This was a gloriously fun time & I can’t wait for you to hear the podcast we did. @sonsofanillustriousfather a few days back in Brooklyn 😎

Took these photos a few months back when @johnnyswim played @brooklynsteel. This was one of those nights where the room was full of so much positivity. Would highly recommend seeing them live, truly incredible people & musicians.

Taken last summer with @maggierogers 💫 Can’t wait to catch her again this coming autumn

Somehow last night was the first time I shot @robynkonichiwa 🇸🇪 I’ve come across her at festivals but never one of her own shows. What I experienced last night was a beautiful safe space that was full of diversity, especially the LGBTQ community. So much dancing, so much colour, this was one hell of a night. If you’ve never seen Robyn before, be sure to change that ASAP

Always fun catching the world’s best festival band 🇦🇺 @tame__impala a few months back in Boston.

“People will pay attention to most things that evoke emotion.” Friday’s podcast is beautiful catch-up with my friend @joepbeving. We talked about how a career in music has changed his life & why he felt compelled to release a double album in 2019. If you’re unfamiliar with Joep, he’s a pianist from Holland who’s albums transport you to other worlds 🇳🇱 You can hear our chat now via @the405 (also on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, etc.)

“It makes me happy to know that I still have a lot to say.” Today’s podcast is with a musician who’s lived one hell of a life; say hello to @kellyleeowens. On this episode we talk about the impact her debut album has had on her life, how she got her start in music & how the current state of the world is inspiring her writing 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 You can hear the podcast now via @the405 (also on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, etc.)

“Getting to share these stories is a real privilege.” A few days ago I had an early morning chat with two guys I’ve been a fan of for years. @kevinpdevine & @okayfineandy of @manchesterorchestra join me on the podcast to talk about their new album as @badbooksmusic. It’s a contemplative album that explores emotions both inwardly & outwardly. The songs have a lot to say about the human condition & you can hear our chat now via my podcast. Episode is now live via @the405 (also on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, etc.) *This photo is from a Bad Books show I shot five years ago at Webster Hall 👌🏾

A few weeks back me & @holdingsarah spent (actual) days on the beaches in Bermuda. This is my favourite photo from the trip; the most beautiful human I’ve ever seen without a care in the world ❤️

“We were trying to figure out how we can translate our live show within the studio.” Say hello to your new favourite band, @ihatemissjune. Hailing from New Zealand, they’re a band that doesn’t give any fucks 🇳🇿 You can learn more about them on today’s podcast, which is up now via @the405 (also on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, etc.)

“As the album’s have gone on, my perspective has changed a lot.” One of my favourite albums of 2019 is When I Wake Up by @mavericksabre. It’s an album that’s both introspective & extroverted; where a love of hip-hop, r&b, & soul meld together. I got to chat with Maverick about how the album came to be while he was in Brooklyn, you can check it out on the podcast today. Podcast is up now via @the405 (also up on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, etc.)

New podcast up today & it’s one I’m massively proud of. @sah.key, @lorigutmanphotos & @sophiaragomo came together to talk about their love for photography, their experiences dealing with misogyny in media, working with artists & what sets their generation apart from the previous. Trust me when I say; you’re going to love this one 📸 Podcast is up now via @the405 (also up on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, etc.)

Was great reconnecting with @astridsofficial yesterday. Thanks for the fun time, and for bringing such great production to @roughtradenyc! 💙🇳🇴

kenamiphoto

Some of my favourite people are in town to play some shows, stoked to catch @theaces headline Bowery Ballroom tomorrow! These are some outtakes from one of their early photoshoots that I did with them, two years back during a cold af afternoon. On this day, they were actually finishing up my favourite song of theirs, Put It On The Line. Go give that tune a listen, it’s fucking fantastic ♠️

kenamiphoto

“We got gas in the tank to go all night” fucking incredible time with @arkellsmusic last night, always a fun time. More photos to come soon 👌🏾🇨🇦

kenamiphoto

Remembering this incredibly gig @editorsofficial played nearly a year ago. Can’t wait to be reunited with these beautiful humans again 🖤

kenamiphoto

If you’ve never seen @julytalk live, make a note to change that ASAP. One of the best fucking live bands out there (shots taken a few nights back with @metric)

kenamiphoto

“YES LAWD!” finally caught the great @anderson._paak live last night! 🚨

Last night with @vincestaples, fucking love this kid

Fun time with @thisissigrid last night at @brooklynsteel. Great to finally catch her live! 👌🏾🇳🇴

Been waiting years to see this dude live & he didn’t disappoint. Mega fun time with @mnek last night, first ever US show 👌🏾❤️ you fucking killed it!

kenamiphoto

I love this fucking band 🖤 @metric last night at @kingsbklyn

One of the best bands you can hope to see live in nyc, @teentheband, are back with a new album out on March 1st. The album is called Good Fruit and is all about growing up and going through changes in your life. On today’s podcast, I chat with sisters Lizzie & Teeny about how this album came together, & why life changes are necessary to make art. You can hear the episode now via @the405 (also via Spotify, iTunes, SoundCloud, etc.)

kenamiphoto

Randomly came across these old photos on a hard drive 😂 taken three years ago on our way to @bonnaroo 👌🏾

Met up with @juliajacklin a few weeks back, & we went into her upcoming album, Crushing. She shared why it was important to look more inward when it came to inspiration & the growth she’s experienced as an artist these last few years 🇦🇺 You can hear our talk now via @the405 (also on Spotify, iTunes, SoundCloud, etc.)

kenamiphoto

Yeah, truly an unforgettable time. Don’t be surprised if I spam you with more photos in the coming days 😂 Here are some of my favourite shots I took of @thebandher’s final show at the Zenith in Paris. Big ups to the team & @victor_solf for having me out, was a dream 🇫🇷❤️

kenamiphoto

Taken a few weeks back, @brendonurie of @panicatthedisco at the Barclays Center. Gotta say, this show left me quite fucking speechless. Incredible performance!

kenamiphoto

Today’s podcast is with the one & only @deshaunicus. A close friend of mine who always leaves me inspired with his photography. Been dying to make this talk happen for a while (even though we text all the time), especially because of DeShaun’s ideas of what personal success means to him. You can hear the talk now via @the405 (also on Spotify, iTunes, SoundCloud, etc.)

kenamiphoto

Here’s a photo that’s been in my photo roll for a long ass time (two years to be exact) 🍃

kenamiphoto

That’s my friend @brittanybrave, and she’s one of two guests I have on my podcast today. Brittany is comedian here in New York, and on this episode we go into why NYC comedians are such a specific breed, the non-stop work that goes into crafting a set, and yes...a lot of foul language. You can hear the episode now via @the405 (also on Spotify, iTunes, SoundCloud, etc.)

kenamiphoto

Had a lovely time catching up with my old friend, @monicamartin. She’s recently released music after a long while away from music, and we go into that within this talk. We also touch on the complex feelings of being a black person in predominantly white spaces (and even have a bit of a cry about it). You can hear this now on my podcast over at @the405 (also on Spotify, iTunes, SoundCloud, etc.)

kenamiphoto

One of the best things about Paris was getting to work alongside these two. Big ups to @007frings & @albertozioulstoulouse for being so welcoming & a true pleasure to work with. Check out they’re work, fucking brilliant stuff 👌🏾🇫🇷

kenamiphoto

My first time shooting at @brooklynsteel was to photograph one of my heroes, @pjharveyofficial. The show exceeded all my expectations and the energy in the room that night...fucking incredible. (taken April 2017)

kenamiphoto

Been a fan of @orlagartland’s music for years now, and recently got to chat with her for the podcast. Along with making vids for YouTube, she also runs a secret demo club on Patreon. There’s also the matter of her tune ‘I Go Crazy’ which is easily one of my favourite tunes to come out this year. We talk about all this and more on today’s podcast, up now via @the405 (also on iTunes, SoundCloud, Google Play, etc.)

Had a great time catching up with @avtate recently to talk about his upcoming second solo-record, In The Waves. It’s immensely different from what you’d expect, especially from the world of @sanferminband. Podcast is up now via @the405 (also on iTunes, SoundCloud, Google Play, etc.)

kenamiphoto

Today’s podcast is an episode I’m massively proud of. A few weeks back I got to sit with @themostmona to discuss her journey in rap, her life in academia, and how her single ‘hijabi’ spread like wildfire across the world. Talk is up now via @the405 (also on iTunes, SoundCloud, Google Play, etc.)

kenamiphoto

Say hello to your new favourite band. They’re @idlesband from Bristol, and they’re fucking incredible. Go check out their new album, Joy As An Act of Resistance, you’re going to love it.

kenamiphoto

Caught up with @bobmosesmusic recently, to discuss their latest album, Battle Lines. We go over how dance music can be personal and the imprint the last few years has left on them. Podcast is up now via @the405 (also up on iTunes, SoundCloud, Google Play, etc.)

Fuck, so I love this band 🔥@biffy_clyro taken April 2017

This one is back in nyc this week. Outtake shot from two years back at @babysallright 😏❤️ @annemarie

Alloysious Massaquoi of @young_fathers three years ago in Brooklyn. Truly an incomparable group of artists.

Been thinking about this day a bit. This were taken four years ago, when I linked up with @the1975 in Boston. I haven’t posted any of these onto here before, and some of my favourite photos are here. The third shot is of fans who nearly knocked down the fence that lead to the backstage area. I remember hopping on George’s back to take photos while he and Matty took selfies + signed autographs. The sixth photo is of a girl Matty brought on stage to sing Robbers. I took that photo of her at the end when she ran back and collapsed from joy. 🖤

kenamiphoto

Missed posting this yesterday, but super proud of the latest episode of my podcast which features a hilarious talk with @piercebrothersmusic. They’re two brothers from Australia that put on a live show unlike anything I’ve seen before. Along with their talent, they’re also two of the kindest souls you can ever hope to meet. You can find the talk up via @the405 (as well as iTunes, SoundCloud, Google Play, etc.)

kenamiphoto

I linked up with my friend @cortneyarmitage a few weeks back and asked her about her story. How she found a camera in her hands, how she found herself working at Pixar, how she aces both live photography & portraiture, and most of all; how she remains to be such a positive force. This was such a fun day, and you can hear that talk now via @the405 (also via iTunes, SoundCloud, Google Play, etc.)

Last year I started a podcast, and in typical Ken fashion I never gave it a proper introduction. Now (several 100+ episodes later) I’ve decided to give the podcast the proper intro that it deserves. Today’s episode is just that; me being interviewed by my friend @cortneyarmitage about how the podcast came to be and where I’d like it to go. Talk is up now via @the405 (also on iTunes, SoundCloud, Google Play, etc.)

Last night with @carolinerosemuzak 🎸 My flash mis-fired, but so glad I caught this moment 😊 Damn great show last night!

kenamiphoto

For years @fthatnoise has been telling me about how magical @newportfolkfest is. This year marked my first year at the festival and I can truly say it’s an experience like nothing else. No ads, no elaborate stage set-ups, no distractions. Just music and people who’re there to listen. It was especially beautiful to see the finale, #AChangeIsGonnaCome, hosted by @jonbatiste. A beautiful display of talent that also included @leonbridgesofficial, @maggierogers, @brandicarlile, @mavisstaples, @thevaleriejune, and so many more. Will soon be sharing a group of podcasts I recorded on the grounds (along with more photos) 👌🏾
