About Kenneth

“A photograph is not an objective interpretation, but rather a subjective interpretation of what we feel.”

Somewhere between Cub Scouts and ET, Kenneth discovered a lifelong fascination with imagery, light, and Pixelvision.  Inspired by Kodachrome and an industrial wasteland, Kenneth grew up to secure a degree in cinematography from the North Carolina School of the Arts, where he starved himself long enough to jump aboard David Gordon Green’s breakout film, GEORGE WASHINGTON and contribute second unit photography, later nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for cinematography. 

"I approach every project with a few key broadstrokes, but really try to uncover the thousands of 'telling details' that organically construct an image, a scene—like an architect might develop a dream.  For me, filmmaking is a perfect, harmonious blend between science and art...the technical and aesthetic.”

But the creative landscape and fast pace of commercial production was what really caught his eye. Two adventures to MT. EVEREST branding for HANES/CHAMPION is a perfect example of the limitless possibilities offered by the industry.

“In the commercial world, you can really spend the time to craft every frame, every cut, and compose each moment with such precision that it becomes an intense and collaborative expression. There’s a vision and energy which can be focused and fused into branding. Everyone wants to try something new, and the creative latitude affords that. ”

And that’s what is poured into spots and campaigns for IBM, HOME DEPOT, LG, JOHN DEERE, WELLS FARGO, WACHOVIA, CISCO, LOWES, and more.

Wilson's television credits include the reality series ROUSCH RACING: DRIVER X for DISCOVERY, THE DRIVE for CMT, MADHOUSE for THE HISTORY CHANNEL, the PBS documentary BATTLE OF SAILOR’S CREEK, and a really great chance to meet Tammy Faye Baker on her last series, DEATH DEFYING (WE network).  Oh yes, and lots of NASCAR, MTV and BET.
