Kim Weston in his studio

About Kim Weston

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.

Education

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 example.

Cameras

Kim Weston’s first camera was a Rolleiflex, as he got older he photographed with a 4×5 Linhof ( a gift from his uncle Brett), then he switched to a 8×10 Calumet, and now uses an 8×10 Arca Swiss. Lately, Kim has been photographing with a medium format camera, a Mamiya 67 that he inherited from his father Cole Weston.

Format

His main body of work consists of silver gelatin contact prints made from 6×7 (56mm x 69mm), 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.

Lifestyle

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.

Kim is an educator and a mentor to young photographers. The Weston Scholarship Fund was established in 2004 to support high school and college students studying fine art photography in Monterey County.
