We designed this series to, not only showcase our community of amazing women entrepreneurs, but to also share their best tips, strategies and insights for wanna-be and established women entrepreneurs. Our mission for this community is to bring an incredible group of women together to inspire, motivate, and support women in business by networking, collaborating, and, in the case of this spotlight series, showing you why they shine so brightly!
I am so pleased to share my video interview with the very talented Kimberly Gauthier, a professional-amateur photographer, and founder of a fabulous photography blog called Through the Lens of Kimberly Gauthier. In our interview, Kimberly shares what she did to overcome her biggest challenge of self-promotion, how she discovered her web designer (a true diamond in the rough), and why giving your work away for free (even when you are starting out) is a bad idea.
Learn how Kimberly assists aspiring photographers in discovering the joys of using their cameras off auto mode, and how she managed to get a free car and major PR for a month. Enjoy the video interview!

Kimberly writes a photography blog, Through the Lens of Kimberly Gauthier, for amateur photographers who are learning on their own and appreciate the simple explanations for all things digital photography.
Kimberly has been in love with photography since high school. Her mom convinced her that it wasn’t practical, so instead of taking a photography class, she took French and Spanish instead. Today, she can’t speak either language, but is somewhat fluent in digital photography.
When she bought her first DSLR camera, she was stunned by how little information there was for her. It seemed like every book and DVD assumed that she already knew something about a DSLR camera, and she knew nothing. Her boyfriend took a forensics photography class a year into her photography adventure and every evening he explained something new to her about the camera. By the end of the week, Kimberly was on Cloud 9 and shooting in manual mode.
