Kimberly Yatsko is a professional photographer based in Los Angeles, California. Her work has been described as romantic, edgy, and clean. These qualities contribute to her style and Kimberly nails it every time. Kimberly bought her first camera at the age of 19 with the money she had saved from extra modeling gigs. While working part time as a model, Kimberly began to take interest in the beautiful ads of Italian designers that she saw in fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and W Magazine. Her love and her passion for photography quickly went full force and she knew she needed to leave her hometown of Overland Park, Kansas and move to a town where there is a larger market for photographers and fashion.
After arriving to Los Angeles, she worked for Celebrity Photographer Matthew Mitchell, and shortly thereafter she started to work for Fashion Photographer Ash Gupta. While establishing her business as Yatsko Photo, Kimberly decided to take her passion for photography internationally. She worked on a job in Central America for a documentary film that will be released in 2014. And following her return, she worked throughout Europe doing documentary, portrait, and fashion photography.
What resonates with Kimberly most while working for Mr. Gupta and with her traveling experiences was how she learned to communicate with, and direct her subjects. The dynamic combination of experience and connection reflects in all the images she creates today. Armed with intensity, passion, and a contagious laughter, she commands control of her set and earns the respect and trust that her models and team have come to love and enjoy with every shoot.
