And he probably knows when to use an apostrophe.

I really think he's done a great job of self-promotion.

I know people do not think he's on the ball sometimes, but, you must admit, people talk about him a lot.

People talk about him alot because he's not on the ball.

People only talk about the bad, the evil, the drama.

Ken is so fantastic, he can control what kind of camera Nikon puts out.

He earns his money by being an internet icon for photo newbs... He isn't making money on his images. But damn, he did a smart thing.

It occurs to me that natural selection may come into the fore. He goes, he might come back. Might use a normal zoom as an example for the attendees in a live demo of framing and foot zooming with a lion as the subject.

Is it possible? Could we have found a photographer on the Internet who is not familiar with the genius that is Ken Rockwell?

Of course.

Ken is no different from any other media personality -- nobody ever said you have to be competent to be popular. I think that's a change over the last 20 or so years, actually; better to be well-perceived than actually competent -- I mean, like, totally, it is hard work to, like, know what's going on, ya know.

Is the safari to the Sand Diego Zoo?


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Guess you'll have to scroll to the page top there and call his number directly. ;)
