Kami Couch is an old soul who grew up learning from the master storytellers: her Dad and Grandma June. Her favorite stories were the ones they told about their adventurous lives in Alaska. Being a 4th generation AK commercial fisherman is one of her fondest titles to this day.
She was given camping gear and a disposable camera for her 9th birthday and used the entire roll of film on her camping trip & flowers she found in the woods.
She kept a photo blog at age 15, to record her life and surroundings, and soon, a bride found it and asked her to photograph her wedding. Word began to spread, and more jobs were booked.
She keeps her home base in WA State, which is an 84sq foot tiny house (The Kamishak) and travels around the world to take photos, write & build relationships for a living.
What she’s come to realize, is that what makes her tick today is the very same thing that made her 9-year-old self tick. Like finding those flowers hidden in the woods, she loves finding people’s stories & presenting them to the world, where their beauty that might otherwise have been missed can be shown to all.
She still loves flowers and they may be considered as a form of payment. ;)
