Kim Kuhlman

Dr. Kim Kuhlman earned a Ph.D. in Engineering Physics from the University of  Wisconsin-Madison in 1998 and fatefully hitched her career to NASA, working at Caltech, JPL and the Planetary Science Institute. Funding cuts resulted in a career pivot, away from imaging individual atoms in rocks and minerals to imaging pretty much everything else. She earned her Certified Professional Photographer degree from the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) in 2015, and her Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman degrees from PPA in 2018. She was a Silver Medalist in International Print Competition in 2018 and a Bronze Medalist in 2020. Her PPA Loan image, “Say What?” was nominated for a Grand Imaging Award (GIA) in 2017. Kim has been a PPA Certification Liaison since 2018 and is currently a Juror-in-Training with PPA. Kim is currently a member of PPA, the American Society of Photographers (ASP), the Intermountain Professional Photographers Association (IPPA), and the Professional Photographers Guild of Houston (PPGH).
