About Kal Karman

Based in Milan since 2000, though a Bay Area transplant, Kal Karman is an internationally recognized photographer and filmmaker whose work is heavily influenced by his travels and the people he’s met along the way.

After earning film degrees from both UC Berkeley and NYU, he went to work as an assistant cinematographer in LA and managed to gain post production experience at Industrial Light & Magic. His move to Italy came with a new career as an editor, which then evolved into directing and photography. Kal describes his DNA as being built of the dual strands of the post production/special effects and fashion/beauty worlds.

Kal has a pilot’s license and talks to his plants when he waters them. He can rap in French if he’s drunk and thinks fluorescent light should be illegal.
