Keren Dobia APP M.Photog. II
Keren is the photographer and creative director of the theatrical compositions. She designs, creates and sources both costumes and sets. Under her careful direction, and with the help of a small army of dedicated makeup artists, hairstylists, models and assistants, her mystical dreamscapes are awoken. Her passion for the visual arts is what has driven her to create much of her dramatic and emotive imagery. Her background in painting and drawing has allowed her to blur the line between photography and illustration. Keren’s passion for her craft and utter enthusiasm when creating the “perfect” image inspires and excites everyone around her.
Recently, Keren’s style has been recognised and sought after by numerous burlesque, circus and theatre performers.
Her friendly, vibrant personality has attracted various clients within the public care sector. Particularly Yooralla and Annecto.
Keren is a graduate of NMIT Diploma of Photoimaging and now lectures at Melbourne Polytechnic and RMIT. She has previously exhibited her work in a variety of different galleries. She has also been the recipient of various awards and accolades, most recently named the 2017 AIPP Australian Professional Photographer of the Year.

“My father dedicated his working life to the Australian film industry. This image was photographed and designed by the visionary Keren Dobia. The photograph – so beautifully lit and captured – it really pays homage to his life’s work. It makes me feel very proud that it won a gold distinction at the 2017 AIPP awards.” – Thomas
“Being with Keren was a game changer for me. I learnt more in one, one on one session with Keren than I’ve learnt in any other way. Keren found ways to teach me exactly what I didn’t even know I wanted to know. She taught me how to use the tools to enable techniques I thought were beyond me.” – Lisa
“I am in awe of Keren’s talent, if there is anything that she doesn’t know about the creative use of Photoshop, I am yet to discover it. She has all the characteristics of a good teacher: in-depth knowledge of her subject, the ability to inspire and encourage, and great reserves of patience.” – Allison
