Karin Michele Dailey is a Boston-based commercial photographer and digital artist, specializing in beauty and fashion photography.
She has a unique photoshop / retouching style. Check out the galleries and blog page for: concerts, music, bands, digital art, studio work, models, fashion, and editorial. She currently works in-house for an online flash sale company, shooting their campaigns, editorial, social media and product content.
Karin grew up in the Boston area, considers herself a "townie", but is available to travel well beyond the boundaries of Massachusetts: NYC, LA, Austin, Seattle, Miami, Tokyo...wherever you need her to go. She likes airplanes, if medicated.
Karin captures stunning natural light portraits, but also feels at home in the studio. She makes models feel comfortable on set with her humor, storytelling and spot-on fake British accent, translating into very natural, almost lifestyle images. Karin likes to experiment with Photoshop, creating digital art pieces that mix beauty and fashion with messy (but purposeful) paint and sketching. With Command Z at her complete disposal, there are no bounderies in creating abstract art over her images.
If she had to choose a favorite photographer, it would be impossible. All the greats: Ritts, Avedon, Roversi, Penn, Parks, Weber, Newton, Meisel... She finds inspiration from a lot of illustrators, designers and other visual art forms. Karin loves digital photography, but misses film and the slow, painful but satisfying dark room process. She recently purchased a used Pentax 6x7 and has enjoyed traveling back in time to: manual focus. There is something special about the look and feel of film.
Karin Dailey is currently seeking editorial and commerical photography assignments as well as other commissioned work.
