Welcome to the photographic world of Karren Kraemer. I'm a freelance photographer who specializes in wildlife, nature, youth sports and real estate photography.
Photographing wildlife and nature is very personal for me. I find the sense of peace and oneness that envelops me in the natural world is one of life's greatest pleasures. Nature inspires me, and I hope you too are able to experience some of the awe and inspiration I felt when making these images. Perhaps you will join me as an advocate, to ensure these amazing creatures and places can survive in the wild, as they are an inherent part of our planet earth.
I also enjoy capturing images that allow our young athletes to relive their games, athleticism and actions, at the moment they were giving their all to succeed. Their faces light up as they view themselves in action shots; powerful young athletes with an intense look of concentration, joy or sorrow on their faces. To give you mind peace of mind, I would like you to know who you are dealing with. I have been a teacher and principal in the Victor Valley for nearly 30 years. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts from San Jose State University, with "Great Distinction". I also have a Masters Degree from Claremont College, and grandchildren of my own in youth sports.
Unfortunately our world is not as safe as it used to be, and we need to be a lot more protective. To give coaches and parents peace of mind, I follow the Society of Sport & Event Photographers standard and have voluntarily completed and successfully passed fingerprinting and criminal background checks by the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department. These clearances help ensure you are dealing with a reputable photographer.
I also provide the highest level of customer service and resolve concerns with speed and fairness.
I enjoy working with people and I am also open to ideas you might have, so give me a call!
