About Karen Lippowiths & The Focused Photographer



Thanks for stopping by!

I'm an award-winning children's portrait artist.  I'm self-taught and self-invented. Through years of diligent hard work, I rose to become one of the most sought-after photographers in metro Detroit. Now, I'm consistently booked well in advance and average $2-6K per session in sales.

Just like you, I dared to dream "what if?" and felt a spark of inspiration.   Of course, success requires more than inspiration.   Success requires solid information and loads of motivation to create a profitable, sustainable business doing what you love so that you still love doing it.  

I began working as a photographer in 2006 after studying at the University of Michigan and the Sorbonne in Paris and working in international business and design.   After living in New York and abroad for several years, I returned home to metro Detroit at age 29.   It was the perfect time to ask myself, "What do I really want to do with my life?"   A few months later, I was in business and on my way.  You'll learn more about my personal story and struggles in the kit.

I couple my love for photography with a passion for business.   When I started out, I was constantly searching for a resource to help me and my business grow.  It was a lonesome and difficult road.  It took years of practice, constant trial and error, and a few hard knocks to create what is now a very profitable and sustainable business.  Out of that experience, I created the Focused Photographer Business Builder Kit for anyone just starting up or starting over.

This is a tough business and these are tough times.  Without the right tools and information, success is difficult to achieve.  The kit takes a "fluff-free, insider-advice" approach offering the critical information needed to transform yourself into the business and creative genius that you already are.

I priced the kit so it would be both ACCESSIBLE and AFFORDABLE to anyone seeking help.  I'm confident that a rising tide will lift all boats.  I wish you the best in achieving your dreams.
