About Me

<h2><b>Kathleen Keck Photography</b>   
<i>Let my photography tell your story…</i></h2>
Kathleen Keck has been crafting her photography skills since she was twelve years old when she purchased her first instamatic camera.  After several years of 35mm cameras, slides and print film, Kathleen began using a digital camera and continues to use Nikon equipment today.

Kathleen began photographing weddings, special events and portraits in the late 1970s and continues to offer these services today along with additional services for specialty, private and public schools (yearbooks, senior portraits, school portraits, proms, graduations) throughout New York State and New England.  Her work has been used by several departments at Paul Smith’s College for print materials for students, parents and guests.  Ruthie’s Run, an upscale clothing shop in Lake Placid has some of her photographs on their website.  She has donated her work to charitable causes in the Adirondacks over the past eight years.  She is a member of the Women's College Scholarship Club and is a volunteer with the Pendragon Theatre - both in Saranac Lake, New York.

Kathleen’s overall passion is her family followed by higher education and photography.  For the past twenty years she has worked at two universities and one college (Brandeis University, University of Miami, and Paul Smith’s College) as a researcher and a senior administrator.  When she’s not photographing a special event or person, she is the senior administrator in the president’s office at Paul Smith’s College, a four-year private college in the Adirondack Park of New York State.

She was born and raised in Croghan, New York and then moved to Woodville, New York in 1963 with her family.  After graduating from Belleville Central School in 1973 she lived in Newton, Massachusetts for two years with the Saundra and Alan Michelson family and attended college.  Upon graduation from Mount Ida College in 1975, Kathleen returned to Northern New York State where she worked until 1984.  She then returned to Boston for the next eighteen years to work and photograph.  She completed three additional degrees during this time period: a Bachelor Science in Business (SUNY non-traditional program), Master in Management of Human Services and a Master in Business Administration (both from the Heller School at Brandeis University).  Kathleen is a breast cancer survivor and currently resides in Saranac Lake, New York. 

Thank you.

Let my photography tell your story…


Hello!

I have been crafting my photography skills since I was twelve years old when I purchased my first instamatic camera. I was fairly certain this is what I wanted to invest in because I used my Mom's box cameras for a couple of years before I saved enough cash for the first camera!  After that I began using 35mm cameras for several years and switched to digital cameras and now I use Nikon equipment today. I began photographing weddings, special events and portraits in the late 1970s and continue to offer these services today along with additional services for corporate and non-wedding events, private and public events throughout New York State and New England.  My work has been used by Trudeau Institute, Paul Smith’s College and other mission driven organizations.  I have donated printed work to charitable causes in the Adirondacks over the past fourteen years (wow, seems like I just moved here yesterday). My passions are photography and mission-driven organizations. For the past twenty-six years I have worked at private universities and colleges (Brandeis University, University of Miami, and Paul Smith’s College) as a health services researcher and as a senior administrator. Currently, when I'm not photographing an event, I am the senior administrator in the president's office at Trudeau Institute, a biomedical research center in the Adirondack Park of New York State. I was born (yup) and raised in Croghan, New York and then Mom moved us to Woodville, New York. After graduating from Belleville Central School in 1973, I lived in Newton, Massachusetts where I graduated from Mount Ida College in 1975.  I returned to Northern New York State until 1984, then I packed up my Toyota and returned to Boston for the next eighteen years to work and photograph. I completed three additional degrees during this time period:  A Bachelor Science in Business (SUNY non-traditional program), Master in Management of Human Services and a Master in Business Administration (both from the Heller School at Brandeis University).  I am a breast cancer survivor and currently reside in Saranac Lake, New York.
