I’m Karené. I am a photographer with a love for people, food, colour and light. I am happiest when my hands are getting dirty – be that with paint, charcoal, ink, flour or olive oil! I have an art background that influences the way I see and photograph things.
I come from vibrant South Africa, a place where mealtimes tend to be daily occasions. As a child the kitchen table was the centre of our home, where life was discussed and flavours were created. Now I enjoy sitting around my own big dining room table with good wholesome food, lively conversation, a glass of red wine and music. I believe in celebrating life.
a quick history: I studied Bachelor of Fine Arts with Photography as a major. I photographed for a commercial photographic studio. I assisted two of the top food photographers in Johannesburg, I learned a tremendous amount and loved it! I started a family, photographed my family and then I started my own portraiture studio. I began to build up a network of wonderful clients and I held photography classes and then…
… we were transferred to Germany, where I am now taking some time off to simply PAUSE, enjoy daily life and work on my photographic portfolio.
