Debra Klomp Ching is the owner and director of the Klompching Gallery in New York, founded in 2007 in partnership with Darren Ching. The gallery specializes in the sale and exhibition of contemporary fine art photography, mostly by emerging and mid-career artists.

Klompching Gallery presents approximately 6-7 exhibitions each year.
Mrs Ching's experience in the photography industry spans more than two decades, during which time she has participated in several notable photography review festivals, panel presentations and conferences, curated photography exhibitions in Europe, Canada and the US, judged several photography awards and contributed to both online and print publications on the subject of photography. She is an international adviser to the Executive Director of CENTER (Santa Fe), adviser to the Center for Fine Art Photography (Fort Collins), a photo editor for At Length Magazine and consultant to photographers and collectors.
Mrs Ching is interested in seeing cohesive bodies of work, as well as works-in-progress that possess a high level of craftsmanship, conceptual strength, and a unique artistic vision suitable for exhibition and sale within the fine art photography market. She is interested in viewing portfolios of actual photographic prints, as opposed to books and screen-based presentations. She is not interested in viewing commercial, stock or fashion photography and has no interest in graphic nudes. Advice and feedback can be given on editing, print quality, editioning/pricing, marketing/promotion and overall creative vision.
Klompching Gallery has offered exhibition and representation opportunities to photographers with exceptional work that meets the gallery's curatorial programming and aesthetic sensibilities. A number of photographers represented or exhibited by Klompching Gallery, have been discovered at portfolio reviews.
