Co- Founder of Discovery Photo Tours / Pro Photographer / Tour Leader
Ken Kaminesky is a co-founder and the owner of Discovery Photo Tours. He’s a veteran commercial travel photographer, Formatt-Hitech Signature Artist, the travel photography columnist for Outdoor Photographer magazine, and an entrepreneur with over twenty years of experience in the photography industry. His work has been featured worldwide in numerous commercial and editorial publications, including the New York Times and on the cover of National Geographic. His passion for travel and the incredible landscapes and people he encounters along the way are the inspiration for his popular blog, and the other publications he writes for.
Throughout his travels, Ken seeks to capture images and stories that will inspire and motivate people to step out of their front door and embrace adventure. As one of the founders and tour leaders at Discovery Photo Tours, he gets the chance to share his love for travel and photography with avid photo enthusiasts from all over the world. Savouring art, food, history, and culture with tour groups in places like Jordan, Italy, and Tanzania is one of the most rewarding aspects of his work.
His favourite place in the world is always his next destination. He believes that each place has a unique story that will inspire others, which he aims to capture in his images.
He doesn’t usually talk about himself in the third-person.
