about Kel’s love for nature photography and her devout use of the Tamron 70-300mm Di VC lens.
