About Karen Cohen
I loved photography from the moment my uncle placed his Pentax Spotmatic 35mm camera in my hands. I got one for myself and enrolled in the Professional Photography Course at the Germain School of Photography, NYC.
I was 22 years old and knew exactly how I wanted to spend the rest of my days.
Two years of training turned into decades of working behind the lenses of cameras and enlargers. Darkroom printing was my passion and livelihood back in my early days. Weddings & studio portraits paid well. My adventures as a freelance photographer in the 80’s led me deep into the punk rock world that paid practically nothing but was so worth every minute I spent!
Present: Digital Photography is my passion and Photoshop is my tool to manipulate images into mythical, magical visions.
In 2012, the Aquarian Weekly Magazine, based in New Jersey, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland, Ohio. My work as photojournalist, K.B.Shoots, is in the permanent archives of the Library of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
