Noted for her eclectic mix of subject matter in her photography, Kim is widely recognized for her ability to create authentic visual identities reflecting rich traditions and unique cultures within the agriculture and ranching communities.
As one of the first photographers to document the emerging farm-to-cup craft coffee industry, Kim embarked on an adventurous journey, traveling to remote coffee farms and villages across the world. Despite language barriers, Kim relied on her natural social skills and ability to work under pressure quickly to build relationships with international coffee leaders, allowing her to reveal the beautiful stories between coffee growers and their new relationship with international trade. Her early work with brands like Allegro Coffee, Green Mountain Coffee, and Sustainable Harvest helped hone her storytelling skills, which she later applied to a variety of subjects across different industries. Today, Kim's unique approach to photography continues to be influenced by her early years of cultural immersion, resulting in authentic and captivating images.
On a personal note, Kim is based in Colorado. When she is not snowboarding, hiking, or playing agility with her two herding dogs, you can find Kim photographing beautiful native plants that thrive in the high desert.
