 How did you come up with your business name? 

I started with kgPhotography but once I got on Facebook and saw how many there were I went ahead and changed it to my name Ken Gehring Photography.

 What brought you to photography? 

 I have always, even as a child, loved looking at photo albums.  I would spend hours going thru them.  I bought a decent camera when my children were young and then it just grew from there. 

 What do you like to shoot?  

I love fine art and conceptual works, seniors and weddings!

Who is you favorite muse?  

My niece Jessica Arnold is my muse.

 What is in your camera bag? 

 EOS 5D Mark III Digital Camera Kit with Canon 24-105mm f/4L; EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens; EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM Autofocus Lens; Canon EOS Rebel T3i Digital Camera W/EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens ; Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II Lens; Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT, Canon 430EX II Speedlite TTL Shoe-Mount Flash, Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens

I love shooting in the fall, the colors, the cooler weather after the heat of summer, and the holidays are just around the corner!

 what is your non photography related down fall? (example:  chocolate, soda..)  

All about good food!

 What is your most embarrassing moment at a shoot to date?  

When I put a senior on a rope swing and she almost hit a tree with her mom standing about 30 feet away watching!  I was knocked to the ground twice trying to stop her.  Never, NEVER again!  Safety first!

Don’t compare yourself to others.
