From Innova's website: "In July of 2015, Innova broke ground on an affordable infill project in Point Breeze. Innova was selected to test the viability of the City's "Workforce Housing" initiative for building unsubsidized affordable housing on vacant City land. This project, located on four desolate blocks, was comprised of 15 high quality homes, built with Passive House detailing, designed for an ultra-low energy load and sold for an average of $239,000. By the end of 2016, Innova had developed and sold all 15 homes plus 4 adjacent parcels with market rate houses built to the same energy standards, transforming largely vacant blocks into now-vibrant communities."

Alesa Rubendall + Kat Kendon; Women In Architecture + Kendon Photography are proud to present PARKWAY PERSPECTIVES
MEETING PLACE: LOVE Park.
FREE. PUBLIC. RAIN OR SHINE.
To commemorate the centennial of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway join AIA Philadelphia’s Women In Architecture and architectural photographer Kat Kendon to shutterbug down the Parkway. At the beginning of the tour Kat will give a brief overview of the art of architectural photography. She will share general principles and strategies for lighting, framing, and other tips on how to elevate your shots. The tour will make stops at iconic landmarks to photograph and appreciate their respective contributions to the civic realm. Let’s capture the Parkway’s beauty as it turns 100 years young!
Photographers, hobbyist, photo enthusiasts, as well as SLRs and cell photo cameras are all welcomed. We will plan to end the walk at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Big news - Kendon Photography and Philadelphia AIA's Women in Architecture Committee are teaming up with Jane's Walk to offer a walking tour in Philadelphia. Details coming soon, but this event will be open to shutterbugs, architects, history buffs, fans of Jane's work, and everyone else who wants to tag along! I'm proud to be a female photographer in a male-dominated industry, proud to join forces with Women in Architecture, and even prouder to honor Jane Jacobs. Hope to see you on our Jane's walk.
We'll be at Temple University this week along with Ivan Guzman Photography to talk about the transition from college to freelance life, and the benefits of joining a professional organization like ASMP. Come say hi! We're also interviewing interns and assistants. Find us in Temple's Tyler School of Art Lobby from 10:30 on. See you there and come with questions for the experts!
Did you know Kendon Photography offers portfolio review workshops? We'll review your firm's portfolio, identify what makes a photo match your brand, and talk about how to get more mileage out of your images. This workshop can be done with a small group of decision makers, or expand to involve the entire firm. We can also review your digital asset systems and recommend archiving software from the most basic to state of the art. Contact us for more information and to schedule your session!
Wow! The lead-off image for L+G's website reboot is a Kendon Photography shot from 2017's Parking Day. Looking good guys!
"San Francisco does it. New York does it. So does Washington. As their housing costs have skyrocketed, pricing out the working poor and making it difficult for even middle-income people to find affordable housing, those cities have adopted laws requiring new developments to include subsidized units for low-wage workers.
Now, a City Council member wants Philadelphia to join the club.
The difference, of course, is that Philadelphia already has some of the cheapest housing stock of any big American city."

Excited to join the board of ASMP's Philadelphia Chapter!
Oooh la la, looking good AIAP!
I love a good mural shoot: that moment where arts and architecture come together. Check out what's been happening in the Spring Arts district with tours led by Conrad Benner of Streets Dept. It was a pleasure to document this one...colorful umbrellas make rainy days brighter!

It's been a pleasure to be the producer of this year's FIGMENT arts festival (along with an amazing partner, Bevan Weismann of New American Public Art.) FIGMENT is a free, inclusive, participatory arts event held in cities worldwide. Come down to check out the projects this weekend in Clark Park. I'll be there with a walkie-talkie in one hand and a camera in the other, find me and say hi! Everyone is welcome!
Thanks to Sense Us Philly for the photo and coverage of our project! They asked our production team, artists, and festival attendees how they choose to spend their hard-earned cash. Check out their blog for the responses.
Wow, I'm incredibly honored to have been selected as one of 25 people making a difference by South Philly Review. I started my volunteer work by partnering with local nonprofits as a photographer, but this one grew into something much bigger.
