Ken Pagliaro is an artist, photographer, waterman, adventure seeker and all around lover of nature. He has surfed around the world, explored glaciers and climbed mountains all with his camera in hand.
Originally from New Jersey Ken moved to California in 2002 to pursue a career in photography. He studied at Art Center School of Design in Pasadena, and assisted multiple Los Angeles photographers before developing his own adventurous style. Since then he’s been hired to document a summit to the highest mountain peak in the lower 48 states, swim out in a relentless angry ocean to film beautiful hollow waves and to ice berg hop near Alaska’s Columbia Glacier for a commercial ad campaign, and much more. Most recently Ken was hired to document the Olamau race in Hawaii.
Ken’s work has been internationally featured in commercial, television, and magazine ads.
