I’m a photographer and filmmaker specializing in editorial and portrait photography, and videos of all kinds. I’m based in New York City, but am often on the road in my adventure van #KaraVanne capturing stories across the United States and around the world.
I started my career as a film diehard specializing in traditional street photography. Along the way, I’ve experimented with diverse cameras, mediums, and techniques, and have shot everything from artist and chef portraits to desert landscapes and neighborhood trattorias. In 2015, I packed up my apartment and set out on a yearlong documentary photo adventure that has taken me from Paris to northern Mexico.
My past clients have included Columbia University, The Wall Street Journal, Google Creative Labs, Katonah Museum of Art, Tic Tac USA, Variety Magazine, Smart Car, Gen Art, Moroccan Oil, Frank151, Major Food Group, Men’s Journal, the Beatrice Inn, Just Food, Autograph Hotels, Dempseys NYC, and Coopers Pub.
