Question   I was referred to your fabulous web site!
Brenda Thompson told me that I absolutely must check out your site, and Im glad she did. Our son is having a special bar mitzvah combined with a nature trip within 100 miles of your studio and my husband or I will contact you soon to see if you can memorialize this event for us. After seeing how you portray the world from refreshing new perspectives, I know you're exactly who we want to keep our memories. I wanted to post this publicly so that others will read it too, but I'll be in touch by email after we settle on the venue and date, plus the location where Josh wants to go for his special photos. Thanks so much! Keep up the phenomenal work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Question   The Stylistics
Hi Miss Tate. A friend of mine on FB, who knows I'm a big soul music fan, saw your Stylistics gallery and send me the link. I recognized Van Fields and Dr. Salaam Love right away (I love the Delfonics too!) and was amazed with the gallery because I never saw this particuler group play together. From your pics though, I can tell that they were awesome and I bet they sounded great! I live in Connecticut but if I knew they were playing in Philly I would of driven down to see them. Are you their photographer? If you are, they sure picked the perfect one! Your pictures make me feel like I'm there even tho I wasn't. Then I went back and played the slideshow while I was listening to Betcha By Golly Wow, and then I REALLY felt like I was there! Your really good!! I had to leave this note even tho I hardly ever do it. :)

Question   Hi from Washington Crossing Awards
Hi Karen. This is Pat, we met today during the awards ceremony. I was watching you photograph the event almost as much as I was watching the kids receive their awards and listening to the alumni speeches, and I was really impressed! The way you worked the room while staying out of the way, and the way you put down your camera and clapped after every speech, really impressed us. A few of us spoke about you during the luncheon afterwards, and I tried coming up to you while you ate with those who invited you to their table, but you seemed engrossed in conversation and I didn't want to bother you. I'm glad I got your card afterwards, and thank you for sharing your beautiful portfolio. You will be hearing from me or my wife very soon. Keep up the outstanding work! Warmly, Patrick

Question   Horseshoe Bend
I love visiting your site because it showcases so many beautiful places and things that either we take for granted or have been photographed to death - and yet you somehow make them unique and your own. I don't know how you do it, but you do it! This is probably the single most beautiful picture I've ever seen of Horseshoe Bend, including my own! I feel like I'm there, looking down, feeling vertigo! This is a masterpiece! It should be in a gallery. If I didn't already have my own pix of it, I'd want to buy it - in a big size! I cant wait to see more of your work, Miss Tate.

Question   Contact Form
There is no confirmation of your receipt on the contact form so I thought perhaps I better try here. Your work is wonderful and I would like to speak with you briefly if you have an opportunity. Thanks for your time,

Question   Your work is just amazing!!!!!!!!!
You won't remember me but you gave me your card when I asked for one, few mos ago when we started talking on the airport shuttle. I thought I lost it but found it today and looked at your site. All I can say is WOW! I've never been to Antelope Slot canyons but you can be sure I'll be going now, after seeing your pics. Sure everyone's seen anttelope pics but somehow yours are different, more appealing and inviting. And Mesa Arch? Wow!! I saw you have an upcoming workshop to Antelope and I'm going to see if I can convince my better half to unshackle me for the trip ;) Hopefully I'll be in touch. Keep up the incredible work!

- Denise Taylor March 18, 2012

  Answer Denise, thank you so much for your lovely comments, and I absolutely do remember you and your family. I hope you're successful at getting yourself unshackled so you can join us! Grin.

Question   Your pics are really great
I just wanted to add myself to your list of admirers. I've seen tons of amazing photos, and yours ranks right up there with them. Theres something different about a lot of yours and I can't quite put my finger on it, but it's very very "good different". I hope to see more. And please update your blog! You keep saying you will! lol (I do read it and learn tons from it. You teach with real words and don't "dummy it down". It's like your talking directly to me and it helps me learn from you better. thank you!

- Howard Rankin March 25, 2011

  Answer Howard, thank you! Your kind words humble me. There are so many wonderful and talented photographers, and I learn something from each and every one, and I never stop trying to learn more. I'm also lucky to have had opportunities to share my own visions and viewpoints. Together, we all (including you and yours) see the world through our own eyes uniquely. We all bring something different to the table, so to speak, and that's a beautiful thing. As for my blog - I consider myself duly and rightfully chastised for being so far behind, and I will do my best to make up for it very, very soon. :) Best, Karen

Question   Your Web Page
Your photographs are truly magazine quality and the web site is equally excellent. I expect that I will see your images one of these days in NG.

- Bill Buckman January 17, 2011

  Answer Bill, I'm truly humbled by your words. I've shown your website to several people, all of whom were awed by your work and talent. So to read what you wrote about my own images... well, I can only graciously say thank you so much. :)

Be well,

Question   Hi from CVS!
Hi Karen. This is Brenda from CVS yesterday, at the pharmacy counter. I just looked at your website and I'm speechless. I thought I knew what a good photograph was until I saw all of yours! You're really really good! Thanks for your cards. I gave one to my daughter and hopefully she'll be in touch soon. Thanks again for your helpful tips! I'll never be as good as you but at least my pics wont stink any more. At least not as bad!

- Brenda Thompson December 22, 2010

  Answer Brenda, great to hear from you and thanks for stopping by! I really appreciate your kindness and I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season! You're very welcome, and I'm always happy to help!

Question   Wow!
Hi Karen. Thanks for accepting my friend request on facebook! I just looked at your website and am awe-struck by how your photos stand out from the herd. Something about them, I don't know what. Most of them look different than anything I've seen. A new perspective, so beautiful. A different way of seeing things. Your website is named perfectly - Through Karens Eyes! I'm a huge fan! I wish I lived close enough to hire you. :(

- Kathy F. December 16, 2010

  Answer Hi Kathy and thanks so much! I'm always touched when my photos seem to affect people, because that's my goal. If I'm not making an impact at least once in a while, then I'm doing something wrong. So, thank you! Happy holidays to you and yours!

Question   You do GREAT work!!
My daughter is taking photography courses in college, and when I requested you as a facebook friend (and thanks for accepting!), I showed her your site and she was wowed, as I was. If we lived near you, believe me, we'd both want you to tutor us! Your refreshing points of view make me see my surroundings differently now, and appreciate them more. Thanks to you, my bank account is a bit lighter - I bought my daughter and me a Nikon D90 to share, and we're already fighting over it because we both only had a point and shoot until now. Thanks, and I'll send you the bill!!

- anonymous anonymous October 31, 2010

  Answer Hi, and I'm so sorry for the delay in responding. I'm actually behind in responding to so many people. Anyway, thank you for taking the time to visit my site, and especially for leaving me such wonderful feedback! You and your daughter chose a terrific camera. I hope that you both use it well, and I hope that you make beautiful images! Happy holidays!

  Answer The restart tuseeqrs never got a response. The rollback request got a response telling me that my location doesn't qualify for a rollback. (._.)Your situation sounds extremely familiar, though. Many times I've been told to do what I've already done ad-nauseum. (>_<)

- Karen Tate  October 05, 2010

  Answer Thomas,Thanks for commenting.I kooled at the prluv home page main call to action button Join For Free Here's my feedback.Whenever you offer an incentive you have to be careful not to sell the incentive in-spite of the offer.The (free Fiverr Gig) incentive is very clear, however, it's at the expense of the reason for joining. The value proposition for joining is missing. The Ready for results? question before the incentive implies results, but it leaves me wondering what types of results? This needs to be answered up front where you have the large rotating splash images. They look good but unfortunately are not telling me anything, they are not giving me a compelling reason to read beyond that. If you deal with the value proposition in that space this would allow you bolster the Call to action button Join For Free with the benefit of joining. Virtually switching the Free call out with the results text. So the CTA button could be stronger if it were Get Results and if Joining FREE is an important differentiator then you can put it before the Fiverr incentive line. But don't forget to work on your value proposition. Let me know if I can help with that.
