Today for the first time I met Kimberly, of Kimberly Fine Art Portraits in Baltimore/Owings Mills, MD and got a nice little tour of her newly remodeled (and massive) studio. I actually stopped by to look at an older camera she had for sale on craigslist, and after a little Canon-photographer bonding – we ended up talking photography for about an hour! She’s very socialable, experienced and was generous in giving me ideas and advice on how to improve my digital workflow, manage my memory cards, and keep organized once photography becomes a profession!
All the while, I was admiring her photographic work (ok – it’s “fine art” – truly) and working environment. With 30 years of photography experience, working with such icons as Monte Zucker and other notable photographers – her talent shows as she’s won numerous accolades and awards over the years. Do you remember those paintings of royalty that would hang in castles? That’s what Kimberly’s portraits look like – fine art! It was great to meet with her, and actually a few other photographers lately (Jenni – portrait/wedding photographer, Sean – “Alpine” wedding photography) all thanks to craigslist shopping encounters!
