  1. Hey. I was just wondering how much you charge for a full days shoot? I am currently launching a new online fashion boutique and looking for a photographer who could help take photos once a week so i can launch on my website! The best example i can give you is the photos you took of your “Georgie Dempsey” shoot. Except it isnt swimwear, i am going for actual womans clothing! I am looking for someone who has their own equipment so the white backdrop/lights etc. And looking to shoot outside as well. Im trying to find the best price and photographer so would be great to hear from you as i love your photographs! Thanks!

    • Hi Angela, so lovely to hear from you and thank you so much for enquiring about my photography style and work! Glad you love my photographs! Sure, let’s chat further on your brief. Please email me at hello@karenwoo.com.au and I try my best to respond soon. Karen

  2. I was looking through your work and I love it. I was wondering if I can do any shoot with you like a fashion street style shoot etc,
    Kind regards
    Elizabeth Liet

  3. Hi, looked through the images and impressed. Am I able to get in contact with you to arrange a photo shoot for a promotional/ modelling portfolio?
    Regards,
    Priya

    • Hi Priya, thsnk you so much and great to hear from you and yes of-course, lets chat further. Sending you an email shortly x Karen

  4. Hello Karen, my name is Kuol, im 17 years old from Victorian, and own a online store, based on “hiphop clothing” just wanted to get a estimated quote on how much a couple photos with you in your studio would cost!

  5. Hi Karen,

    I’m interested in doing a new portfolio as mine is quite old now. How much do you charge?
    Thanks,

    Petrina

  6. Hi Karen,
    I’m looking to organize a full modeling portfolio for my 14 year old daughter.
    She’s interested in catwalk & fashion modelling.
    Given her body type & height, I tend to agree that’s the area she should look at pursuing.

    I’ve looked at many photographers, but so far your work really stands out as being modern & a bit edgy.
    If we are going to do this, I want to give her the best portfolio possible before we even look at finding an appropriate agent.
    We would also like you to meet us first & advise on the type of looks she should go for in this portfolio so we can purchase the right outfits to go with these images before the shoot. .

    look forward to hearing from you.
    Regards Zoran

    • Hi Zoran, thank you so much for leaving me a message and enquiring about my photography services. I would love to help, so I will email you directly. Thank you and be in touch soon x Karen

  7. Dear Karen,
    How are you?
    I have got the your website by searching engine. Love your work!
    My name is Junyi, and I have been in the makeup and hair industry for 10 years now, looking forward to expand some creative opportunity with the Melbourne base photographer.
    Could you have a look my website in your convenience? And hoping to work with you in future.

    Kind Regards,
    Cherri Junyi Zhu

  8. Hi Karen,

    I came across your website and am extremely impressed by the quality of your work.

    I’d like to know whether you need assistance for any of your future shoots. I’d like to get some additional experience with shooting fashion photography; I have photographed fashion before but need more experience to hone my style even further and I feel that with your guidance can help me achieve that.

    I’d be willing to assist you for free to gain some valuable experience. If you have any questions please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Bayu

  9. Hi Karen, me and my boyfriend want to have a pre wedding photoshoot in Melbourne , I wonder if you shoot pre wedding just like your street style shoot for us? If possible can you tell me the rate and option ? Thanks a lot
    Ps: I just sent you an email, hope to hear from you soon

    • Hey Phoebe, thanks for your email! Hope you got my reply and would love to create a couples street style shoot x Karen

  10. Hi Karen, I wanted to get a modelling portfoloio ready. I’m 17 years and I was wondering if we could get in touch for some additional information regarding this.
    Thank you

  11. Hi Karen!

    My partner and I are currently looking for someone to shoot our very first collection / campaign in a couple of months!

    It will be a very clean cut (minimal) feel type shoot within a studio!

    We’ll be hiring a studio out for half the day (5 hours)

    What are your rates for half days? or generally just per hour?

    Thanks heaps!

    Warm Regards
    Jos
