Kim Bemis is a fine art photographer whose body of work includes amazing portfolios of landscapes, wildlife and people of India and of the Delmarva peninsula. According to Kim, 'In every fine art photograph, I seek to capture the beautiful, the sublime and the spiritual. I know that I am successful when I can express at least a glimpse of this in my photography.'
Kim has assembled a wonderful collection of fine art photography of India. Yet he especially enjoys his hometown visits that spark adventurous photo shoots influenced by the extraordinary wildlife and the beauty of the towns, beaches, marshes and flowers of the Eastern Shores of Maryland and Delaware.
Kim's work appears in art shows, galleries, shops and restaurants in the mid-Atlantic, including the Art League of Ocean City, Rehoboth Beach Museum and Delaware Beach Life Magazine. His artwork, 'Morning Has Broken', graces the cover of the book, 'While There's Still Time', by syndicated writer Eileen Colliani. Another photo, 'The Healing Tree', will appear on the cover of the forthcoming spiritual book by Millville resident Dr. Reverened McEntee.
Kim is a member of the Rehoboth Art League and the Art League of Ocean City. Generally, Kim's photographs receive light editing. According to Kim, 'Most of my shots are composed in the camera. When I prepare for a photo shoot, I already know the look that I wish to create. I look for a beautiful scene, find the correct angle and then wait for that perfect moment to release the shutter. Some shots such as animal and action shots must be composed in moments. Landscapes may require a wait of hours, days or weeks before all the elements come together.'
Kim is a teacher of the Transcendental Meditation program and a member of the Maharishi Purusha program. He lives deep in the Himalayas in India, practicing meditation and yoga. This practice provides the inspiration for the spirituality that he seeks to show in his fine art photography.
