Bill Kennedy
I am a fine art and documentary still photographer living in Austin, Texas. I teach traditional photography and digital imaging at St. Edward's University, where I am a Professor of Photocommunications and Area Coordinator. I've taught workshops and made presentations for the Maine Photographic Workshops, the Santa Fe Workshops, the California Arts Institute, Anderson Ranch, the Royal Photographic Society of Scotland, the Society for Photographic Education, National Press Photographer's Association (NPPA), and the American Society for Media Photographers (ASMP), among others. I have written and lectured extensively on business practices for photographers and, in 2006, published "The Photographer's Guide to the Digital Darkroom" (Allworth Press), the first textbook to bridge traditional photographic practice with digital imaging. In 2009, I described the use of print on demand technology for developing digital imaging curriculum in the International Journal of the Book. With Scott King, I co-own K2 Press Inc., a digital imaging and fine art printing studio in Austin. We provide high resolution scanning, image file preparation, exhibition and portfolio printing for artists, photographers, and institutions. We also provide digital prepress services for print on demand and traditional offset publication.
