Biography of Kenneth Linge, M.Photog.,Cr.CPP,PFP,XXV
Kenneth’s loves are simple: watching the Utah Jazz with his boys, listening to music with his girls and either photographing people or teaching others to do the same. He enjoys Utah’s four seasons which, remind him of his native Norway. His corporate clients include Mitsubishi, Canon, Modbe Clothing and Bennett Communications. He also photographs a limited number of weddings and children.
Photographing professionally since age seventeen, Kenneth’s photographic awards include Norwegian Photographer of the Year, Kodak Gold Awards for the Nordic division, several Scandinavian Fame Portrait “Photographer of the Year” awards, Professional Photographers of America’s Masters and Craftsman Degrees as well as Loan Collections prints. Kenneth moved to the United States in 2000, leaving Norway as the 90’s most award-winning photographer in Scandinavia.
Kenneth has chaired European judging committees and is a member of the prestigious XXV group, a group of the world’s leading speakers and photographers. Kenneth is passionate about teaching and has lectured extensively during the past decade. “Mentoring other motivated photographers is very rewarding. I feel that the benefits from all my hard work are endlessly multiplied when I’m able to help another photographer. We all constantly learn from each other and teaching has taught me to analyze and improve my own work.” Last year alone, Kenneth completed five European teaching tours and in 2007 founded the International School of Photography. “My strength is making people look good,” explains Kenneth. And with assignments around the world, his clientele back his claim.
