Thanks to club member John Edwards for providing the detailed info below:

On May 4th our guest speaker will be Kim Stone. I credit Kim for inspiring me to get back into photography for love of the art rather than just a way to record... my family and life events.

Kim Stone’s love of photography is inspired by her family and one other thing; horses. Kim is a Maine native who has been riding since age four. She began actively taking photographs in High School and worked as a sports photographer in college developing her own film. Many of her photos at Gordon College were selected for publication to include the
yearbook.

Over the years, family vacations in Maine created exciting photo opportunities and a great learning environment focusing the camera on her active family. More recently, Kim has been working summers in the saddle, roping, doctoring, and handling cattle on a large ranch in Oregon. Ranch life allowed her to continue developing her photography skills highlighting open spaces and the life of the cowboy. Her love of horses and working as a cowboy alongside them helped her create intensely dramatic images.

Kim ‘s photography has been featured nationally and internationally in several publications including, The Paint Horse Journal, Western Horseman, American Quarter Horse Journal, Eclectic Horseman, and Horseman of Czech Republic well as the following books: The Alvord Ranch Experience by Kim Stone, Cow Horse Confidence by Martin Black, Evidence Based Horsemanship by Martin Black and Dr. Steve Peters. Kim currently lives in Brunswick, Maine.

Please be sure to come to this special club meeting and listen to Kim tell her story and show us her beautiful images of the wide open spaces of the West and the people who work hard and live there.
