Thank you for visiting Kenneth May Photography!
What has been your quality stop for Sports Photography in the Tri-State over the last 12 years-be it with traditional Team Day shoots or exciting Game Time Action, now is your only stop for all of your special event and lasting memory photography needs.
Over the years, more and more individuals, families and organizations have requested my style of photography for more than just sports. In 2007, I began to expand my photography services to include Modeling, Engagement, Senior, Formal Studio, and Family Portraits. In addition, I began to assist organizations with their Corporate Event, Head Shot and Celebration photography as well.
No matter the size of your important occasion, I specialize in capturing the wonder and feel of the event- be it for the scrap booking craze, formal prints, portfolio shots, canvas artwork, Corporate- magazine/web/marketing material or to be used in the creation of custom crafted coffee table books.
Although I have been a photography enthusiast since my early childhood days, back then using a hand me down Kodak-and then shooting high school football games on the field and selling the photographs to parents, my real focus for developing a photography business started while attending the Ohio State University. With my trusty Pentax K1000, I would 'sneak my way' onto the sidelines and take as many pictures as I could before being asked by stadium security to go back to my seat. I would then sell my photos to students and others who, by word of mouth, learned of my talent and "adventures onto the field".
During college, I also developed an interest in sportscar racing (24 Hours of Daytona, Petit Le Mans and 12 Hours of Sebring to name a few) and started a website business centered around racing photography and reporting. Over the years, the business grew to include shooting for professional drivers/teams, manufacturers, and sponsors in and around the auto racing world. At the same time, I began to receive more and more requests to shoot local sports - from youth leagues and travel teams- to high schools in the Tri-State. In 2010, I was honored to be contracted with Ohio State University to shoot one game as a "trial run" and have been the Official Photographer for the Alumni Magazine and their website covering every home, away, and bowl games ever since. Over the last 6 years, have increased my involvement with the University to also shoot for Archie Griffin, University Events, University social media sites, and now also the Athletic Department. This year, I also became an official photographer for the University of Evansville athletic department for men's and women's basketball, and will add baseball and soccer as well.
Now days though, although I am still active with all facets of sports photography in the Tri State and plan to continue to shoot for Ohio State, along with selective race tracks, and major sporting events throughout the country, my services now include venues from local political work...to corporate work...to formal portrait and senior photography settings. My photography continues to be used in various magazines and with corporate marketing material, as my unique style of capturing the feel of the event can be seen in every photograph.
Last year, I was contracted to cover my first Civil War reenactment, and although with only 3 reenactments under my belt, I am honored for 2016, to be selected to photograph the 3 day Gettysburg reenactment, the largest reenactment of its kind.
I use all professional Canon digital equipment and professional lenses to ensure the highest quality of work, my large inventory of lenses includes the powerful Canon 500mm L lens, so no exciting action is too far away!
