Imaging USA Speaker Spotlight On... Kim Hartz! - PPA Today

Imaging USA Speaker Spotlight On... Kim Hartz!

By Bethany Clark

Imaging USA 2018 will be here before you know it...three-to-six days of the best in photography learning, networking and partying! It's all going down in the Music City, Nashville, TN, January 14-16, 2018 (Pre-Con classes January 11-13). 

Imaging USA is known far-and-wide as THE place to see some of the best speakers in the photography industry, as they take you on deep-dives into every topic you could want to learn more about. In order to get you even more excited (if that's possible!), PPA is going to spend the next several months highlighting our 2018 Imaging USA speakers.

Kim Hartz is a photographer, entrepreneur, consultant, mentor, speaker, and loving mother to two humans and two fur babies. She is an intimate photographer of babies, both with and without fur, and she works diligently to capture her clients' little ones as seen through their eyes. 

Having successfully been in business since 2010, Kim spends her time behind the camera as well as in front of other photographers, helping them find their niche. She is a sought-after speaker and offers one-on-one business coaching, photography mentoring, workshops and online programs. She was a Speaker at Imaging USA in 2016, a multiple-time Super 1 Day instructor, and a speaker at Texas PPA's Photogenesis that same year!

What is your life motto? Definitely this: "If failure is not an option, then neither is success" - Seth Godin. I'm a risk taker. I can't hope and dream; I have to do it. If it doesn't work out, it doesn't work out, but I at least have to try. That's exactly what I did when I opened my studio in 2010. I took a risk and worked my tail off to make it work, and I now have a very successful business.
What do you most value in your friends? Honesty, sense of humor, and loyalty.
What is your most treasured possession? That's tough... Obviously my family first (including my fur babies). But I would say it's a photo that my Aunt Kathy took of me and my mom when I was about 2 years old.
Coke or Pepsi? Neither for me either. I gave up all soft drinks a long time ago!

Kim Hartz is just one of the many amazing speakers you'll get to meet and learn from at Imaging USA 2018! Registration is open now so take advantage of the Early Bird rates for passes and your hotel!
