BIO

A renowned name in the world of beauty photography and film-making, Karina has worked all over the globe, from Dior to Diesel and Guerlain to Givenchy.

 

Her passion for photography started at a very young age. She began to work in labs by the age of 15, then she turned into a professional photographer when she was 19.

 

In 1999, she produced and directed her first commercial. Two years later, two of her spots featured in the shortlist for the perfume category in Cannes.

 

Her work has an enigmatic sensuality with commercials evoking a powerful sense of place and passion. Whether its for perfume, cosmetics, luxury goods, cars or even fine chocolate, the purity and almost tactile quality of her aesthetic are evident in everything she shoots. 

 

A graduate of the world-renowned Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Karina has lived in London, Tokyo and LA. She is based in Paris and New York nowadays, and travels frequently across the continents for her international assignments as director and photographer.
