It’s one of the classic arts that requires both creative vision and technical skill. A photographer is as much an artist as he is a scientist. 


How does light play with a subject, or not?  What is part of a composition inside a frame, or not? What story is being boldly told, or not? What emotions or derived from a picture, or not? 


These and a myriad of other questions make up the artistic algorithm that every master photographer calculates within milliseconds while conducting a photoshoot. 


That’s why entities such as Los Angeles #1 Black Radio Station KJLH, the Black Design Collective, The WACO Theater and celebrities such as Janet Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Janelle Monae, Shaun Robinson and Vanessa Bell Calloway trust the photographic vision of Karim Saafir.


Some moments are meant to last forever. The spirit of that moment, held captive in deep, moody black and white or crisp vibrant colors, is what keeps a photograph living on throughout time.


With the onset of digital photography, nearly two decades ago, anyone with a cellphone can call himself a photographer but not everyone with a camera can call himself a master of his/her craft.


It takes a true master of his craft to capture the “unspoken” nuptials and elegance of a bride as she transitions into royalty on her special day. The glamour of a riveting model as she struts down a runway.  The gritty, earthy, candid shot of an artist rocking out in front of thousands of spectators. The grip of a newborn’s tiny hands clutching the finger of a parent. The history of a family’s generations captured in a single image. Or the power of a corporate photograph that sells customers a single virtue, trust.  These are all real moments that stir the spirit and moves the soul.


Karim Saafir has as his central “focus” a single objective with each and every client and that is to leave them with images that are larger than life.


It’s all about, “Capturing Life Beyond the Moment…”
