Boy Meets Girl
Amidst the rampant creativity, commercial artist James Schletty hired Glen Silker to photograph the Kayot Motor Home account and a lifelong friendship began.
Fast forward 20 years – James’ daughter Barbara needs a job and a poster (below) arrives for the annual GS Photo studio party (1500 people…live tigers…dancing girls…insanity). Barbara’s mother exclaims “You need to work at Silkers! They’re crazy just like you!
Greg Silker (son of Glen) “approves of” the new hire…makes newly employed Barbara his “go to” assistant and the rest is history (and herstory).
Creativity abounded, resulting in four new kids.
Greg left the family business to pursue ministry and various other artistic projects, but began photographing marine products “on the side” a few years later. That new marine photography business grew to serve the best clients in the outdoors industry.
The Legacy Continues
Now that the Silker “kids” have come of age, the Silker legacy continues, including, photography, filmmaking and strategic creative.
