Belle & Company featuring Ken Pao Miami photography

Ken Pao's passion for photography began while growing up between Houston and Shanghai. From a young age, he was inspired to travel and explore. Using his camera to capture the visions around him, trips eventually transformed into assignments. In melding the beauty of people with the destinations themselves, fashion photography and portraiture were a natural progression.

Fittingly, Ken’s distinct photographic style incorporates aspects of both architecture and fashion. Keeping an eye on composition and detail, the resulting images embody a strong visual style and a clean, minimalist feel. Also setting Ken apart is a contagious passion and enthusiasm that reverberates through to the final images.
