KARLEN KLEINKOPF—CO-FOUNDER & FORUM DIRECTOR
I am a wife to a wonderful husband of 20 years and mother to my sweet eight year-old daughter. I have always loved photography, but it wasn’t until my daughter was born that photography became a true passion for me. I am a self-taught photographer, and am completely obsessed with everything about this exciting and challenging industry. Laura and I co-founded this forum in 2010 (formerly Rock the Shot). Our shared passion and a desire to help photographers improve their skills and build better businesses inspired us to create an innovative platform where both new photographers and seasoned professionals could share their work, knowledge, and experience with one another.
