Hot off the wire… Kim Weston will also be joining us as a guest instructor for The Dynamic Nude workshop at Lake Powell! An excellent teacher, talented photographer and meticulous printer, who specializes in photographing the nude.
Kim has been a fine art nude photographer for over 30 years. He is a third-generation member of one of the most important and creative families in photography. He learned his craft assisting his father Cole in the darkroom making gallery prints from his grandfather Edward’s original negatives. Kim also worked for many years as an assistant to his uncle Brett, whose bold, abstract photographs rank as some of the finest examples.
Kim uses an 8×10 Arca Swiss, and also uses a Mamiya 67 that he inherited from his father. His main body of work consists of silver gelatin contact prints made from 6×7, 4×5 and 8×10 negatives. In addition to the 8×10 format he prints in 11×14 and 16×20 sizes. He also prints in Platinum and lately he has added paint to his photographs.
Kim and his wife, Gina, live at Wildcat Hill, the former home of Edward Weston where they specialize in teaching several unique photography workshops throughout the year.
We’ve known Kim and Gina for several years, and are really excited to have them on the trip. It’s poetic that Kim and Joel will be working together, as Kim’s dad Cole and Joel’s dad Charles also worked together many years ago, in a production at Carmel’s famous Forest Theater in which Cole directed and Charles acted.
