“I was in college at a styling class and while I was styling a woman and showing her how to pose I started thinking “I wish I was in front of the camera instead of behind it.” Then I started researching and getting into modeling,” said the model in an interview with Bored Panda. “I don’t really consider myself a photographer since the majority of the time I’m only taking photos of myself, which I started doing to gain modeling experience.”

“It’s mostly just a lot of work and making sure everything is in place because you’re focus is on everything in front and behind the camera, not just one aspect of the shoot,” said Kihmberlie when asked about her creative process.

“Just go for it. I never had a backup plan. I’m not saying don’t have a plan B, but if you do have a plan B, don’t let it become a crutch where it turns into your safety net and now you’re too scared to go after what you really want to do,” advised Kihmberlie to aspiring models. “There’s always a way to create what you want, even if it looks impossible. There have been plenty of times where I’ve finished a shoot and surprised myself because I didn’t even know how I did or came up with it. I do always pray before my shoots so I know that helps.”

One day this guy just kind of figured "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending around the web. Something that always peeks his interests is old technology, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness so if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
