Hey, I'm Karalyn!

I am a live music and portrait photographer, videographer, and artist based in Syracuse, New York. For the past seven years, I have focused on documenting the music scene and people regardless of genre, race, sexuality, or gender identity. 

Since early 2022, I have worked bicoastal pop rock band Fernway. We’ve been out on tour a few times and I assist with social media, show booking, and other tasks as needed.  

I am the owner of For The Punks, a music/art magazine and resource for fans and creators to connect and grow together. I established this website in August of 2019. 

To contact me, email hello[@]karalynhope.com. I am open to opportunities in the photo/video world along with social media, merchandise and tour management.
