Ken has been interested in photography from an early age but didn’t get serious about it until he was in college and his father gave him an old Leica film camera with a single 50mm lens. He took several courses in photography after college and studied the great landscape photographers of the early 20th century. Ken has taught workshops in photography and has worked with such notable photographers as Galen Rowell, John Fielder and John Shaw. He has exhibited his work in various venues and galleries in the Roaring Fork and Eagle Valleys.
Ken’s primary interests over the years have been western landscapes and rivers. Lately he has begun focusing on macro photography, abstracts, and Astro photography.
Ken lives with his wife Paula and their little schnauzer Walter in rural Garfield County south of Glenwood Springs. Ken has degrees in geology and biology and a graduate degree in education and philosophy and has recently taught classes in watershed science and water law/history at Colorado Mountain College. Ken has also worked as a Land Surveyor, engineer, river conservation advocate, writer and wilderness guide.
