Bold, creative and distinctive, Karina Patten’s work challenges conventional norms in both photography and society. With extensive experience in commercial portraiture, beauty and lifestyle photography, Karina’s eye for detail and clearly defined aesthetic have been carefully honed over the years.
Karina graduated from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 2014 with a BA in Commercial Photography, and after spending time travelling, has drawn inspiration from the cultures she experienced in her travels and the striking natural beauty of the rugged landscapes that surround her.
With a diverse body of work, Karina boasts a keen eye for portraiture, developing a strong understanding of the human body and the importance of light and framing. Her work ranges from highly subversive and confronting gender norms, to quietly emotive and subtle portraiture.
