Ken's journey into photography began as a teen with his first film camera, a Minolta SRT100 and the world has not been the same.

Ken has won many awards and recognition for his work in wildlife, nature and human interest photography from the Iowa State University Extension in Marion County, Iowa as well as feature articles published in the local Pella Chronicle, the Knoxsville Journal Express and the Red Rock Lake News.


In 2020, Ken received a Certificate Award from the City of Tempe, AZ for his Instagrammy photo submission in the "Bridges of Tempe" category.
