Karen Sayre, professional photographer – I’m a professional photographer owner-founder of Eikon Photography providing business headshots and corporate event photography throughout the Washington DC, DMV region.  Originally from London, England, I found my way to Washington DC in 2001, following adventures in NYC and Boston.  I trained to become a professional photographer at the New England School of Photography in Boston. My journey into becoming a professional photographer took root in the late 1980s in New York, and this passion eventually led to the establishment of Eikon Photography in the 90s.

I specialize in business headshots and corporate event photography as a professional photographer. This path began with my immersion in the energetic streets of NYC.

 As a professional photographer, I focus on capturing authentic and impactful moments in a wide variety of settings.  Whether I’m documenting significant events, covering news stories, or capturing conferences, photography serves as a powerful medium to convey narratives and action.
In a world saturated with visuals, the role of a professional photographer goes beyond just capturing photographs; you’re part of shaping perspectives and narratives. The power of visual storytelling contributes to a greater understanding of the world around us.
