1. Tom Kenfield Photography, Kenosha
“I’m humbled,” Tom Kenfield said after learning he had been chosen as Best Photographer in this year’s Best of Kenosha competition. “There are so many good photographers out there.”
Kenfield isn’t a full-time photographer; his full-time job is being a production manager at EMCO. He does not have a storefront studio.
Plus, he focuses mostly on shooting student portraits and high school sports.
“I try to do a lot of work with schools,” he said. “Working with a couple of high schools and sports teams helps with name recognition.
I try to keep photo shoots fun and low-key and keep focuses on the customers. The key is maintaining visibility, and I try to be as charitable as I can.”
A Kenosha resident for the past 15 years, Kenfield’s photography started as a hobby but grew into something more as his daughter got older.

And even in an era when everybody has a camera as part of their phones, Kenfield said there’s a desire for high-quality photography.
“Even though people have their phones, they recognize the ability of someone to get a closer and better shot,” he said, noting that the biggest boost in his business recently has been sports photos.
