A little while ago I got to watch Ken Penn do his thing live and in person. If you are not familiar with the mans work I highly recommend you check it out here . I have reached out to Ken a couple times and each time he is as helpful as he can be. He is the type of photographer you want to model yourself after because he is seemingly always working and has a real passion for it that only comes from a love of taking pictures. He is not flashy with tons of gear etc. like you see some photographers, but only uses what he needs to get the job done and get a product that both he and the people involved are happy with. This is from when he was shooting some of the guys from Jack Brown's Tattoo Revival's favorite pieces to use on their website etc.
