Honored by Chiara Scuro's first Pay it Forward Friday
"My first Pay it forward, goes to Yenra Photography. Ken is fantastic to work with & is one of the photographers I've worked with who is completely committed to & in love with the art of photography, & it shows in his work. He is nothing but graceful, kind & thankful to the models & the events he works with. Shooting with him has always been amazing & I've never met a photographer who has expressed so much joy in getting to do what he does. I'm always looking forward to working with Ken & he always provides cosplayers & the cosplay community with beautiful photos ♥ Check him out, give him a "like". I promise you won't be disappointed." -- Chiara Scuro's post on Facebook
Covering events boosts Facebook page traffic and reach
It was a wonderful experience to be serve as an official photographer at Spoutwood - I took over four thousand photos of as many wonderful people as I could - yet that was still only a fraction of how great it was.

Depth in photography means talking about character and costume construction before the photo part. Then to research, reflect, and write. So the pictures don't stand alone, but be in the context of story, meaning.
Beauty is always inner first, never outer only
Beauty is a blend of symmetry and difference which may be disrupted by imposing uniformity in post processing. Also, beauty is not as much seen by the eye as felt by the heart. To convey it requires sensitivity to and reverence for the whole person, most of all the mind. Therefore conversation is the best beginning for a photoshoot. To be only superficial caps the flow which wants to happen when a person's limitless depth of thought and emotion converges with an already attractive exterior - this is the moment when I press the shutter. My post processing is an act of memory as I travel back to the timeless moment when I beheld that convergence, the glimmer of inner and outer beauty in unity, and that is my photography.
