Though small in stature, Kari Rowe leaves a big mark on all who meet her. From a very young age she was enamored with the world of nature and the art of photography. She grew up surrounded by cameras, barefoot, and homeschooled in the woods. This upbringing has helped shape her drive, passion and caring approach to each moment she has the honor of creating with whomever she get to work with.

While working as full time photo assistant to Snowboard Photography Godfather, Trevor Graves, she completed the graphic design program at Portland State. Walking away with numerous scholarships and awards, including best final portfolio.

After learning the design tools she needed to usher in the age of digital art, she followed her heart and continued her career as the full time photographer at Nemo HQ in Portland OR.

After 6 years as their in house photographer she became the manager, producer, art buyer, content creator and studio director before embarking on a solo career.

Currently based out of OR, WA and CA. A nomad at heart, she travels the world as a freelance photographer, art director, indigenous activist, journalist, jewelry maker and visual storyteller.

Kari’s work appears in the pages of countless magazines, catalogs, websites, zines, installations, galleries, posters, television shows, billboards, buildings, concerts, albums, art shows, contests, news outlets and buyer’s guides as well as having received international acclaim for her photography.
