NATURAL BORN ARTISTS | RAW BROOKLYN SHOW | Kimberly Mufferi | Fine Art Photographer

Happy Tuesday awesome people who read my blog!  I wanted to share my amazing experience from this past Sunday at the Raw Artists Brooklyn Show - ENCOMPASS, and I wanted to say THANK YOU!

I have had the most amazing few months, being flown out to Vegas to shoot the Chippendales (a post on that coming), a most epic wedding season (Martha's Vineyard among the amazingness, lots of posts from this season coming soon as well), staying busy in NYC shooting epic events and DJs (yep more posts from these too), and then getting called to show my art at RAW BROOKLYN!!!...  I am so grateful to have had the experiences, clients, and friends, who see my vision and support me, always.  It literally makes me smile and feel warm and fuzzy inside....  I mean, how lucky am I to have amazing people in my life, and these opportunities?  I am grateful, and I thank you.

For pretty much my entire life (since I was old enough to hold things without dropping them, though my clumsiness is still questionable) I have had a camera in my hand.  I have also always dreamed of travelling and taking photos of people and places, and things around me... sharing my vision of how I see the world, and sharing these moments.

I was a bit nervous going into this, this was the first time I would have my work, printed and on display for people to come look at, and judge.  I have always wanted to do this, but actually doing it... that's another thing.  I was contacted by RAW this past summer to show my work, and I pulled together what I had, printed my photos on large canvases, and said, 'Let's do this!'  And my goodness was it the best experience ever!

RAW Artists Organization creates a welcoming experience for up and coming artists to get their work out there.  RAW shows bring together artists from all genres; photography, visual, performing, fashion, music, DJs, and make-up artists, into one epic event.  If you were not able to make it this past Sunday to ENCOMPASS at Output in Williamsburg, then come out on November 24 to the next show, for the SEMI-FINALISTS!  Not only did you all vote to get me into the top 5, the judges selected me as one of 3 semi-finalists for the RAW Brooklyn photographer category!!  YES!! :)  So if you are in the area on November 24 I would love to see you at the show, and I promise the event will be fun and stimulating, and the winners will be announced!  And for those that made it to my last show, I would love to see you again... good times, obviously!  Finally, if you are not in the NYC area or if you are an artist yourself, check out and see all the places these events are going on, they are all over the country and the world, get involved!

This past Sunday, I was able to share my passion, my work, my vision, my life.... and it felt so good, like AWESOME! ... Like... I am still so blown away by my experience and I cannot wait to continue to do it.  I had so many of my amazing friends and fellow artists come out to join me at the show!  I also had so much help setting up, and handling the influx of traffic as people came to look at MY work!  I was floored, people were stopping by my area, and staring, and buying my work!

Check out the photos and slide shows below, of one of my favorite days of my life so far...  and THANK YOU THANK YOU  THANK YOU!
