ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Kimberly J. Smith began her professional photography career in 2001 in Muskogee, Oklahoma. With no formal training, she stepped out on faith, purchased her professional equipment, and began taking classes. Photography soon became a passion and she quickly learned that creating beautiful portraits and art was what she was meant to do.
As a member of her local, state, regional and national Professional Photographer associations, she soon earned her Master of Photography, Photographic Craftsman and Master Artist Degree and became a PPA Affiliated Juror and Certified Professional Photographer. Kimberly has earned 147 exhibition merits, 55 of those being published Loan/Imaging Excellence images and earned her Fellowship Degree through the American Society of Photographers. She truly believes in lifelong learning and that every competition and every journey has pushed her to become a better, more creative photographer.
Creating art has become her passion, and her family is her love. With seven super loud but loving teenagers/ young adults, life can be a bit chaotic, but she wouldn't have it any other way. She is blessed to have a job she truly loves.
