While dealing with a severe bout of post-partum depression, a friend loaned Kym Scott a camera. In an instant, she was hooked.

In photography, she found renewed vigor and a new vision and passion. She went on to receive a Certificate in Professional Photography from the Boston University Center for Digital Imaging Arts. She and her husband also owned and operated Chimera Gallery for a few years.

As social media gained popularity, Kym found herself on Facebook looking to connect with other Black women in photography. When she could not find what she was looking for, she decided to create a group of her own. She wanted the group to be a place where Black female photographers could offer support and develop strong bonds around their art.

Out of the Facebook group grew this organization, Black Female Photographers (BFP). At over 5,980 members strong, this organization is Kym Scott’s crowning achievement in a photography career that spans over a decade.

Kym Scott lives in New England with her husband and son. She specializes in fine art photography.
