Address: Washington, DC 20009, USA
Kendra Helmer's Message: I'm a Senior Communications & Outreach Officer for the U.S. Agency for International Development in DC.

I worked as a photographer/press officer for USAID in Haiti from May 2010-May 2011 and regularly travel back to Haiti to photograph projects and have served as the official U.S. government photographer for Secretary of State Clinton's visits. You can see my work in the Haiti albums here:

Previously, I was a newspaper journalist (photographer, reporter and editor) for 12 years.

I worked an editor and reporter/photographer based out of Japan and Italy for Stars and Stripes, an editorially independent newspaper that covers the U.S. military community. I later worked as a full-time shooter at papers in Illinois for three years.

My work has been published in newspapers including The Washington Post and The New York Times, and the books "Stars and Stripes: Serving in Iraq" and "A. Lincoln: His Illinois."

I'm available for corporate, wedding, lifestyle and editorial freelance projects.

Thanks for looking.
