Michael is a passionate Vermont photographer, a detail oriented website designer, a dad, husband, snowboarder, mountain biker, hiker, and a full time product manager. Michael McKennedy - Nov 2012
My passion for photography began in Lowell, Massachusettes in 1985 when my highschool photography teacher let me borrow her personal Pentax K-1000 for a few days (thanks Ms. O'hare!) and fell in love with the concept of the frame being a canvas on which I could paint with light. Evenutually I saved up enough money and bought my own.
Years later, while living in Hyannis, Ma. the camera was stolen, along with ten rolls of undeveloped film and I took and extended break from photography (read: couldn't afford a new camera).
Later my passion resurfaced and I bought another K-1000. Shortly after that I moved to Vermont where my love for photography blossomed into a full blown addiction. Since then I have put down the K-1000 and made the transformation to digital.
My work has been published in Elle Magazine, tourist brochures, and in the first edition of the Capture My Vermont hard cover book, as well as in the 2013 University of Vermont publication. It has also been used as CD cover art, on many websites, as the basis for artist's paintings (see 'Sunning'), and has been purchased for special wedding, holiday, and birthday gifts.
