My name's Karl. I’m an Actor having had the privilege of learning from some of the greatest in the Chicago Theatre Community; I've worked with Chicago’s Goodman Theatre, Off Broadway in New York, the Pasadena Playhouse. I've toured nationally with an Academy Award winner, and worked in an American premiere with an Olivier Award-winning director.
I’m also a photographer who has been shooting since I was a child! I explore a variety of genres (Live performance, event, street, portrait, and more), and I love them all. I derive the most pleasure behind the camera by working with fellow artists to achieve the most honest, enjoyable moments. An experience. A safe and comfortable connection, enabling you to own every element of yourself and your shoot. From micro-expression to body language. From intention to feeling. From idea to story.
My goal is to combine our artistic vision, personalities, and methods to create a fun, unique photography experience.
My name is Karl Maschek, Photographer and Actor. I'm looking forward to working with you!

California School of the Arts Spot
Once a young artist myself, I find so much joy seeing young artists who are doing amazing work! I recently had that experience shooting archival footage for the California School of the Arts San Gabriel Valley production of 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Below is a brief montage I edited using Final Cut Pro X. These young artists down-right OWNED this show!
Lifestyle Shoot Spot
Created with Final Cut Pro X, using footage shot during a very late night lifestyle shoot in downtown Los Angeles.
