Karissa is an emerging freelance photographer based in Texas and California with a unique vision that is driven towards fashion and automotive photography. Graduate from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, calling the Bay Area her second home. Karissa currently resides in Los Angeles and is loving the SoCal car scene. She is a hands-on individual that enjoys working with equipment, staging and controlling what lies within the frame. Intrigued by cars, she has a passion to tear apart motors and build personal cars, which has fueled her desire to capture the design of a vehicle. Inspired by the beauty within our world, Karissa seeks for the perfect setting on location; she then creates a hyper real world with dynamic lighting and postproduction to evoke wonder through her images. For her professional photo shoots, she travels across the nation to photograph and admire other automotive builds. Aside from creating photographic artwork, Karissa enjoys attending motorsport events, exploring the rural beauty of the outdoors and working in her shop to complete her next project. She has accomplished fully building her 94 Mazda RX-7 (FD) 13B Rotary and is currently in the process of fabricating her 87 Mazda RX-7 (FC) to fit an LS3 which will be her track/drift car.
