Kim’s roots in photography go back to 1978 when she received her first camera as a college graduation gift. Since then, the camera models have changed, as has the technology, but her passion for capturing images has continued to grow.
She currently makes her home near Annapolis, Maryland, with the Chesapeake Bay and its extensive shorelines her “playground”. Alarms going off at O’dark thirty are commonplace for Kim, as one of her favorite times to be capturing images is on dawn patrol. Her journeys and travels are the paths to her imagery.
Kim’s photography focuses on finding beauty in unusual places and subject matter; whether it is a pristine flower captured using a macro lens or an old dilapidated workboat scuttled in a marsh. Storytelling through her images is paramount. She hopes to evoke questions about her subjects and stir people to get out and explore the roads less traveled.
Her works have been juried by Robert Madden, a National Geographic photographer, as well as locally renown photographer, Jay Fleming. Her images adorned the walls of a local Annapolis restaurant, have been selected by Coldwell Banker Realty for their Severna Park Office and are displayed on Kent Island at a new residential development. Her images have been selected and featured in the Chesapeake Bay Magazine, the 2019 Maryland Dept. of Natural Resources Calendar and MarinaLife Magazine.
Kim is an active member of the Digital Photography Club of Annapolis; having served as Field Trip Director and Program Director. She serves as the liaison to the Maryland Photography Alliance for her club. Whether traveling near or far, Kim never leaves home without her camera. For her, there’s nothing like capturing special images, whether from a planned shoot or in a serendipitous moment. In sharing her photography she hopes to take the viewer along on her journey.
