Testimonials

“Kelley Ferro is a consummate professional. Traveling with Kelley and [her crew], was not only professionally rewarding, yet also a lot of fun. Their interaction with our A&K guests and with me and my A&K Egypt colleagues, their attention to all details and their ability to capture just the right information for USTOA’s purposes all added up a very successful endeavor. I am quite sure that that their mission was successfully fulfilled! My colleagues were thrilled with their participation, with heartfelt thanks to USTOA for selecting our company and Egypt during this time for this initiative.”

Phil Otterson
Phil Otterson President of Abercrombie & Kent on Kelley Ferro Productions series for USTOA

“We worked with Kelley to produce a series of videos on Saint Lucia. She helped us refine our vision for the project, took on hosting duties and executed the rollout of the videos. Her enthusiasm and storytelling really captured the spirit and beauty of the island. She is a delight!!”

“Kelley has an amazing way catching the spirit of a place and its people. We love the spontaneous story telling combined with a keen eye for our landscape, culture, and heritage. It’s just uplifting watching her videos.”

Michaela Ruoss
Michaela RuossMedia Coordinator North America, Switzerland Tourism

“Kelley Ferro, in my mind, is one of the true innovators of the hottest new social medium for the travel industry out there. “Vlogging” really is the next step for tourist destinations. Over the course of a few short days for filming and editing, Kelly was able to capture the real personality behind both our island and our resort. The value of a video blog far outweighs that of a “resort marketing film” because it offers a human perspective on the destination. Travelers these days are looking for opinion and social commentary, rather than the standard advertisement, when making a decision on where to invest in their vacation dollars. Kelley, for very little expense, crafted a compelling piece. So compelling that I wanted to take a vacation to my own resort after seeing it. If you are trying to create a film that really captures the authenticity of your destination and can deliver that message in a medium that will be viewed over and over again by the public at large, then one of Kelley Ferro’s video blogs is the best direction!”

“Kelley did a tremendous job acting as a host for our hotel videos. Not only did she take on hosting duties, but she was very organized and a pleasure to work with!”

“It was a real pleasure working with Kelley to film the videos for Wente Vineyards. From the very beginning to the end of the project, she was wonderful to work with and it was clear she’s an expert both behind and in front of the camera. We couldn’t have asked for better quality videos to capture the essence of Wente.”

Wahoo! 💥I cannot tell you how stoked I am that my entire Setouchi, Japan series is complete and launched! From the second I touched down in this sea focused region, I couldn’t wait to share it with you all. And now I finally can. #missionaccomplished 
I am not gonna lie, producing these travel series is not easy. Anyone that has even created a quick piece knows that shooting, hosting, editing, mixing, graphics, music, revisions—all of it— requires so much time, patience and experience to make it come together well. We finished shooting December 7th 2017, and here we are! 
This series was so comprehensive, that it took longer than usual, but I could not be more proud of what we created. 🤗
And Setouchi, I truly have a crush on you & hope more travelers fall in love with you like I did. 😘💋
I have a few more fun videos coming your way but this is my last BIG destination series for a while as I am taking a pause for my little one on the way👶🏼🤰🏼
As a travel host & video producer for 10 years now, I have to say I am proud to have gotten to this point. 
Series link in profile if you are curious! I appreciate any feedback too... thx for watching ✌🏽!

Eeek... 5 weeks till I meet my little beach babe! ⛱🤰🏼#35weeks 
At the time that this photo was taken, I was just 12 weeks... and I didn’t realize that now at 35 weeks, I actually do feel like I have a baby beach ball in front of me at all times! 
I cannot really comprehend what is ahead of us with her arrival—even though I am trying to prepare in every way possible (books, classes, friends, phone calls, doulas). But I DO know that I already love her infinitely & cannot wait to hold her hand & show her the world. 💋💕🤱🏼

When you all of a sudden you find yourself walking the streets in a kimono in Old Japan... #wasitalladream?🎎🍁🇯🇵
⌘
If you take 1 tip from my Japan series, go to the Setouchi region & stay in a #ryokan. These traditional style hotels will transport you to the Japan of centuries ago. They might be $$ but it worth it, even for one night. I highly recommend . It is unbelievably authentic, totally Japanese, yet very luxurious in that Old Japan way. Also, it is in THIS town, Kurashiki, which has a historical district that’s been unchanged for over 300 years. Seriously stunning. ⌘
Pro tip: Get up early to walk the streets & see the real side of this canal town, as the locals are waking up. It is perfect light for photos 📷, especially in the kimono you borrowed from your room... 🙊✌🏼More luxury how-to tips in my latest video!

Would you eat FUGU? 🐡🐡🐡
•
⇨What is it? 🤔 Fugu is puffer fish, usually prepared sashimi style. If it is prepared incorrectly, it can lead be toxic (it paralyzes the muscles & the eater dies of asphyxiation...😱). However, don’t worry, in Japan there are strict rules concerning fugu preparation & only qualified chefs whom have passed 3+ years of training are allowed to prepare and serve it.
🐡
Since we were in the Yamaguchi prefecture, known for their seafood, we stopped at this particular restaurant, famous for their fugu. What you see on the plate is the fugu sashimi plus the white globs... of blowfish testicles (!) a delicacy apparently. Hungry? 🤫To be honest, I did NOT try it. I actually trusted the restaurant fully but since I was pregnant during filming, it wasn’t worth the tiniest of risks. However all my companions did and they live to tell the tale! 💪🏼

#FridayThrills 🛩
I LOVE flying almost as much as much as love boats, so this seaplane flight was an A+ combo for me. 🤙🏼
First, cruising the clear waters of the Seto Inland Sea 🌊 then soaring over the sprinkling of green islands 🏝 & modern bridges. The perspective is nothing short of exhilarating.
I have to admit though, I am not always the MOST adventurous person (for instance, cliff jumping scares the 💩 out of me...😱) but I am always down to go UP in the air, in all kinds of crazy crafts- from microlights to gliders to maybe someday a 🚀... even though, it can terrify me at the same time.

People have asked me: what was my favorite part of my 2 week trip through Setouchi, Japan? ....and I am stumped. 🤔
Was it the 🛩 seaplane flight over the islands? Or was it biking along the coastline, past citrus groves 🍊on our way to a Buddhist temple? Maybe it was experiencing the A Bomb Dome & Peace Memorial Park? Or was it soaking it up in the natural Dogo Onsen hot springs🧖🏼‍♀️?
Each day was packed with so many meaningful experiences it is a tough choice. BUT I know that THIS moment- standing on the dock of Itsukushima Shrine before sunset, gazing at this Japanese icon, the floating Torii Gate ⛩ — will stay in my memory forever. It was only our first day of the shoot & I couldn’t believe that I was here- standing  on the dock of this unbelievable temple, built IN the water on the sacred isle of Miyajima.
🦌Friendly deer almost outnumber people on this mountainous little island, and we spent the day on kayaks, aerial trams, walking the village & filming on the mountain peak. 
What a first day in Japan 🇯🇵
