Kara is a classically trained photographer and freelance Art Director.  Having a degree in photo from the University of Georgia, she’s brought to life an extensive knowledge ranging from digital, film and collodian processes.  She then naturally expanded into commercial design and fabrication.   Kara has had the privilege to work not only within the framed image but also the curation of the page it lives in.

Kara is a Freelance Art Director, Photographer and Stylist available for hire.
