Kim Sidwell and I worked together on the Art Institute of Colorado's Alumni Association, where she was on the board, representing Photography. It was Kim's idea to create an AIC Alumni tent at the 2011 Downtown Denver Art Festival. I was the manager of that project and had worked with Kim previously, but it was through this tent project that I came to better know Kim and her impressive work ethic. Kim is an original thinker with integrity. She is not only an "idea" person, but she has the motivation and skill to see those ideas come to light. Kim has foresight and can anticipate many details and is able to boil those down to one seamless, bigger picture. Not only a great photographer, but a true professional, delightful to work with and passionate about her field. I endorse Kim Sidwell with great enthusiasm!

I hired Kim to take photos for two events for AIGA Colorado. The first being Bordo Bello, where she did a fantastic time lapse video of our event. Everyone loved it, and she was so great to work with, we hired her again for our Fellows Gala. Again, Kim did a great job shooting event photos for that very special night. She is easy to work with, professional and really works to ensure that the shots she provides are high quality.

Kim Sidwell is one of the most multitalented, dedicated and professional photographers I’ve ever worked with and I would highly recommend her. At HoodLamb CO we’ve hired Kim for multiple projects such as studio and style shots for our international catalog, documentary work and a time lapse. Working with Kim out on the field or in the studio is a pleasure. She is an exceptionally professional team player that always puts her mind to understanding her client’s needs and wishes and with a proactive attitude she thinks with you and brings on the solutions. In the editing room she’s got a great eye for detail and here too she amazes me with her professionalism. I hope to work with Kim on many more projects in the future.     

          -CiCi Dunn: Founder/Owner HoodLamb Colorado


Kim is fantastic to work with and the quality of her work and eye for great shots are second to none. Not to mention, her photo booth is the best out there. I don’t work with anyone else for events!!

Kim was a student in several classes that I taught at the Art Institute of Colorado. She was an excellent student with a great attitude and work ethic. She is intelligent, flexible, insightful and a pleasure to work with. I feel that she will be a valuable asset to those with whom she works and it is my honor to recommend Kim.     

          -Chuck Burggraf, Photography Instructor: Art Institute of Colorado


Kim did my first set of headshots when I first started my business and I LOVED them! She's very talented and ultra personable! Need business headshots? I highly recommend Kim!     

          -Meghann Conter, Marketing Coach: The Mistress of Marketing


Kim Sidwell is the go to photographer for any occasion or event. From studio portraiture to event photography, her creative and technical abilities surpass my expectations! As a client I appreciate her keen eye for detail, incredible work ethic, and her strive to push her work to the limit.

We at High Times Magazine interact with many photographers but few as professional and skilled as Kim Sidwell. 2013 was the third year she shot photos for us at our Denver Cannabis Cup and we couldn’t be more happy with the results. Her intimate knowledge of the cannabis community and keen eye for great photos results in fantastic images every time.     

          -Danny Danko, Senior Cultivation Editor: High Times Magazine


As the director of a national nonprofit, I’ve found that professional photography is key to our marketing strategy — both with promoting the organization itself and the events we host all around the country. Cannabis Camera has done a stellar job delivering quality images and event photography services since our founding in 2010 and as the official photography service of NCIA, is now the only photography firm we call upon.
