“Render Loyalty is the intersection of my greatest passions — photography, storytelling, and conservation.

I’ve trained my lens on some of the world’s most beautiful creatures in the hopes that my art will evoke compassion and inspire change for these threatened species.” - KT Merry


Photographer, Explorer, Conservationist

Since childhood, animals have been my best friends and conservationists have been my heroes. My pets included: dogs, cats, rabbits, gerbils, a rat I nursed through a tumor removal, and a pet goat named Lucy who accompanied me on horse-riding lessons. I wanted to be a zoologist.

As it turns out, I wear cameras around my neck instead of a stethoscope. But my love for all living creatures has not faded, and helping animals is still my heart’s greatest desire.

That’s why I created Render Loyalty with my husband, business partner, and travel companion, Chad Keffer.

The Goal

By sharing the most magnificent wild animals, we aim to inspire a wider audience while supporting conservationists who protect them.

Thank you for joining us in supporting their efforts to save the planet’s vanishing species.

We bring the inspiring beauty of these animals into your home so that you can help contribute to their protection even from thousands of miles away.
