KEN MURRAY, a photographer with more than 40 years experience, joined the United States Air Force and coupled his love of photography with aviation to produce outstanding military images published worldwide. With a publishing and photography background, Murray was picked by the Air Force in the mid 1990’s to be editor of Torch Magazine, the Air Education and Training Command safety magazine. Murray and his staff won the International Blue Pencil Award for government communicators in 1995.

He continues to obtain his aviation fix via annual trips to the EAA's Airventure in Oshkosh, WI while now focusing on current events, sports, and drone photography.
He was just a kid when he first broke the surly bonds of earth. Bitten by the freedom of flight bug on his fifth birthday, Ralph Parr had what seemed like a never-ending horizon in front of him. Thankfully, his parents instilled in him a strong moral compass and the willingness to work, thus framing a young man with an extraordinary goal-oriented personality, traits that would pay off like the lottery years later. Even save his life! Feeling intrigued? Simply order your copy of "On Parr" today everywhere books are sold and get started today.
