He's Number 1
University Photographer Ken Bennett has done it again, garnering an award for a photographic portfolio exemplified by the gorgeous image you see above. Earlier this month the Council for Advancement and Support of Education named him Photographer of the Year, honoring his work in the annual national competition in which portfolios are judged on creative visuals, good technical quality, appropriateness and how well the photography expresses the institution's mission. The latest accolade comes on the heels of his Master of the Profession award from the University Photographers' Association of America last year.
Any photographer might be bored after nearly two decades of shooting scenes from the Quad or graduation. Not Ken. He is always looking to top his best efforts. He arrives before daybreak or sets up at dusk to capture a perfect Wake Forest moment in perfect light. I'm proud of faculty and staff who continually strive for excellence. Ken is one of those people. I encourage you to see his winning portfolio.
