Digital Photographic Artist, Karen Alsop, composites photographs of animals together with humans to create life-like story book imagery.
By photographing the animals specifically for her composites, she is able to merge them together in photoshop with her costumed human models to bring the imagination to life.

‘Worst Nightmare’ is a twist on the classic fairytale, Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Karen photographed the human subjects on location in a fairytale cottage. The bear like dogs and the cat were photographed in Karen’s studio.
‘Wanted on Voyage’ was photographed on the platform of a steam railway in Australia (Puffing Billy). The Station Master posed for Karen on location. ‘Paddington Bear’ was later photographed in Karen’s Studio. Karen had her daughter pose for the scene, dressed as Paddington Bear. Karen used one of her photos of the bear like dog and manipulated the snout to give a more bear like appearance.
Karen also likes to feature animals undertaking ‘human’ activities.
In addition to featuring animals, Karen creates whimsical fine art, story book composites featuring children as characters.
