Karen Cooper – Director
Northlight Images are a family team and the business is run by Karen.
With 30 years in customer facing organisations and a degree in arts management, Karen joined Northlight Images in 2012, to help move the business forward with the launch of our sister site EFLens.com (which she built from scratch) and a major re-design of our main website.
The majority of the written word on this website is all Karen’s work – she like words!
Karen is a detail person – organised is the word most used to describe her – and spends a good majority of her time making sure life, personal and business, runs smoothly.
If you’ve received a quote, booked a job with us, been sent an invoice, read a newsletter or follow Northlight Images on Twitter, it’ll be Karen you’ve dealt with. You may also have read some of her blog articles about the importance of photography in marketing businesses.
When she met Keith in 2006 she knew nothing about photography, now everyday is a learning experience and she’s evolved into a more than adequate assistant.
She says: “I firmly believe that if I’m going to talk or write about a subject and support Keith and our clients, then I should do my best to learn what I can about the subject.”
While her photography is mainly confined to holiday snaps, sometimes her photos do see the light of day – the photo of Keith above is her work and she’s probably one of the few people who can get him to relax in front of the camera.
Although she’s still on a learning curve technically, Karen has an eye for selecting just the right photo to get the message across and helps Keith chose most of the photos for our portfolios, social media and marketing materials.
