The Ken Duncan Story

In a 2007 segment on Australia’s television program A Current Affair Ken Duncan was described as “definitely one of Australia’s most iconic image makers”. In a leading American gallery Ken was described as “the Ansel Adams of colour photography” – a high compliment indeed. Australian Professional Photography Magazine described him as “the photographer who is now undoubtedly Australia’s (and possibly the world’s) leading exponent of panoramic landscape photography”. Ken was the photographer chosen by Mel Gibson to shoot on the set of his epic movie The Passion of the Christ.

Well known as the pioneer of panoramic photography in Australia, Ken is an originator – not an imitator – which is why his work is so highly sought after by collectors. He was one of the first to promote photography as an art form in Australia and in 2006 was granted an Honorary Fellowship from the Australian Institute of Professional Photography in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the industry. In 2009, Ken was honoured to be awarded a Medal Of The Order Of Australia (OAM) by the Australian Government for his services to landscape photography, publishing and the arts. He was also awarded the photographic industry’s highest honours – the Photo Imaging Council of Australia’s Gold Tripod award.

Considered a master in his field of photography, Ken has won numerous awards both nationally and internationally for his images and publications. He has worked for many prestigious magazines such as National Geographic and Rolling Stone. He has worked with prominent advertising agencies on international accounts and directly with major corporations such as Bank of America, American Airlines, Qantas, Fujifilm and many more.

It’s this amazing diversity that has given Ken Duncan such great recognition. His works are owned by members of royalty and national rulers; by Sheiks, spiritual leaders, movie stars and music industry icons; by major business leaders, investors, collectors and private individuals all over the world. Over the past twenty years Ken has also published an extensive range of photographic books, posters, calendars and other premium quality products in wonderfully affordable formats.
