Photographer of the Week – Kimber Kiefer
By Joseph Tepper, November 1, 2018 @ 04:00 AM (EST)

There are those who like to be behind the camera. There are those who like to be in front of it. And then there’s Kimber Kiefer—who is as comfortable in either situation.

Kimber—a native Texan as she’d proudly point out—loves the adventure of traveling, exploring the ocean, and underwater modeling in all settings. But she’s much more than a model: Kimber fell in love with the ocean after becoming a certified diver at age 16, and is now a PADI Divemaster. She shares her passion for diving and creating underwater art with her husband Ken.

Kimber usually finds herself in front of the camera or shooting behind the scenes. Lately, she has picked up a penchant for creating her own special images—from crocs to hammerhead sharks. “The sky is the limit and don’t let anyone or anything stop you from achieving your goals,” says Kimber. “It all begins with believing in yourself—never give up and always be YOU!”
