Karen Toftera is London based dance, music and movement photographer.
Regular contributor of photography and archive photos to music magazines, newspapers and record labels.
“I love capturing the human body pushed to its limit in a heightened state of performance. Looking for the shot where athleticism, endurance, technical skill, grace, beauty and spirit comes together in performance art music and movement. On location, in the studio and shot on stage.”
I will do a bespoke creative studio setup specialising in
- Lighting Techniques
- In camera work
- Support and direction
Karen’s first UK festival shoot was the Reading festival in 2003. And since then she has contributed to international magazines and newspapers like Rolling Stone, Film Magasinet, PROG Magazine, Terrorizer, Dagbladet, Classic Rock and NME. And worked with bands and labels directly. She now works with live performance photography, in the studio and on location with dance photography, circus, music, fitness and movement photography.
Learned from the best in London School of Fashion, Nikon School, Rachel Neville and Pas De Deux Conference and Wex Photographic.
