Karin got her first camera at the age of 8, a flashy hot pink Concord 110. She spent entire days outside taking pictures of cats, plants, and her siblings.

Art was always Karin's favourite class, and when that terrifying moment known as high school graduation came, she decided to continue the study of her favourite subject. She graduated from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada with a BA in Art & Design 4 years later.

Karin got her start after university as a school portrait photographer with Josten's successor Lifetouch Portrait Studios, then moved on to work for Edmonton-based media agency Play It By Ear Productions.

Today, Karin Locke is a freelance photographer and graphic designer based in Melbourne, Australia. Her passion is photographing people, whether it be at events, in the studio, or while pursuing the latest conceptual shoot she's planned. Karin loves travel, music, cats, food, beer and laughter.
