Kim has had a full and eventful life in pursuit of both adventure and photography. His cameras accompanied him wherever he went – often to their detriment – he has frozen, damaged, flooded and lost many cameras. He says “My cameras are there to do a job, not to look pretty”. Kim’s presentations are a mix of adventure, world-class photography and – for camera clubs – technical insights into his photographic processes.
Illustrated presentations given include public lectures in London [as part of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition], New York [where he was “Lawrence Distinguished Visiting Scholar” at the State University of New York], and the keynote address at the New Zealand Geographic Photo Competition Awards in October 2013. A copy of the Introduction to that speech can be read on his blog, A Photographic Journey.
Another lecture, entitled Making the Cut, given at the Auckland Museum in 2012, can be viewed below.
