About Ken

Whether shooting for a client or for my own love of photography, landscape or cityscape, interiors or products, I focus on capturing that sense of place with its distinct character and message.

When I was little, the geek in me became fascinated by cameras—how they work, what they showed, and what they didn’t. To me, every photograph is a story. Inspired by the Super 8 movies and slides my parents took to document our summer trips, I learned early on how photos tell a tale. To tell these stories in the best way possible, my go-to equipment evolved from my favorite Kodak 110 to a collection of prefessional gear, specialty lenses, and innovative, cutting-edge software.

The subjects that inspire me are architecture, hospitality, travel and landscape, and fine art photography. When a scene catches my eye, I first figure out why, so I understand the basic premise of the photo, and then, the story I capture presents itself simply. I enjoy the collaboration process, bringing different perspectives together—the client’s goals and messaging blended with my expertise at what makes a good image and how to best show off places and spaces. The result is a finished product we are all happy with.

I’m based in Portland Oregon, available for shoots throughout the U.S. and internationally.
