Hello, my name is Sarah Koury – I started my career in photography after completing my BA in Fine Arts in my native Canada. I quickly fell in love with festivals which became my first, and continued line of work.
I moved to Bristol, UK in 2014 and have since established my career in live music as one of the country’s top photographers. I continue to work with many artists, labels, brands and festivals worldwide – some of my clients include Live Nation, Festival Republic, Red Bull, Hospital Records, and Vevolution.
I am one of the founding members of a small company called KōLAB Studios – and what started as a photography collective, is quickly branching out into a small creative agency wherein we undertake brand management for several artists & labels.
My continued work with electronic music duo KOAN Sound has evolved into a Creative Director role as my responsibilities include brand & campaign management and marketing in addition to photography and film. The primary example of this is deliverance & management of the ‘Polychrome’ campaign which included album artwork, promotion and live tour.
Music culture is a big passion of mine, which drives me to an unrelenting pursuit of documentarian-style shooting for all things related to it. Equally, I love to work with people in my studio wherein I specialize in highly-creative portraiture and lifestyle photography. I am constantly inspired by light, colour, negative space and atmosphere, all of which fundamentally drive my style. Using this, together with my combined curiosity for life and enthusiasm for what I do, I strive to create something unique and innovative – every time.
So please, get in touch and let’s see what we can create together x
