Ken Woisard

Ken is a Graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in Commercial and Fine art Photography.

When he moved to Maine he worked for Downeast Graphics in the layout department. While there he made many friends in advertising, design and fine arts.

Early on, working from little cabin in East Blue Hill he did lab work for various clients including Woodenboat Magazine. Soon there after he bought an old schoolhouse a few miles away. It needed “a lot” of work but had big spaces. The second floor became his studio. The building was a little shaky at that time and whenever a long camera exposure was needed everyone had to stand perfectly still to avoid bouncing the floor. Later he built a studio with a cement floor which didn’t bounce. There was lots of advertising work in the 90’s and 2000’s and he also developed a large following in the fine art world photographing sculpture and paintings.

The accessibility of digital photography changed the business dramatically, for the good in many ways but impacted business. The advent of drones opened up a new and exciting field in which he adpoted early on. Ken got his FAA drone license in 2014. It is necessary to have for doing commercial drone work. In the Downeast Area of Maine there is ample work photographing art works,  high real estate and making beautiful pictures for his land trust clients. He feels honored to live in such a beautiful place and to be able to make a living doing what he loves most.
