Alice Keeney graduated from the College of Charleston in 2004, where she balanced her time playing Division I Soccer, while earning a B.A. in English. She then attended the Speos Institute of Photography in Paris, one of the top five ranked photography schools in the world.
Keeney got her start in photojournalism with the Associated Press, covering news events in the coastal region of South Carolina for several years. Keeney's images have appeared on the front page of the New York Times, The Washington Post and USA Today, as well as many other newspapers both regionally and internationally. Her work has also been featured in Sports Illustrated and Newsweek magazines.
Her love of soccer led to an important collaboration photographing Grassroot Soccer, an NGO based in Sub-Saharan Africa which provides African youth with the life-skills to live HIV free. Special projects like this have allowed her the opportunity to travel to Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa.
Living in Charleston, South Carolina with her husband and young daughter, Alice focuses on shooting portraits for local brands, individuals and families. Her wedding photography reflects her background in photojournalism, capturing the most precious moments in an authentic, candid and timeless style. Currently, Keeney is a resident artist at Redux Contemporary Art Center in Charleston.
