Meet Ken Kisch.
Imagine that your business trip is to hike Mt. Whitney in California. That’s where you could have found Ken recently, as he captured images for his scenery and nature focused photography. It’s a good thing that Ken is willing to “suffer” for his art. For the rest of us, it’s pure pleasure to lose yourself in his work on a more local basis.
His first camera was a Minolta SRT101 quite a few years ago and he hasn’t stopped taking pictures since. Ken explains: “I took that thing with me on every trip whether downtown Seattle or tramping around the backcountry. I took a break from it for a while when I was bitten by the video bug. The digital revolution brought me back to still photography and a Nikon D300. I love bringing home the nature I capture in my camera to look at, share and study”. His photos have appeared in the Seattle Times, Issaquah Press, Redmond Reporter, Mei Magazine, Signpost Magazine and a book cover.
Ken is that relatively rare thing, a Washington native, and he is a long time resident of greater Seattle with his great wife and two kids. “My love for photography comes from all the beauty I see every time I go into the Cascades to climb, backpack and cross-country ski. My mission is to bring it home in two dimensional media for you to enjoy and share with me in my excitement over the natural world “, he says.
Some know him by his alter ego as a software developer for the Boeing Company. The Sammamish Arts Fair artists know him not only as an artist but also as our hardworking volunteer webmaster. And you`ll want to know him as an accomplished art photographer and maker among us.
Visit with Ken at the upcoming Sammamish Arts Fair, October 13th and 14th. Fair details can be found at at http://sammamishartsfair.wordpress.com/ and Ken’s work is showcased on his website at www.kenkisch.com
