Hello & Welcome!

My name is Jan Ketonen and I'm a professional photographer located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Of all the things I've ever photographed, I've discovered that I obtain the greatest fulfillment from photographing people... especially happy couples and celebrations. Therefore I'm most frequently found photographing engagements and weddings. It's a great job!

As to how I became a photographer in the first place, I was fortunate enough to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD). My art school studies focused on photography, painting and art history. Countless hours of studying, practice and critiques with my peers definitely shaped who I've become as an artist. I'm drawn to bright, vibrant colours and capturing the subtle, emotional moments found in everyday life. I love the immediacy that photography affords, which makes it a perfect fit for showing the world how I see things.

My aesthetic speaks for itself: the images that I capture will not be captured in the same way by someone else, and in turn when I pick up a camera I don’t spontaneously develop a whole new style that is different from what you see here! My style is well illustrated in my portfolio and while I know that I cannot be all things to all people, those of you who do love my work are the same people whom I wish to work for and to continually impress!

So far I have been extremely blessed to have photographed some amazing people and events. If what you see on these pages catches your eye, then perhaps I am the photographer for you!

I look forward to hearing from you!
