Outstanding work!

Very beautiful, special and original portfolio.

I find most of your images perfectly lit, immaculately composed and professionally executed.

J C , November 12, 2003; 08:28 P.M.

THIS IS GREAT STUFF

Ken, I haven't been to active here lately, got some other stuff going on. But stopped by to see what you have been up to. I must say, your body of work displayed here is top of the line stuff. congrates on getting the "look" everybody strives for. Great stuff Jim Christensen

Ricardo Tavares , November 26, 2003; 09:40 A.M.

Hi Ken. You have some obsession for eggs right? loll (just joking) I love you work. You're a pro. Great Job.

Landrum Kelly , December 08, 2003; 10:54 P.M.

Ken, this is a wonderful portfolio. You manage to make all of your photos so clean and crisp and elegantly simple, as if they had all been done in a studio--but most are not, and that is what makes them all the more astonishing.

Larry Magnes , December 10, 2003; 10:22 A.M.

Wow!

Mary Watkins , December 28, 2003; 01:59 P.M.

If I commented on each of your photo's individually my reaction is exactly the same; stunning!

kristin morales , January 13, 2004; 07:15 P.M.

eggceptional!

Your work stands on its own. Amazing creativity here...would love to have you share your talent with the kids I teach at the Y!

Today is the 11th of February ... some kind of a special day. (-;.... First photo of yours I remember I took notice of was the one with the nailed egg (gosh ... won't tell you here of my first thoughts when I saw that one) but my interest for your photos grew very much. I know you consider having fun and the interacting as very important but you can't hide that you at the same time are very serious when you are working. In some of the photos I see so much love and tenderness ... To use your own words: it is not only in front of the camera something is going on .. it is also behind the camera (special moments)… and I guess something is going on every time you “shoot”. However I miss one special photo here in your portfolio .. and now you can wonder on which one that can be (-; ( one you have removed). To make it short : you are a photographer knowing what you want to present and how to present it. And it is always a pleasure to look at your photos.

Black sheep can produce some of the finest work.

Ken, your portfolio reminds me of this quote by Edward Weston...."Anything that excites me for any reason, I will photograph; not searching for unusual subject matter, but making the commonplace unusual." [from The Tao of Photography]

Ken Williams ... , February 11, 2004; 09:24 P.M.

Ken

Funny old world, a fellow from Oz can tell a Texan that he has seen his work, and survived. Never having met but having a kindred spirit, under one banner....photography !

Ken, you truly "Paint with Light" Not by the book or any of that rot, but from your big fat colesteral laden heart. You may have a lone star on your flag, but the true stars are beings like you that make Texas great! From the "Pan Handle" to the Gulf, a Great place to be from eh ? "Shucks Ma'm, you must be the new school marm ? Ken, what the hell IS a marm ?????? I gots ta know Was it five or six, punk......(How much for the whole darn thing, could use them in my folio here in Oz, struth)..Note to your self to print up some more of that funny Yankee Green stuff..*R*

Simanta Datta , June 25, 2004; 11:37 A.M.

Vu Mai , September 20, 2004; 01:53 A.M.

I find that your photos are some of the finest at this site. The fact that you use film as a media further enhances their values. Your professionalism serves as a great inspiration for an amateur like myself. Thank you for sharing.

Heather Flaherty , September 22, 2004; 01:54 A.M.

I Love all your work. I Love the warm, muted colors of your "barn" staged photos. But, I am SO INSPIRED by your Landscape photos. I want to move so I can wake up to a world where the opportunity to see those scenes are a regular part of my existence. BREAtHTAKING!!!

Wim Ipenburg , November 03, 2004; 11:00 A.M.

Ken, I follow You sometimes since a vew month. Your portfolio is growing fast but your quality is growing at high speed! You have already a lot of masterpieces here!!!! Wim.

Edwin Mendoza , November 30, 2004; 11:41 P.M.

Great

Ken, Your work is perfect. My interest in your slipper picture continues, remember the offer A new pair for a print.

Philip Turner - San Francisco, CA , December 13, 2004; 08:11 P.M.

Outstanding Portfolio Too

Besides starting that great thread on historical image posting, you really have a fabulous portfolio too! I am quite happy to have stumbled on to you (slight pun intended)! I'd like to add you to my "noteworthy photographic" (interesting people) people on my own workspace. I feel like I might miss another great thread or "happening" if I don't keep in touch!

Ken Williams ... , December 14, 2004; 05:12 A.M.

Ha - funny Philip - Apparently we have been neighbors for sometime here on PN - have maked marked you as peculiar for being interested in my me and my stuff - (-; - Looks like you have some very nice work on your end - I'll drop by and harass you soon ........ smile.

Edwin I certainly do remember and will see what I can do - thank you for your patience and interest - the Furry Slipper saga continues btw - stay tuned over the next month or so - their odyssey continues ...... (-;

Wim I so appreciate you taking the time and an interest - thank you very much.

Heather you are too kind - thank you for having a look ...... smile

Katja Faith , December 28, 2004; 03:13 P.M.

8/8

I wish I could add something new about the greatness of your work but.. unfortunately I can just admire your portfolio silently. Thanks a lot for the pleasure!

Paula Grenside , January 01, 2005; 11:02 A.M.

Came back

and noticed a recurring theme in your portfolio: eggs: eggs bound to fall, broken eggs, Halloween eggs, trapped eggs. There seems to be a strong symbolism attached to these images. Whatever it is, they are really well done.

Ken Williams ... , January 07, 2005; 09:05 P.M.

Thank you Trevor - it's nice to meet you ...

Myrna - thank you and I'm glad you enjoyed it ...

Katja - you added alot just by taking the time - thank you ....... (-;

Paula - glad to see you - there is much symbolism and they mean different things to different people as well .......... Pre-occupation the the reproductive processs perhaps - I'm not sure ........ (-;

Luis Saavedra , January 08, 2005; 05:27 A.M.

Fantastic portfolio!! Congratulations

Carola Onkamo (former Lundmark) , March 12, 2005; 10:32 A.M.

Its a joy to look at your photos. They are gorgeous. You have a wonderful portfolio. Its top notch all the way.

Ghiga 2 , April 26, 2005; 06:09 A.M.

A good portfolio, Ken. I like very much your photos.

Philip Turner - San Francisco, CA , May 14, 2005; 05:03 A.M.

Even More Meticulous...

After seeing your latest image postings I have come to the conclusion that you are even more meticulous with your studio environment than I am! That's a complement by the way. I used to have a photo teacher who ingrained upon me the fact that when you're in the studio you are God! You bring and create the light, you create the plain of visual existence, and the firmament of the background. The technical perfection and meticulousness tell me that you rule with an iron fist in the studio, everything just where it should be.

Thanks in large part to a number of PN commentaries I find myself trying to break my original grip on my control of the studio environment. I have found it to be very worthwhile to let things happen. Create things that go against the natural order of technical rule. I should tell you about my experimenting with Drano and film processing...but that's another story. My challenge to you is to occassionally break the rules, intentionally. I might be full of shit, but it has been very eye-opening for me, all laxatives aside. Stellar imagery still.

Ken Williams ... , May 14, 2005; 08:32 P.M.

Lol - Drano - Philip I hear you loud and clear ....... so pleased you took the time to stop by - and motivate me to to lighten up and let things flow naturally sometimes - wonderful comment - thank you .... (-;

Larry - coming from you that means alot - thank you ...

Ghiga - thank you for your kind words - they mean alot too .... (-;

Steve J Murray , May 15, 2005; 12:41 P.M.

Wonderfully creative stuff, especially the tabletop setups. Thanks for looking at my folders too.

Ken Williams ... , May 26, 2005; 12:53 A.M.

Thank you very much Steve - I usually put alot of time and thought into those - thanks for mentioning it ...... (-;

Leslie Battjes , September 29, 2005; 08:56 A.M.

Ken,

I just took a nice long stroll through your portfolio and had a wonderful time! I love how you work with the same basic setup at times and change it just slightly in lighting, props, or colorization and it becomes something totally new. I need to remember this lesson. Keep up the great work. I'll definitely be back to see what you've been up to! :) Leslie

Ken Williams ... , October 02, 2005; 11:04 A.M.

Leslie I very much appreciate you taking the time - it means alot - thanks ...... (-;

Working with the same basic set-up is often due to financial necessity. However I'm moving this weekend and the new place (an old house) has an upstairs room with 3 windows instead of the usual 1 window I'm accustomed to - opens a whole new world of possibilities I'm thinkin' ...... I may use this as motivation to take the next step in my photography - making a living .... (-;

Heather Flaherty , October 09, 2005; 02:45 P.M.

On your using it to 'makin a living'. I would LOVE to see that for you! I will buy!!!!!!!

Ken Williams ... , October 18, 2005; 08:04 P.M.

Thanks for your encouragement Heather - and folio comments are so special too - thanks for that ... (-;

Jim Stauffer , October 19, 2005; 07:57 P.M.

BRAVO!!!

You're a great inspiration!

Leann Greene , November 07, 2005; 12:43 P.M.

ahemmmm...

I have been doing alot of "pondering" to come up words worthy of your portfolio. One thing that stands out is that you at current time have less than 100 shots displayed and have covered so much ground in them.Very impressive feat(hee hee not feet). Diverse in subject but similar in quality-high. You have mentioned shooting for only a few years now but your grasp of the concepts goes much deeper than that and I am greatful that you share your work and ideas. Abintra is still one of the most exhilerating photos I have ever seen. Thank you Wrangler,Cowboy,Tex,Ken :-)

Ken Williams ... , November 07, 2005; 01:19 P.M.

pondering ... BAS

(-;

Ken Williams ... , November 09, 2005; 02:29 P.M.

Pondering ..

Wonderful comment - Thanks Leann ...

Portraits have always been a 'hole' in my efforts. In taking time to ponder your comment - and scan thru the attached folio - it occurred to me that the Native American Pow Wow shots are all 'portraits' - my own vision perhaps - of how to portray their spiritual, as well as, physical side.

Point Being -- Thank you for the words that gave me pause to ponder - and realize I might just be filling that gap afterall ... (-;

Btw - I had no idea you liked 'Abintra' so much - it would please me greatly if you left your 'X' there someday ....... smile.

Leann Greene , November 09, 2005; 02:39 P.M.

Abintra...

How embarassing... I honestly thought I had already! Well anyways I have now :-)

Leann Greene , December 07, 2005; 06:07 A.M.

I'm back like a bad rash... I wanted to express how you take a genre' and push it,expanding it's definition. You have done this with your still life(esp the eggs) and your motion blur are exceptionaly original. You made the blur the subject-all of it.There usually is a stationary subject also but you shook it all up.That's really something.

B Aldrich , December 18, 2005; 06:26 P.M.

So many great one that I hadn't seen before, Ken! Wonderful collection.

Todd Kowalski , January 15, 2006; 12:56 A.M.

Well, Well, Well

Ken, I must say that the "thread" on your "Abintra" shot turned into quite an amusing yarn....I think you should be a writer too. With your good talent in photography and your obvious talent for writing....give up your day job! Well Done, Regards, Todd

Ilse P , January 17, 2006; 07:24 A.M.

And I followed you back here (with a little detour via Leann to trace you down... ;o)

And I can't say I regret doing so! I have been wandering around in your portfolio, wondering at and pondering over what I saw. Left me behind quite amazed to be honoust. Even to that extent that I feel I now definitely need an English course to be able to express myself decently and not to fall back on general words of praise since they would do your work wrong (you have no idea how many times I already dived into my dictionary to be able to get this much down, but then again from the wrong word choices you might have guessed already... ;o). I'll have to come back here to be amazed a little more (problem is your photos render me speechless, which is quite problematic to write down comments... :o)

Ken Williams ... , January 20, 2006; 02:03 A.M.

Leann - you're really something .... (-;

*Oasis* buddy - very glad to see you here - very glad ...

Todd I'm very glad you enjoyed that - true story ... thank you for mentioning it.

Ilse your extra effort on the English is appreciated - thank you very much.

Elisabeth Jordan , February 19, 2006; 04:40 P.M.

Train tracks........

Greetings, way too early in the morning. I love your Bio. pic of the tracks.......and did not see it in your images above to post on it individually.

It reminds me of the Cat Stevens song, "Peace Train".....(now that is awhile.......back!) if I remember correctly it goes something like this: Cause out on the edge of darkness, there rides a peace train Oh peace train take this country, come take me home again Now I've been smiling lately, thinking about the good things to come And I believe it could be, something good has begun

I think Cat ended up becoming a monk and finding "peace" that way. As for peace for our country...I yearn for that. Maybe this past election has us on our way. Thank you again, for posting the train track image. Very nice.

Ken Williams ... , November 12, 2006; 04:24 P.M.

Hey You ... !

Big Smile - wayyy big ... (-;

Thank you Roxanne

Elisabeth Jordan , November 13, 2006; 06:33 A.M.

en"light"enment

Ken, There usually seems to be a play with light or rather a search/yearning through the light. Many of your pictures utilize this...light at the top of the stairs, candle light on the dresser, abintra light, sun light, those eggs, over and over again you take your audience beyond the image with the light. Even with this new bio pic (which we know will change any moment) uses the light to ponder who is the light turned on for. Though I am thinking of the motel 6 add of always leaving the light on. ah...guiding lights...It is always a joy to come back and wander in your special path of photographic en"light"enment...elisabeth ;)

Seven Stuartson , November 30, 2006; 12:05 A.M.

Thanks for the visit a while back, Kenster : you might know I hang out elsewhere these days so didn't see it until a few minutes ago.

I am better for having been exposed to your delicate treatment of light; the motion of the dancers is something I shall always associate with you. We've had heaps of fun on this site in the past - I still pop in occasionally, but am mainly on the place I cannot link except to say that the link is in my Community Member Page next to Personal Home Page should you ever wish to drop in for a short sharp shock. (We have great coffee wenches there!)

Take care & keep shooting!

That?s when I first felt I that knew enough of you and your work to leave a comment in my native Scot's dialect. In Scotland 'The Big Yin' is considered as the Dude, the Man or El Gringo! He is looked upto and respected as a clan leader, an elder with impeccable life experience or a spiritual guide. It is also said by Native American Indians that to understand people you must first walk through life in their moccasins to understand where they are coming from or what they are about, you have walked a long path in the slippers of many minds and through your wanderings learned and become greatness. I am honoured to have seen development & growth through your work for in a short time you have painted a picture of the world and those in it with such clarity and beauty which in turn helps me to do my work with hope.

I hope that all your dreams aspire for 2007.

Hi Ken!

Susan Stone recommended I stop by to see your stuff - sure am glad I did! My goodness, your images are wonderful! They have a good vibe! I was particularly interested in your still life images as that's what I'm currently attempting - would love it if you would stop by and give me your honest opinion! You've gained a new fan! My deepest respect for your beautiful work. Best Regards,

Your still lifes are simply stupendous, oh fellow web foot! The fact you shot most of them with analog rather than digital film is nothing short of miraculous. I am awed. Emmanuel.

Hi

Hi Ken, you asked if I'd cropped my photo Home with the Catch. I really enjoyed scrolling through your site- seeing your many great photos and reading all the nice comments fellow P.Ners have sent to you. I cropped only minimally. There was no sky, only dark trees above the boat houses. Cheers. Denise

A true talent! Very well presented work. Being a relatively new member of PN myself, all I can say is that the real charisma lies in boldness, expression and experimentation sometimes. I am learning just by looking, and is people with excellent work like yours that make it possible. Best regards.

Kenneth Fugate , December 02, 2007; 08:31 A.M.

Hello Friend!

Well here it is another year is passing away and we are coming into the holidays. I think time starts to go faster as we get older, it was just yesterday I wished my friends Happy Holidays and here it is again the end of a year. The holiday lights are starting to be put on some of the trees here in Dallas, we were out last night and some were lighting the trees. I wish for you all a holiday season with family and friends, after all is said and done all we have is each other.

I want all of you to know just what your comments and ratings on my work means to me, your words are my motivation, my drive to discover, to learn this art that we all love, thank you for taking time and thank you for caring about my works. At the same time thank you for letting us see your world, our lives are so much the same, we all care about our families and friends and we all share the same things, maybe someday our photos will help make for a lasting world peace. May you and your family be blessed this season.

Happy Holidays and Happy Shooting

Ken

Unbelievable...what some people will do to get folks to look at their portfolio...I am not sure why you put all those other people in your bio pic....when just my mug would draw people from far away to browse your wonderful portfolio...

I really like you B&W work as much as I like all of the rest of your art...

I keeping trying to add my Pic to the 80s image of yours...not sure people could handle the fact I have not aged one single day...sort of like a good bottle of....? Lucky for me I already looked 50 yrs old 28 years ago...!

All kidding aside...when do you plan on adding more work to this portfolio? I am ready for it...? I enjoy your images as much as your humor...ok, a little more. Thanks for keeping up with your good work...and for bringing peace to this goofy ass world we live in with your artful eye and your humor...thanks...juan

You sure have a unique way to play around with a girl and make her laugh!!! Thanks for a well timed hearty, belly laugh! :o) Hope life is treating you well. Cheerio, Iren

Hi Ken,

thanks to PN I discovered your wonderful portfolio rich of excellent shots, so various and interesting. I'm a beginner and I like to study good photographers as you are to improve or trying to. I'll be back to see more. Ciao.

man, you have a really great portfolio Ken....i especially like your still life and motion shots...looks like you've been at this awhile

Ken Williams ... , December 15, 2009; 03:46 A.M.

Hi Thom and thanks - after a 25 year 'break' from photography I've shot film for 4 years and digital now for 4 more years ....

I'm glad you like the still-lifes and the motion folder - one I have complete control over and the other almost no control over. Thanks again for stopping by ....

Yves Petronin , February 20, 2010; 08:13 A.M.

Very interesting portfolio... Lots of creativity. Very attractive studies, particularly the "moving" pictures. Magnificent black and white shots.....

Barcelona

Ken, thanks for your kind comments on one of my photos.  Yes, Barcelona is a pretty neat place...hard to pick which spot to go to for a photo shoot as there are so many nice areas.  Just had a look at your portfolio and WOW, what a cross section of great stuff!  Your still lifes are exceptional and have motivated me to give that a try to improve my general skills with seeing and with light.  Thanks! 

Daniel Joder , January 04, 2013; 04:11 P.M.

Thanks once again for visiting, Ken. I looked through your B&W stuff and see that I've a ways to go. I love the sharpness, the tonal range, the contrast and the composition (good eye!). Thanks for the inspiration!
