Seller Spotlight: KenKPhoto

November 29, 2012

Hurricane Sandy is no longer the center of national news, but many on the East Coast are still displaced and recovering from Sandy’s devastating destruction. This holiday season, we’re thankful for Zazzle sellers and designers, like KenKPhoto, who have created and tagged (“hurricanesupport”) products to show their support for relief efforts. Zazzle will be donating all of the gross profits from tagged products to nonprofit organizations funding relief and recovery efforts.

I’m an amateur photographer from New Jersey, and I’ve been taking photos now for over ten years. I love night skylines, coasts and landscapes and you can often find me snapping pictures when I’m on vacation in the Grand Canyon or on a cruise.

I also like to photograph lighthouses and NJ’s Barnegat Lighthouse is one of my favorites. My Buildings and Architecture category has products based on photos taken a few years ago. When I found out that Zazzle would be donating profits to help the hurricane victims, I generated products from these photos to help in the relief effort.  Buyers can find them in my new Hurricane Support category:

Also known as “Old Barney” to New Jersey residents, the lighthouse is located on the northern end of Long Beach island. It was a simple picture, and I had no idea that it would become a symbol of strength and recovery for me after Hurricane Sandy. Designed by a famous Civil War general, the lighthouse was built to withstand everything. Despite the damage caused by the superstorm, it’s still standing!

People are still suffering from the after effects of Sandy, but I’m so moved to see so many people donating, pitching in and coming to the aid of total strangers. If there’s anything I can do to help — even the smallest earnings and proceeds from my products — I’m happy to do it.
