Karen Thom discovered her passion for photography and finds the very personal and private experience of capturing and creating images fulfilling and cathartic. For Karen, less is definitely more, as she is drawn to the subtle and seductive beauty and movement of nature. Because so much of life is so structured, she finds it very comfortable that there are no rules, boundaries or expectations in her creative process.
Tell us a little about yourself. Where are you from?
Hi, I am Karen Thom. I am Canadian and currently live on the beautiful southern west coast of British Columbia, Canada. My picturesque surroundings (and the news) remind me daily how lucky I am.
What are your passions and hobbies?
My first passion is my family and friends... always. But I have always been a hobbyist and love and cherish the moments when I have the freedom to create. In terms of these ever-changing passions, I can be moderately obsessed (I hope). Lately I have dabbled in woodworking, graphic design, and currently photography; sometimes all of the above. A perfect and fulfilling evening for me is when I am lying in my bed (aka my office) with my laptop and a new batch of photos to look at. That moment when you know you have captured something special is so exciting and satisfying
Although I am happy with my successes so far, I have barely scratched the surface. Photography inspires me to be open-minded, imaginative, curious and not afraid to take opportunities to click. Although I am usually goal-oriented, I do not have a goal in mind and enjoy tackling this aspect of my life one day at a time.
