Karen Woo (@heykarenwoo) is reputable photographer who is becoming one of Australia’s multi-facet creatives specialising in fashion, street style and editorial photography.
After graduating from Bachelor of Science and Masters of Business Systems at Monash University, Karen worked as a Senior Business Consultant for 8 years ranging from Federal Government to Financial Institutions. In 2011, she took a leap of faith and pursued her dream career as a Photographer; and successfully opened her first photographic studio Finessence Photography – specialising in wedding and portraits.
By chance on a visit to a luxury vintage store at Madam Virtue she bought a timeless Chanel clutch. Upon paying, the owner Dean Hewitt and Karen started chatting about their obsession with haute couture and accessories, and Karen’s photography was brought up. Without any hesitation, Dean invited Karen to an exclusive photo shoot the following day with famous Fashion Blogger – Bryan Boy.
From that kismet visit at Madam Virtue, and overwhelming support of her family and fashion friends, Karen moved on from capturing wedding and portraits to solely focus on working with fashion brands to create street style, fashion editorials and campaigns. She has recently completed projects with international and local brands such as Mercedes Benz, 3INA, Calvin Klein, Bally and Samsonite just to name a few. Along with capturing international events such as Paris, London and New York Fashion week and even shooting in her hometown at Melbourne Fashion Week.
When Karen isn’t working on her next creative project, you will find her with family and friends, travelling, cooking and doing reformer pilates.
