Master Photographer, Karen Nakamura, is widely acclaimed for her signature style images of flowers. She is gifted with a unique take on them that evolves with each new blossom she shoots. Some of her inspiration and creativity comes from an adoration of orchids, which she tended to as a hobby.

Karen has earned the Professional Photographers of America’s Photographer of the Year award every year since she first entered International Photographic Competition back in 2010. Professional Photographers of America honored Karen with its 2013 Diamond Photographer of the Year and 2014 Master Artist Diamond Photographer of the Year. Diamond Photographers of the Year had all four competition images accepted into the prestigious PPA Loan Collection. Karen has also won the coveted Canon Par Excellence Award, representing the pinnacle of achievement at the Professional Photographers of America regional level. She is one of the first photographers to earn the California Masters Award.
