About Me

Hi. I'm Ken.

I love music.  I love listening to it, writing it, discovering it, recording it and, most of all, playing it. I started playing guitar when I was about 13 and started playing in bands in college. We wrote songs, made CDs and played lots and lots of shows. We got paid in gas money and sodas, and loved every second of it.

So what does any of this have to do with photography?

Well, as I got older, I found fewer and fewer neighbors willing to put up with my "this-one-goes-to-eleven" amplifier. So I had to find another way to survive as a right-brained person living in a left-brained world. And photography is what I found. Or rather, it found me. 

I can't say that I have always loved photography or that I used to secretly use my dad's Minolta or Polaroid cameras when I was a kid (because, frankly, he would have killed me if I had). But I will say this--I have developed the same love and passion for photography that I have for music.

And not surprisingly, I approach photography the same way I approached songwriting. I don't try to capture the perfect smile, portrait or scene. I try to capture emotion. And I try to do it in a way that resonates with people, just like a good song does.
