Heart Care and Health Care | Arkansas Advertising Photographer

A world-class, heart care center. In Hot Springs, Arkansas.


Earlier this year, I worked with the BackFocus Productions, EXIT Marketing and National Park Medical Center on their latest television campaign for the Heart and Vascular Center of Central Arkansas.

The Heart and Vascular Center of Central Arkansas is the largest, most comprehensive freestanding cardiac facility in the region, featuring more cath labs than any other heart center in the region. Hot Springs is located an hour's drive from Little Rock so having such an advanced heart facility is important for Hot Springs as well as the surrounding communities. It is the only integrated heart center in the region, combining Outpatient, Inpatient, and critical care in one heart center while also connected to a full service acute care hospital.

Below are a few of the TV spots along with accompanying still images. We spent several days filming and photographing in the new heart center as well as the main hospital. An extra thanks goes to EXIT Marketing for asking us to be a part of this project as well as the staff of NPMC.


Behind the Scenes

Project for Restoration Eye Care | Columbia, MO | Arkansas Commercial Photographer

Back in the fall, I was hired to photograph a series of photos for Restoration Eye Care in Columbia, Missouri. Located at The Forum Medical Park, Restoration is a state of the art clinic that performs Lasik and cataract eye surgery. We spent a full Saturday in the clinic to avoid interruption of patient care during the week.

We photographed a series of portraits of the doctors, patient treatment, patient consultations, and several clinic beauty interiors.

The staff and doctors at Restoration Eye Care were simply wonderful to work for and to work with. They had very clear and specific needs for the photos, but they were also open and very reception to creative ideas and use of dramatic lighting.

After the project was completed, the client was very, very pleased with the images.

"Karen is an abundantly talented photographer who is set apart from others in her field by her professionalism and personable manner.  Her direct, yet affable, demeanor lent itself to an efficient photo shoot, and our results were outstanding.  She is someone who understands the difference between getting the shot that you think you want and getting the shot that you actually need and she puts in the work to make that happen."

Chris Danforth, Director of Marketing and Technology, Restoration Eye Care.

I hope to be able to work with them again in the future.
