Specializing in agricultural photography, farmer portraits, photo essays,
and stock photography. Through my Etsy Shop, I offer my newly published Farm book,
agricultural-focused Notecard Sets, Fine Art Prints, and Mounted 5x5 Fine Art Prints.
Today's giveaway is brought to you by Wooly Moss Roots Sponsor: Kimberly Peck, photographer.
I've really enjoyed getting to know Kim through e-mail (wish we lived closer!) and knew right away that we were kindred spirits. For starters, we share a love of local farms and real food. Her photography speaks straight to my soul. I love love Kim's book: Farm. Food. Life. (I've written about my adoration for it before: here.) We have a cherished copy on our bookshelf. It's truly a favorite. I've often thought her book would make wonderful gifts as well! I also use Kim's notecards regularly, I love them all. Kim has a deep appreciation for hardworking farmers and a passion to share what they do. Her pictures tell a story and her voice comes through in them. I believe the beauty she captures through her lens, blesses everyone who sees it.
I'll let Kim tell you more:
I currently live in southern New Hampshire with my husband and three children. We live in an art-filled home
with many pets and a flock of chickens. I try to bring my children to as many of my farm photo shoots as possible, in the hopes of teaching them about real food and where their food comes from. And, of course, I hope that at least one of them will be a farmer when they grow up :)
What items or services does your business offer?
Kim: While I think of myself as an artist first, and I do much of my farm photography unpaid and on my own time, I realized that there was a demand to offer my products for purchase. I started my Etsy shop as a way to have an online presence to showcase and sell my book, Notecards, Fine Art Prints & Mounted Prints. I also attend many craft fairs in the New England area throughout the year, which is a great way to connect with customers in person. My main business comes from assignments from magazines, businesses and non-profit foundations to shoot for their pages, websites and marketing materials. I would love to take on more editorial work this year, with a focus on agricultural photography, of course.
What do you love about what you do?
Kim: I always wanted to be an artist when I grew up, and I feel very blessed that I am able to be creative every day and that I can make a living from my art.
Kim: In 2013, I published my first book, Farm. Food. Life: Photographs+ Recipes Inspired by Local Farms. The 86-page book is a visual narrative of 12 New England farms, focusing on the hard work that farmers undertake to produce the vegetables, dairy products, eggs and meat that people eat every day. I also included 12 recipes – one for each farm – that showcase a featured ingredient produced by each farmer, as well as 12 farmer profiles written by the farmers themselves; I love that every farm is different - what they do and how they do it. I am deeply in awe of farm life, the ever-evolving, deeply-rooted connection between human, animal and plant. I hope that my book will further connect viewers to this chosen way of earning a living and encourage them think about the food on their plates.
A big thank you to Taryn & Wooly Moss Roots for the opportunity to share my work with this wonderful community!
