Photographer of the Week – Ken Kiefer
By Joseph Tepper, May 28, 2015 @ 06:00 AM (EST)

We’re willing to bet that we can guess the location of your underwater camera right now: It’s gathering dust on a shelf or in a suitcase while you wait for your next trip. That’s not the case for Ken Kiefer’s Canon 5D Mk III in an Ikelite housing

When not photographing sharks and dolphins in the Bahamas, Ken’s camera barely sees a dry day back in landlocked Texas. There, Ken extends his creativity beyond the bounds of the great blue yonder by photographing swimmers, family portraits and fashion shoots within the friendly confines of a local pool.

Ken’s portfolio is a reminder that underwater photography is much more than a scuba tank in a far-flung destination. So check out Ken’s impressively diverse portfolio, and then go dust off your camera. Seriously—it misses you.
