Thoughts on Life, Art, Photography, Technology, Teaching and Travel…..

KeO Photo Gallery

I’ll be adding my favorite photographs to this gallery on an ongoing basis. Comments and criticism are always appreciated. My roots are in photography. I started taking photographs in college back in 1972 and have been making photographs ever since. It is one of my personal passions. I have been teaching photography for almost 30 years and am just as enthusiastic about making photographs as I was then. Check out my web slide shows linked below.

    Mr. Keough,
    What a great blog. I wish I had known about it sooner. Your photography is excellent. “Rust and Net” has so much texture. Your photogs of the beaches are just amazing. I am sure photography like that takes a keen understanding of light and shadows. Your children are so lucky! I wish I had the opportunity to travel when I was that young. What an education. Thank you for sharing your blog! ~~Samantha Shepherd

    Mr. K,
    I truely enjoy all forms of art, photograghy is an easy one for me because it’s quick and lasts forever as a back-up memory. Your photo talents are strong and it’s easy to see your views and reason for each. I want you to know that I have really enjoyed your class and wish it had not ended so quickly. I have always considered myself an artist but not enough to live off of the proffesion. I hope to meet you some day, thanks for the new views on art.

    Hey Patrick love love the pic of the sunset with the pier. Isn’t that the one you did a painting of?… Love it to by the way..
    Have a good weekend..

    I will always value the photograph of the sunset at Sportsman’s Pier. It is truly symbolic of the spirituality of our relationship and our relationship with God. Your painting of the pier is a special gift that I will always treasure. Thank you. It truly speaks volumes.

    The photo depicting the sunset with the kayak on Bogue Sound is by far in my opinion, the best. You captured the essence of light, nature and kinetic energy. The rules of design are incorporated into a creative image of realism vs. surrealism. Thank you for sharing this special moment with me.

    Wow, I am so glad you sharred this with us. Its a great site. As you know I am a photographer as well and love to see other works. I loved the chickens behind the beer kegs. What a perfect composition.

    What a great opportunity to see Ireland. And the photos…outstanding.

    Your race was quite impressive as well, Congradulations.

    I will definitely visit again.

    I love you work. You have done well. I am proud to know you. Talked just recently to George and Betty McKim unexpectedly just last weekend – betty was in the Art in the Park in Blowing Rock, NC – and we had a nice long talk catching up on our lives (like with you and your brother, haven’t seen nor talked to you/them since we left Greenville in 1986). We had the chance to recall what we knew about everyone, and with you we just knew that you were doing quite well. That was a good thought. Hope to see you sometime. Gary, Ann and Hannah

    It is great to hear from you Gary! Joe and I looked for you 2 years ago at the ECU School of Art reunion. They had us come back to the photography program as honored educators. What an honor that was. Where are you living and working now? I have your e-mail address and will send you some photos I took from those crazy Greenville days. Man we had some fun times. Remember those Wiley cook outs? I’ll be in touch! Patrick

    I really like the pic with the view of the full moon how did you get such a clear pic. I have tried to take a pic about three weeks again but not sure what set my camera on. I have rebel cannon digtal camera. Help if you can?

    I used a 250mm Canon Lens shot at 400 ISO and it helped that the Moon was the brightest and closest to earth than it had been for many years. I also bracketed my exposures and shot about 20 frames to get a really good one.

    It occurred to me after I spoke with Pam around noon today that the potential risk could probably be avoided with a disclaimer–something like a box containing language like, “This is not a Carteret County Arts Council function.” In fact, I’ve suggested to Pam that such a disclaimer be used whenever the ACCC website is used by another outfit or person.

    That is a good point Buddy. I already pulled the auction information from the ACCC web site and will promote only through my web site. I appreciate you bringing this to my attention.

    So good to hear from you Russell after all these (30) years. The last time we were together I believe we were in Sanford, NC. You had come down to visit me when I got out of the Army. I’ll shoot you an e-mail and we can catch up.

    Mr. K, your pictures are amazing! You captured a true essence of beauty. You took pictures of objects that normally I may have walked right past by, but you captured an emotion. I am planning on changing my major to photography, that is what I wanted to do from the beginning, and transfer to University of North Carolina Charlotte. I absolutely loved the pictures in black and white along with the sunset pictures and waterfront. Keep taking pictures as long as you can! You capture some of the best memories that are meaningless then, but mean so much later in life.
