The Aurora

Behind the Shot with Ken Sklute

kenskluteheadshot-copyKen Sklute is a photographer in a very rare group. As a Canon Explorer of Light, Ken is one of less than 50 people that travel the world sharing their passion and expertise with people like you and I.

Ken is hard to pin down on what type of photographer he is, which makes sense I guess because he can shoot anything. He has enjoyed a diverse career photographing people, professional sports, architecture, weddings and landscapes. Ken spends much of his time photographing, teaching and lecturing both Nationally and Internationally. During his 42 year professional photography career he has accomplished the title of “Photographer of the Year” in 32 out of 42 years in the states of New York, Arizona and California. He is an educator and lecturer who also runs his own workshops. One of his passions is weather. He’s a balloon pilot, an avid storm chaser, and loves to chase the Aurora.

His list of accomplishments is amazing:

14 Kodak Gallery Awards
Kodak Gallery Elite award
WPPI Grand Award for Weddings
15 Fuji Masterpiece awards
Kodak Mentor
Epson Mentor
Adobe Influencer
Datacolor Expert
NIK Friends with Vision member

And his client list would scare most pros, with clients like:

National Hot Rod Association
U.S. Army
Sports Illustrated
Associated Press
National Dragster

Join me as I sit down with photographer Ken Sklute to discuss one of his shots of the Aurora Borealis. Ken discusses how he captures these types of shots, and shares so many great tips that I didn’t want the conversation to stop!
