IM GOTTLIEB-WAKER, Music, Film/TV Still Photographer & Author (Bob Marley and the Golden Age of Reggae, published by Titan 2010, and new book "On Set with John Carpenter launches in October 2014) presents “On Set with John Carpenter" at Clickers & Flickers’ Halloween photo-networking dinner. (Halloween costumes are optional, but encouraged).
Kim Gottlieb-Walker’s incredibly varied career has covered everything from classic rock and roll, reggae and politics in the 60’s and 70’s to working on major motion pictures and television shows. While still at UCLA (where she received a BA in Motion Picture production) and shortly thereafter, she shot for underground LA newspapers and magazines like Crawdaddy and Music World.
Her classic portrait of Jimi Hendrix was shot when she was only 20 and her High Times cover of Bob Marley remains their most popular cover, ever. She also shot the stills for John Carpenter’s “Halloween,” “The Fog,” “Christine” and “Escape from New York” and worked at Paramount for nine years as the production photographer for “Cheers” and five years for “Family Ties” as well as the pilots and several episodes for Star Trek: "The Next Generation" and "Deep Space 9" and Steven Spielberg's "Amazing Stories" at Universal. She is one of the elected representatives for still photographers on the National Executive Board of IATSE Local 600, the International Cinematographers Guild.
Her first coffee-table photo book “Bob Marley and the Golden Age of Reggae” was published by Titan Press (UK), distributed by Random House (USA) in November 2010. She had her first solo gallery show of photos from that book in London at the PROUD Camden. Her first USA solo show based on the photos from the Bob Marley book, was at KM Fine Arts in West Hollywood in early 2014. Her newest photo book "On Set with John Carpenter" launches in October 2014. Her website is www.Lenswoman.com.
"Kim's work possesses the rare quality that far exceeds the expectations of a typical film unit still photographer. She captures a moment in time that lets the viewer become a part of the collaboration, camaraderie, and fun that is inherent on the film sets on which she has worked. Her pictures are a fascinating glimpse at the other side of the action, and tell a deeper story for fans of these great films to appreciated. Rather than just document the process, she invites us to be a part of it, and that is what sets her work apart." ~ Malek Akkad (owner of the Halloween movie franchise).
