Arts Umbrella has been very fortunate to have the support of Ken Mayer in creating all of the materials we require for one of our major signature events – SPLASH – an art auction.

His enthusiasm and professionalism also brings a sense of fun to his work and I am always grateful for his strategic advice with it comes to completing our work. Given the fact that our timelines are so tight and deliveries from the artist are unpredictable, Ken always helps us meet or timelines and is gracious about working within very tight timelines.

In summary, it has been a pleasure working with Ken, he is very professional, his work meets a high standard of excellence and he is very engaged in his project.

If we are ever unsure of how a product should be shot Ken is able to offer his expertise and guide us in the right direction.

I’ve had terrific working experiences with Ken Mayer now for over a decade, a period that marked Ken’s seamless transition from traditional film into digital imaging. In both realms he’s a technical whiz, and unlike other photographers I’ve worked with, he’s really quick at “getting” the idea of a shoot and doesn’t waste time, which is something that drives me nuts.

I’d cheerfully recommend Ken for any sort of work. He’s good.
