Ken Kneringer – Photographer – Programmer – Web Developer
I have worn many hats over the course of my life. My first job was a cook at the Landmark restaurant in Milwaukee WI at the age of 14. Since then I have been a taxi driver, a bouncer, a truck driver, an air-conditioning service tech, a sound engineer, a real time programmer, and a few that I can’t remember. Photography was always an interest, but never a priority.
After seeing a book by Robert Hurth in a local camera store, the light bulb went on and in 1984 I opened a small studio in Philadelphia specializing in Boudoir Photography. The studio was great fun and gave me the opportunity to learn photography from some of the best in the business. I continued consulting and real time programming to help make ends meet at the studio.
In 1996 my programming took me to Indianapolis Indiana to do a multi million dollar project with Cummins Engine in Columbus Indiana. I closed the studio in Philadelphia, packed my bags and off I went.
After a short time I knew that I missed my studio and in 2000 I opened Studio K Photography with the intention of doing weddings. A couple of weddings later I knew that I wasn’t cut out to be a wedding photographer. I started to shoot high school seniors and by 2003 I knew that I had found what I was meant to do. After only a couple of years, Studio K became one of the premier Senior Portrait studios in the country.
Studio K Photography
While at Studio K Photography, I photographed hundreds of seniors over the years and had the honor of serving as the official photographer for Miss Indiana USA, Miss Teen Indiana USA, Miss Indianapolis, and many others. I am very luck to have worked with all of the amazing seniors, title holders and contestants from Miss Indiana, Miss Indiana USA, Miss United States, Miss America, National American Miss, Miss New York, Miss Illinois, Miss Kentucky, Miss Indianapolis, and many others.
Ken Kneringer – Instructor And Shooter
I also had the opportunity to work with some of the best organizations in the world. I was an instructor and fashion shooter for the Senior Portrait Artists, Seniors Ignite, Professional Photographers Of Indiana, Professional Photographers Of Ohio, Professional Photographers Of Illinois, Professional Photographers Of America, the Indianapolis Professional Photographers Guild, and After Dark. I also served as President of the Daguerre Club, and the Indianapolis Professional Photographers Guild.
Ken Kneringer – Achievements
I earned a Master of Photography Degree and a Photographic Craftsman Degree from the Professional Photographer Of America, and a Certified Professional Photographers Degree. I have been published on multiple occasions, and have had prints in both the PPA Showcase and the PPA Loan Collection.
Ken Kneringer – Current Projects
Today I still shoot senior pictures and pageant head shots for select clients. I am mainly working on helping other photographers build their businesses by offering instruction on shooting, retouch, and how to build their web presence. I am also building themes and plugins for WordPress designed specifically for photographers as well as custom websites for photographers. As a side project I am working on my first course for Udemy, I will keep everyone up to date on the progress.
