Tom Kelley was retained to photograph the stars. His very first assignment was to shoot Ingrid Bergman, who was unknown at the time, but that was not to remain so for long. Soon MGM and Warner Bros. were added to the client roster. His files are full of classic portraits and early advertising shots with Hollywood’s biggest stars of the time. Some of his subjects were: Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford, Henry Fonda, Jane Russell and Gene Kelly. Following a long and profitable career helping to publicize motion picture personalities, Kelley drifted into the commercial and advertising photography field where he has remained as one of the leading celebrity photographers in the business.
