"To work with Ken Paul Rosenthal is to work with an extraordinary talent. I hired him to take photographs of three different individuals for a book my organization is producing. First he gets to know the subject he photographs on many levels and his images capture this depth. It is as if he is peering into the essence of the subject. Second, he was always professional and his follow-through is impeccable. Third, the quality is exceptional. I would work with him again in a heartbeat."

- Lara Galinsky, Vice President, Echoing Green

"After a lifetime of awful photos, I was doubtful about getting decent headshots. Working with Ken Paul Rosenthal completely changed that. He was meticulous about position, lighting, artistic quality, and expression. He put me at ease and brought out my essence in the best photos of myself that I have ever seen."

- Dr. Kyra Bobinet, CEO, engagedIN

"What I liked about my photo session was that Ken had some very clear ideas of what he wanted while being open to what I wanted in regards to location or a certain angle. But what he does best is engage you as he takes the pictures and that makes all the difference because the smile comes not only from the mouth but also from the eyes."

- Al Hernandez, Independent Filmmaker

"My experience with Ken and his photography was very exciting. His patience and consideration exuded during our shoot was with the upmost professionalism."

- David Lewis, Founder, President, Free At Last

"My outdoor photo shoot with Ken was a very pleasant experience. Ken had very clear ideas about how he wanted to set up the photos with regard to location, light, posture etc., yet he also remained attentive and responsive to my wishes. He meticulously arranged each shot, all the while using his humor to put me at ease. As a result, the portraits look professional and reflect my personality. I wholeheartedly recommend Ken to anyone looking for professional yet original portrait shots."

- Heike Schaefer, Professor, University of Mannheim

"I worked with Ken on a photo shoot with my young daughter and husband and appreciated his creativity and enthusiastic spirit so much, we hired him to do multi-generational family portraits with my parents, cousins, siblings, and their children. Ken patiently listened to our ideas then used his artistic eye to produce some really fantastic photos. He was especially good at positioning us in a way that made the photos look very natural. Ken is extremely easy to talk to and has a pleasant sense of humor. I give him two thumbs up!"
