Kimberly Dam's journey as a travel photographer and visual journalist began as an 8-year-old, in possession of a hot pink 35 mm Minolta. With an endlessly wandering heart and an artistic eye, it wasn't long before she realized what her camera would become; a powerful tool that would aid in the cultivation of her creative outlet as a witness, and ultimately, a sharer of stories. Since then, Kim has worked with countless individuals in some of the most remote regions of the world, documenting their life's stories as they unfurled along the way. In addition, her passion for eco-friendly and sustainable products has led to collaborations with several small businesses on branding projects. Currently based in Wilmington, N.C., Kim is one of the most sought after commercial, editorial and portrait photographers in the area.
