Karen is passionate about wildlife - especially Scottish wildlife. She can't think of anything better than being out in the countryside armed with her camera watching and photographing the amazing creatures we share our planet with.
When it comes to photography her aspiration is to capture images that show animals in their habitat behaving naturally. She doesn't believe in photographing just to tick off a species. In an ideal world, if she didn't have a day job and a dog who doesn't travel, she'd be up in the Scottish Highlands every weekend learning as much as she could about the wild inhabitants. As it is she spends all her vacations in Scotland – “we are so lucky to have such a diverse and interesting range of wildlife here in my home country and personally I don't see the need to travel further at this time”.
Her favourite animals to photograph are otters, puffins and mountain hares - partly because all three are observed and photographed totally in the wild, no baiting, no set-ups. This for her is the most rewarding way to photograph and observe animals; it's an honour to share space with these creatures.
She does have a day job too, working at BBC Radio Scotland on their online content. This involves live music photography, filming and editing.
