If you’re walking the halls of Chelsea High School, attending a sporting event, or taking in an assembly or pep rally, you may notice one of Chelsea’s own taking in the surroundings through one of the four lenses of his Canon 60D camera. Chances are, that student is Kessler Phillips.

Phillips, a 10th-grader here at Chelsea, seemingly always has a camera in tow, taking photographs of anything and everything, primarily for publication in the school yearbook. But photography is not just a job for Phillips. It’s a passion.

“Taking pictures of the students and events around Chelsea High School lets me express my creativity in a way that not everyone is able to,” Phillips said. “I enjoy being able to take my imaginations and turn them into reality.”

Phillips likes to take individual pictures of different students, some on sports teams and some just doing things around Chelsea High School. He also goes to all the Chelsea events he can and takes shots of some of the most exciting things that happen around the school.

While Phillips still has two more years to photograph all that Chelsea High School has to offer, he already has plans for his future beyond the walls at CHHS, and they include continuing to take pictures.

“I know I will never stop photography,” he said. “As I go into college for business administration I think it will be good for extra money.”
