Kenneth Graff has spent the last half century as a photographer. His first job as a professional photographer was for a portrait studio, and his career took him to the staff of the District Attorney of New York City as a crime scene photographer, and eventually as the chief staff photographer Union Carbide Corporation, a job that lasted more than three decades and took him to every corner of the globe, from Armenia to Zimbabwe.
After over 30 years at that position, Ken decided to retire. But retirement did not mean putting down the camera – it meant picking up the computer and exploring digital fine art printmaking. Ken created and sold many original works of art – limited edition prints. Over the next several years, he learned the art of digital imaging and printing. Ken began to consult with photographers to teach them the how to use the technology to make good quality prints.
Ken now consults with photographers and enthusiasts in the art of digital imaging. He has been a speaker at photographic and computer groups throughout the country, showing the advantages of digital imaging.
