I love photography, I take especially nature photos. There are so many beautiful things to discover. Years ago I started to create fashion items with my natural designs. People love them, so I run a few on-demand-print-online shops with my designs. It's a joy for me to see my products sold all over the world. My customers like floral prints on fashion items like t-shirts, leggins, shoes. My patterns are unique, fresh and colorful. In fashion sets, I show how to style them. I always improve my photographic techniques and take part in online photo competitions. So I was proud to see one of my photos exhibited in a very great exhibition in France and one a year ago in Milano. I have still many new ideas to create, and I would work with more great companies.

Our readers would love to get to know you more Karin. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I love to discover the beauty in everything surrounding us, in nature, music, styles. There are so many great things increasing our joy and attracting the curious eye. Nothing is wrong in art. Everyone has a special way to describe, paint, photograph. On my way getting further as photographer I already met so many inspiring people. I love the support they gave me and each other. I am so grateful for this special occasions.
Karin, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
My passion is nature photography and creating new natural designs. I still have so many ideas. I want to brighten up peoples life with my products. It's a joy for me to see they like them. Its great to know there are people all over the world liking what I do and enjoying my artwork. As a photographer, I started ten years. I began to shoot all the beautiful things I see every day and posted them on my social media pages. People liked them. Then I looked for a way to sell my designs and started my online stores. For years I was rather occupated with creating and improving my photo techniques than posting on my social media pages. It's still a hobby, but I would love to make a living with my photo art. So I am looking for more companies to collab with.
Who is your inspiration in life Karin? How do you keep inspired?
As I said, nature is my inspiration. Since its still a second income for me I create when I feel this "flow" coming over me. Then I start, and sometimes I'm astonished about the result, how beautiful the natural designs look on the final designs. I keep to be inspired because my artwork is my passion, I love it. And I get even more inspired to watch the wonderful work of other talented artists like fashion designers, stylists, makeup artists, photographers, writers.
We all make mistakes Karin; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Photographer; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I wish a had started sooner with my photography, creating and selling my work. Bevor I started, people told me to never sell a single work. Long time I doubted. But others continued to encourage me. They told me how much they liked what I do and to go on with it. So now I am proud to have sold my work allover the world.
Karin , when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
I always try to do my best for everyone. Let's start and see how to handle it. There is always a right solution for a challenge.
Please tell us, Karin, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
Since I am a freelancer, I can work whenever I want and I most work when I feel the "flow", even in the middle of the night. I always work on different projects, and it's a joy for me.
Karin, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
There is so many points of views about many things. I have my opinion. But in photography art, there is not right ore false. It's important; people enjoy what you do.
Karin, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want with share to everyone. What is it and why?
I take part in online photography competitions. There are professional, and hobby photographers like the submitted photos. I'm so proud to have chosen two times a photo to be exhibited in a great photo exhibition.
Karin, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
It's always a joy to be creative with my work. I still have so many ideas to create. In fashion sets, I show how to style my fashion items. The great thing about this is to see people liking my work.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?
To NEVER EVER give up, to practice, practise, practise, to believe in yourself and to be realistic. If 100 people love your work, also 100000 will do this when they get to know your photography. So spread the word about your art.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I would like to design fashion items with my photo designs for more great companies. That would be wonderful.
Now for the best part Karin! Please upload 5-10 photos so we can get to see your work.
