About

FASHION . LIFESTYLE . TRAVEL

PREVIOUS CLIENTS

Kara Mercer is a commercial photographer ,art director, and producer based in Seattle, Washington. She specializes in developing content for design, travel, hospitality and lifestyle brands. Known for her use of light and her eye for creative direction, Kara believes every image should stand strongly on its own while also contributing a unique yet complementary voice when serving as part of a collection. Her work is influenced as much by minimalism and thought-provoking conversations as it is by contemporary studies in human psychology and the emotive, sometimes ethereal feel of romanticism. With these influences, she seamlessly combines playful narratives with a timeless aesthetic for commercial media campaigns (print and digital) and editorial work. 

Today, her work has been featured in Rue Magazine, Medium Format, Domino, FujiFilm, and more.
