BIO International photographer Kareem Quow was born in Brooklyn, New York and is based in Atlanta, Georgia. He specializes in beauty, high fashion and conceptual photography he spent the beginning of his professional career working in the architectural field. As a lover of varying mediums of artistic expressions, Kareem has always been passionate about the use of creativity in every aspect of his life. Along with his love for photography and knowledge, he is an accomplished retoucher, architect and poet. Mr. Quow has earned the opportunity to work with a diverse and talented range of models, hair stylists, designers and makeup artists. His work has been featured in print and online fashion catalogs, book covers: Institute Magazine, Lucy's Magazine, iMUTE Magazine, Tinsel Tokyo Magazine, MOD Magazine, XEX Magazine, Flawless Magazine, Zen Magazine, Ellements Magazine, Elegant Magazine, AfroStyle Magazine, Devour Magazine, Honey Magazine, Fashion Calendars and the International Library of Photography, to name a few. KQ Photography has been commissioned all over the world: New York, L.A, Miami, Atlanta, Canada, Germany, China, Indonesia, Paris, London, South America and the Caribbean. His style, lighting, selections of locations and concepts have brought his work much acclaim. His desire for growth is insatiable; Kareem continuously searches for innovative ideas and techniques to improve as an artist, and with every new project expand the limits of creativity even further. The Foundation of Kareem’s signature style is influenced heavily by his art and architectural background. The use of sightlines, lighting, perspective, and composition help to guide his cameras aim. The imagery is influenced by contrasts of concepts and emotions: Sometimes cinematic: dark, moody and ominous, and at other times glowing, ethereal and serene. Though his subjects and technique change and invariably evolve his images still possess a style that is distinctly his own. “I’m inspired by inspiration. My work is driven by the desire to spark interest in the subject matter by expressing it in a way that has not yet been realized, drawing attention to intention…Poetry, creating a piece of art with many layers…thus provoking a dialogue within myself and within the audience that delves many levels deeper than the superficial. I am from the school of thought that everything that can be done has been done; it’s my desire as an artist to present my subject in a distinct way, in order to yield an equal if not greater response from the audience, but more importantly from myself, for I am ultimately my toughest critic and though my profession is that of a photographer, it is more than a title, job or career… it’s part of my life as an artist…it is who I am it is what I love.” -- Kareem Quow

**************************************************** Aristotle said “The chief forms of beauty are order and symmetry and definiteness ” and claimed that science proved this wherever you looked. He found great beauty in 'the golden ratio' which is a mathematical formula found all over nature, such as the growing of shells and the human body. ****************************************************

**************************************************** Kant argues that beauty is equivalent neither to utility nor perfection, but is still purposive. Beauty in nature, then, will appear as purposive with respect to our faculty of judgment, but its beauty will have no ascertainable purpose – that is, it is not purposive with respect to determinate cognition. ****************************************************

What Should We Do About Facial Hair?

How many times do we have to shoot an epic project and start the post-processing knowing that there will be a considerable amount of time spent removing facial hair? Is this how it should be, or can it be changed? Facial hair is something every person, man or woman, has. I am not opposed to facial h...

I help Fashion, Modeling + Beauty brands define their Visual Story + sell their product or idea by creating Clean, Cinematic + Conceptual Imagery that get them noticed.

I believe what makes each photographer valued is their “eye” or “vision”…basically an aggregate of what makes anyone unique. The distinct blending and developing of the dynamics that make you think the way you think and perceive the way you perceive. For me it’s how this blend has formed my aesthetic. An aesthetic born from my adoration of creative storytelling, films, music, poetry, my personal interest and technical background in art and architecture, and my outlook on the world curated through travel and life experiences. It’s the attention to detail, the ability to find inspiration anywhere and have that inspiration mature into an entirely new entity. All these factors have, and will continue to influence my personal vision/aesthetic and shape how I approach each project.

I get a great deal of satisfaction creating conceptual images. Primarily because of its intention. Many masterpieces have been created by chance, but to be able to consistently have an idea or vision realized with intention is very fulfilling. To know that the result has been achieved by the culmination of inspiration, creativity, personal vision, concept development, planning, technical acumen, execution and post production is very exciting. I’ve used everything I know and everything I am to create something extraordinary. This allows me to be completely invested in each project I undertake...and this is what I bring to the table.
