Episode 011: Interview With Kim Robbins – Part 1

Today’s show begins a two-part interview with Kim Robbins. Kim is a digital photographer. Her subjects vary from people to scenes in nature to abstract art. She translates her work from the camera to a digital environment where she uses image editing to perform darkroom type manipulations. She prints her own work using high-quality pigment ink printers to create fine art prints. Equally important to her process is the vision of line, form, color, composition, and rhythm that creates her style.

In addition to her work as an artist, Kim offers a unique portrait experience to clients. Her background as a fashion model shines through as she directs her subjects behind the camera with ease. She creates a comfortable, relaxed environment that affects the end result – stunning portraits. In today’s episode, we talk to Kim about how she got into the art industry, her journey leading up to where she is now, and how she’s living out her purpose. She also discusses the balancing act of being a mom while having a career and moving toward your vision and coming from a place of intentionality.
