I'm Kristen Tomkowid, a fine art portrait photographer doing cool and fun shiz wherever I'm at. How did I get here, you may ask. Well it's a bit of story but here we go. Back in ye olden times of MySpace, I wanted to be real cool and have like the best profile photo, so I started taking the standard mirror selfies. Then Facebook happened, and I got a mega-sweet digital camera with a flip-around screen turning the selfies into self portraits. In the years following, I minored in photography in college and got my M.S. in photography from Syracuse, won a few awards, went to the Eddie Adams Workshop and now I do mostly wedding and portrait photography so I can afford to do all I want to do in life. I'm keeping on, keeping on.
