Born and raised in Los Angeles, Kim Rapoport is a photographer specializing in street photography and travel photography. Kim first picked up a camera when she was little (and when "1 Hour Photo" stores were in vogue) and hasn't looked back since. Much of her subject work either deals with her hometown of Los Angeles or of her travels around California. One day, she hopes to branch out and photograph concerts and musicians.
Much of my work takes place in my hometown of Los Angeles. I love my community, and I love the body of work I put out by going out and shooting whenever I can. Some days, it's just down the 5 to Burbank just to get a few photos. Other days, I go to Downtown L.A. or Hollywood and end up with well over a hundred photos with a few strong ones to spare for a portfolio, such as this image.
