My name is Karen Brown. I am a photographer based in Hobart, Tasmania. I am very busy working as a wedding photographer and I also do many portraits and corporate and journalistic assignments.
Basically I am a People Photographer and whatever I do, I always try to photograph real people in a beautiful way.
I have 20 + years of experience in photographing professionally, I first studied photography at the Art School at the Univeraity of Tasmania and then went travelling around the world for a few years.
I lived in Amsterdam, The Netherlands for about 5 years before I returned to Australia.This is when I started out as a photographer, working in a professional camera shop and photographing my first weddings.
Since then I continued to photograph: weddings, children, parents and grandparents, business people, teachers, chefs and waiters, politicians, musicians and factory workers and many ordinary and not so ordinary people on quite a few of our planet's continents.
Basically I have always photographed people and I can't think of anything which could be more interesting.
I really love working as a photographer here in Tasmania, and in everything I do I always enjoy capturing some of the excitement and the emotion of the occassion, be it a wedding or a portrait session.
I work together with my husband Marcel van Ommen who helps me manage Karen Brown Photography as a Climate Friendly Business, which basically means that we try to be a carbon neutral small business, following ethical business practices.
