Elisabeth Caren is an editorial, advertising and fine art photographer based in Los Angeles (though she is often in New York and Paris). Elisabeth's lifetime experiences in theatre and film heavily influence her work, which has been described as classic, theatrical and cinematic. (Well, she did start writing and directing "plays" at 7 years old for her family after dinner at holiday gatherings with her young cousins as the cast and crew.) Elisabeth's fine art work has been exhibited in New York, London, Los Angeles, Miami and Toronto. She was on the short list for Young Masters Art Prize, and her work was selected for its program cover and marketing materials. Elisabeth recently was won PDN's Faces Portrait Contest in the celebrity category and was a finalist in Communication Arts 2017 Photography Awards . Her work exhibited at Photo Basel, Switzerland as a Finalist in the Focus/Photo LA/Stephen Cohen Gallery competition, and by placing in competitions with The MOPLA (Month of Photography Los Angeles) , APA LA, APA San Francisco and APA San Diego. She also won PDN's Faces 2014 and has been recognized with over 50 honorable mention acknowledgments by the 2012-2016 IPAs (International Photography Awards / Lucie Foundation). Elisabeth graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre and Film from Boston University's College of Fine Arts. She started her career in film development for acclaimed filmmakers Barry Sonnenfeld, David Friendly and Kathryn Bigelow, and then moved into entertainment publicity (representing filmmakers) and marketing (at a film studio) before finally pursuing her dream of becoming a photographer. (seriously living the dream!) She started as a unit production stills photographer and is a current member of IATSE Local 600 (International Cinematographers Guild) and behind-the-scenes with Associated Press. Her ten years of experience in the entertainment industry and especially in public relations and marketing, has given her tremendous insight into her clients' needs now. A few of Elisabeth’s favorite things: capturing an individual's unique beauty with the hope that it will help her/him see, feel and know it for her/himself, collaborating with other artists, traveling, all dogs, hedgehogs, paper greeting cards, Korean BBQ and parentheses (obviously).
