Dr. Kim Kuhlman, M.Photog.Cr, CPP is a professional photographer and owner of Chile Dog Photography. She earned her PhD in Engineering Physics and has worked for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Planetary Science Institute. Imaging of one form or another, most recently at the nano-scale, has been involved in every job she has had. She brings a knowledge of physics to her photography that gives her a unique perspective on creating an award-winning image.
Kim enjoys creating lasting images of man’s best friend, whether in the studio or on location. She also donates time and images to local shelters that are always in need of photographers. Most recently, Kim has been volunteering with the City of Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department (AWD). Her favorite subjects there are the American Pit Bull Terriers. There are so many of them in the city shelter and they are some of the most loving dogs around. Kim has been shooting action shots of the dogs and using the images to construct short videos for use on PetHarbor.com. She also enjoys photographing any other species, given the opportunity.
Kim is also the owner of Blue Sky Digital Strategy, a small digital agency that helps small businesses with WordPress website design, search engine optimization (SEO), content and email marketing, and social media management. Blue Sky Digital Strategy provides WordPress coaching, security and website maintenance services.
