maginei photography

focused, passionate, imaginative creator

about kimberley bermender

I bring dreams into the world.

Whether working for commercial clients or on fine art montage series, I am fascinated by connecting with people through photography. In a medium where anything is possible, my process brings my work from imagination to representation. With over fifteen years working with creative teams, I am highly skilled at bringing a concept to life, including imagery and narrative. I assemble the elements of a story into a unified vision to meet my clients’ brand vision, or my own creative concept.

My tools are light, image, symbol and text.

For me, photography succeeds in environments of collaboration . I have a Master of Arts in Photography from Academy of Art University, and a Bachelors degree in Creative Writing.  I teach photography and poetry classes through the Cabrillo College Extension Program in Santa Cruz, CA. I am proud to have served on the Board of Directors of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) Northern California chapter for over two years.

Prior to dedicating myself to maginei , I spent a successful career in the enterprise software industry where I focused on web and product marketing. My years in the corporate world provided the foundation for launching my own successful small business.
