About Karyn Lee, Master of Photographic Arts & Calgary Photographer

My name is Karyn Lee, and I am a Nationally Accredited, Award Winning Calgary Photographer and graphics artist, living in High River, Alberta and serving the Foothills. I hold a Master of Photographic Arts designation from the Professional Photographers of Canada.

I never really intended to become a professional photographer – it sort of happened by accident. I never purchased a camera thinking “Gee, one day I’d like to be a professional photographer.”

I never even thought “One day I’d actually like to be a good hobbyist photographer.”

I just wanted to experiment and play. I wanted to try things, and really see what my camera could do.

And that’s it. I never woke up one morning planning on becoming a professional photographer. I just woke up every morning wanting to learn something more. And along the way, I became a professional photographer. There is no one defining moment I can look back on and say with any sort of certainty “Yes, this is when I officially became a pro.”

I only know that I love my job, I love my clients, and I want to keep learning.

I have many interests in photography, but I find most of my clients are Businesses looking for corporate coverage and professional head shots, Clubs and Organizations like dance schools and hockey clubs, as well as families seeking portrait sessions.

As for me, I am 34 years old. I’m a wife, and a mother.

It is extremely important to me to keep my skills up to date, and to gauge my progress through the participation in professional organizations.

I still watch cartoons. I don’t like reality TV.

calgary photographerI like to watch sports and events that are off the beaten path, like curling, gymnastics and fencing. But nothing beats a good old fashioned game of Hockey. Go Flames, Go!
I like all sorts of music, and I sing it at the top of my lungs quite shamelessly and often in public. My dancing could use some improvement.

If I had endless amounts of time and no responsibility, I’d spend all day with my horse. I am very passionate about my Guinea Pigs, Pikachu and Tamao.

I like to make cupcakes, mostly just so I can eat the batter.

I do not like  paper cuts, the smell of seafood, holes in my socks and scary movies.
