Kimberly Schneider was born in Chicago in 1977. As a teen, she was always taking photos, but it wasn't until she started working for a photographer in 1999, that she decided to make photography a career choice. She graduated from Colorado State University in 2002, with a BFA in Photography and Minor in Philosophy.
Kimberly lives and breathes photography. All of her personal work is made by her hand and always will be. Kimberly has exhibited at The Camera Obscura Gallery, Viewpoint Gallery, San Diego Art Institute, "Museum of the Living Artist," Scott Nichols Gallery, Art Intersection, and Gallery Revival, among other places.
Kimberly received an Award of Merit from the International Fine Art Photography Competition in 2012; her current/ongoing body of work, "Point Lobos & Beyond" was awarded Honorable Mention via The Moscow International Foto Awards in 2014. Please, see her 2014 interview in On Landscape (Magazine) for more information.
