Described by past clients as professional, unique, exceptional, inspiring and highly recommended, UK based Kimberley Coole is available for assignment or commission both locally and internationally, specialising in travel photography. Her photographs have been featured in numerous publications, both on the covers and internally, she has been interviewed by high profile photography magazines, and she has undertaken assignments from both Tourism Boards and Airlines.
Kimberley’s work is represented exclusively by the world's leading stock photography agency, Getty Images, within the Lonely Planet Images Collection. When time permits, Kimberley travels to create new and exciting stock imagery to add to her already large and vibrant collection.
She is a member of the X-Rite’s prestigious Coloratti group. For followers of her work it will already be clear that colour plays a significant role in all of her imagery, so to have one of the world’s leading colour calibration companies and self declared “Colour Perfectionists” recognise this is one of Kimberley’s biggest achievements to date.
Kimberley was selected as a multi-image finalist for the prestigious Travel Photographer of the Year Award 2012. One of the images chosen for the finals received a commendation from the judges and was exhibited at the Royal Geographical Society in London in 2013.
Two of her great passions in life are travel and photography. "It is an amazing experience to observe and photograph such varied cultures and I see it as a great privilege that I am able to share the beauty and diversity of the world I've seen with others. The images taken by other photographers have inspired me throughout my many adventures, so now I hope my own contributions will inspire others to go out and see the world for themselves."
On the subject of Manfrotto gear, Kimberley had this to say: "I have been using Manfrotto gear since the very beginning of my career - each tripod I have used over the years has been strong, reliable, easy-to-use and low mass; what more could a photographer want!"
