Ken Jones was 16 years old, a sophomore in High School and an exceptional Science student. At some point during that year he discovered Art, in particular he discovered the mediums of charcoal
and clay. He decided he wanted to pursue a career in Fine Art. "My dream was to become a sculptor". Ken received his first scholarship to study Art from the Chrysler Museum School of Art at the
age of 17. Somewhere in High School between his Junior and Senior year his Art instructor introduced him to Photography.
"The first time I saw a picture materialize on a blank sheet of Photographic
paper and realized it was the same image that I had in my mind's eye when the shutter was pushed there was no turning back, I was in Love for life".

"A photograph is much more than
just a memento, some souvenir to remind us of a Day at the Beach. A photograph is an exact record of a slice in time, it's a small piece of real life captured at the very second it occurred. It is
perhaps one of the most important tools for the recording of History that has ever been devised, and it's the Love of my life, it's my passion, my purpose, my gift from God".
