Ken Kaminesky Biography
I’m a self-made billionaire inventor, I’ve worked at NASA and CERN. Explored 8 continents including Atlantis. Won 2 Nobel prizes, a Pulitzer, six Grammys and People magazine’s sexiest man alive 3 years running. I’m currently working on developing cold fusion reactors that will provide free clean, sustainable energy to all mankind for centuries ahead.
Oh, and I also take photos in my spare time.
At least this is how I’d like my bio to read. :-)
Truth is that I have a very cool job. Over the last fifteen years, I have shot commercial lifestyle images for stock photography agencies such as Jupiterimages, Corbis, and Getty Images. I’ve been lucky to work with some amazing people, both at these agencies and on my teams of models, producers, stylists, and assistants. I’ve had my photos published for editorial and commercial purposes all over the world and have had some great commercial clients along the way as well. In the last five years, I switched to shooting travel images and fell in love with photography all over again.
In 2016 I co-founded Discovery Photo Tours so that I could share my love for travel and photography with avid photo enthusiasts from all over the world. Savouring art, food, history, and culture with tour groups in places like Jordan, Italy, and Iceland is one of the most rewarding aspects of my work.
My travel & photography blog has become part of my journey to see the world in a new way and I’m pleased to share that vision with you. I love what I do, as well as the people and places I photograph. Each person and every place has its own story.But sometimes the best stories are the ones you star in.
So here I am on the road to discover the world around me and to take a whole lotta photos while I’m at it. There is a big world out there and it is calling.
See you out there.
Join me on the adventure of a lifetime in places like Iceland, Jordan, Tanzania, Japan, and more!
