Kenneth studied at Azusa Pacific University in Los Angeles gaining a degree in Interpersonal and Organizational Communication Studies. He also maintained an art minor with an emphasis on digital art and photography. During his time in school he was trained in InDesign, Photoshop, and Lightroom and continues to use it throughout his work today.
He has now owned and managed his own photography business for 9 years. In the early years, his work was focused on providing clients with high-quality photography. As collaborations expanded, so did the scope of work. He now works with organizations both locally and globally to provide photos, print design, stories for websites, books, magazines and support with social media campaigns. Kenneth is a natural creative who thrives in diverse settings and cross cultural experiences. He loves to travel and has now done photography in over 15 countries.
To me, one of the most important things when it comes to marketing and photography is branding. I love working with small companies and brands who are trying to find their vision and mission. I thrive in creating visual stories that drive people to local businesses and products.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many shoots with non-profits. What makes this special is that behind every visual, blog, or marketing campaign are real people whose lives are being changed for the better. My work as a photographer is to best tell this story in order for someone to feel inspired and give back to the organization. If this all goes well, the organization well now be in a better place and more capable of impacting more people in the future.
