About

Hello! I’m Karin Markert, your local photographer on location and in the studio. I live, eat, and breathe photography – yay! I started in a darkroom in 1983, and spent a couple years processing photos before I actually started clicking away with my manual, film camera. Fast forward, oh… a few decades, and I’m still actively photographing almost everything around me, capturing history as it happens in our families and in our communities.

I’m excited to now be offering portrait and event photography at the First City Photo and Frames studio and on location in the Kansas City metro area. In addition, I’ll be teaching photo workshops, hosting portrait parties in studio and fun photo walks in the local area.
