Ken Joanel or ShotByKenfolk, Portrait and Lifestyle Photographer From Hamilton Graduated From Steinert High School and started with real estate photography when I got an internship with Richardson Commercial through the schools work program. Growing up in the suburbs with a single mother who had to work long hours I was raised by my friends and their parents, of course most being more privileged than I. Seeing resources given and not used by my peers only made me want to obtain them and give them to kids like myself who will appreciate them before the outside influences steer them down a wrong path but towards a path of self preservation. Vision I see my work taking me is to stable environments with resources being used properly, offices and buildings shaping the culture whether it be in the visuals or sounds. So recording and photography studios available with a greater marketing campaigns and platform to get the products out professionally and curated by artist with the brands vision in mind.
I CHOSE PHOTOGRAPHY BECAUSE I SEE MYSELF DIRECTING CREATIVE VISUALS BEHIND CAMPAIGNS, CAPTURING KEY MOMENTS HELPING STEER THE VISION OF DIFFERENT BRANDS AND USING THEM TO MARKET IT TOWARDS THE TARGET AUDIENCE.
