About the Photographer

Kenneth Gregg was born in Los Angeles, California. At ten years old, his parents gave him a box Brownie camera. Within a year, he had built a darkroom in the home basement and was developing and printing his own black and white images. He pursued his passion for photography through high school and college. After graduating from UC Berkeley in 1969, he traveled extensively as the catalogue photographer for the first ten years of The North Face outdoor equipment company.
After leaving The North Face, he turned his artistic endeavors toward pictorial photography of old California, self-publishing books on Santa Barbara and on the Santa Ynez Valley. Numerous corporations have purchased Gregg’s artwork for their collections. His work has also been used extensively for promotional brochures, calendars, greeting cards, book covers, and award-winning wine labels.
In 1991, he began selling his artwork for permanent decor to luxury hotels, such as the Four Seasons, Hyatt Regency and Wynn Resort Hotels, throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and Russia, . He has continued to expand his sales in this area for the last 25 years. Now semi-retired, he has been focusing his attention on photographing what life looks like in the small historic town of Jacksonville.
