My name is Karaminder and I’m a professional headshot and portrait photographer. I apprenticed in Los Angeles and New York for my craft. I'm a mentor and associate at the Headshot Crew where I share my knowledge with other professional photographers around the world. I've worked with large and small companies like Disney, British Airways, Mashable, Humanscale, PepsiCo, Verizon, LucasFilm, KKR, and Flixel. I have shared my story of how I got started on CreativeLive. You may also recognize me from such viral youtube hits as; Accentuating Your Jawline to Help You Look More Photogenic in Photos and How Squinching Can Convey Confidence to Camera.

I love to share my craft with students and other professional photographers. I'm a Leica Akademie instructor for Leica Camera USA, and will be teaching in Los Angeles, Seattle, Miami and Boston in the first half of 2017.

You can find me keeping at the bleeding edge of the photography world. I'm a member and present at all major photography tradeshows like WPPI in Las Vegas, and PhotoPlus Expo in New York.
