Wayne D. King is an accomplished photographer. His work can be found in the collections of a broad range of people including Livingston Taylor, (the late) Peter Max, Koko Taylor, Richard Merit, Bill Bradley, Bruce Babbitt, Bill Clinton, Adhiambo Odaga, Bill Russell and others.  His images are a celebration of life, blending the real and the surreal to achieve a sense of place or time that reaches beyond the moment into a dreamlike quintessentialism designed to spark an emotional response. Using digital enhancement, handcrafting, painting, and sometimes even straight photography, King takes the viewer to a place that is beyond simple truth to where truth meets passion, hope and dreams.

King studied photography under Richard Merritt at the University of New Hampshire. UNH had only a few photography classes but in those heady days Richard Merritt worked with a small and dedicated group of photographers who would become some of today's finest photographers: Edward Acker, Steve Bliss, Christopher Polydoroff, Casey MacNamara, Hannah Stutz and others.

As a freshman at UNH, King borrowed a camera from his roommate in order to have a camera when he applied for a job as a photographer at the New Hampshire, the UNH student newspaper. He had never used a camera but he needed the money so he talked a good game and was hired, prompting him to quickly learn how to develop film and print images. Within a few days he was hooked and he went on to work for "The New Hampshire" - UNH's student newspaper -  for the next four years competing fiercely for front page images with his roommate and good friend Edward G. Acker  III.

King holds a BS Degree in Environmental Conservation and a Masters Degree in Earth and Space Science Education from the University of New Hampshire, Durham.

A three term former State Senator from New Hampshire, Wayne King was the 1994 Democratic nominee for Governor. King is also the founder of The Electronic Community, a group of social entrepreneurs working on social and development issues in Africa.

King recently concluded work as the CEO of MOP Environmental Solutions, Inc with a merger that will make the company a force in the industry. MOP is a small public company in the business of manufacturing Oil Spill cleanup products. He is currently planning his next great life adventure.
