Icon Photographer Ken Settle

Ken Settle

Ken Settle is a Detroit-area photographer who has specialized in music photography for over four decades. He began his career while barely in his teens, photographing future rock legend Bob Seger’s early performances in the clubs and roller rinks around the Motor City.

Since then, Ken’s photos have been published worldwide in a wide range of publications, album, and book projects. His work has also been displayed on multiple TV programs, including VH1’s documentary series Behind the Music and Driven, and even as set decoration for ABC’s classic ’90s sitcom Roseanne. To this day, Ken still maintains a packed schedule shooting performance photos and portraits of today’s top artists.

Twenty of Ken’s photos were included in the Kodak Rock Photography Collection and “Rock-X-Posed” exhibit, a collection of “500 of the greatest rock photos of the past 50 years.” Fender Guitars distributed a limited-edition print from Ken with each of their 100 Stevie Ray Vaughan Tribute Series Stratocasters, and they also feature several large reproductions of Ken’s work in their newly opened Visitor Center/Museum in Corona, CA.
