About Ken Skehan
There are no upcoming events
My interest in photography had been merely as an admirer of great pictures until 2005, when the opportunity to trek to Everest Base Camp arose, and I was inspired to try to capture the awesome splendour of the Himalaya. My photography tutor happened to be resident of a local camera club, and invited me to show my work on my return. When I did, it suggested that as I was raising money for charity, some of the pictures were saleable. My first exhibition took place over 2 nights and secured orders for 53 framed prints.
I was hooked! I now work commercially as a photographer as well as having a portfolio of other income earning roles. Whether work or play, I always attempt to produce images of some artistic merit in my pictures - not always easy when you're doing something like photographing airliner parts for a brochure!
But fine art photography is my favourite – I simply love making pictures that I think other people will like too. I call my these 'The YourSpace Collection'.
You'll see that I'm building a collection of abstracts inspired by nature. Some are reproduced exactly as nature presents them, the others are manipulated to various degrees into clear abstractions of the original subject.
All my large images are reproduced on Archival Grade, 100% Acid Free, PH Neutral paper – usually Hannemühle Photo Rag. If supplied framed they are professionally prepared by my superb supplier, Wallspace of Dursley & Cirencester.
The Mini Marvels collection prints are produced on high quality 300gsm Pinnacle Premium Lustre paper.
