Carson's experience throughout the few years he has done it consist of a lot of learning throughout from trial and error as well as the constant hours of dedication to video services such as Udemy, YouTube, and Skillshare to constantly be learning. He is driven and staying up to date with his knowledge to be ahead of the game and to inspire the customers that he teaches at Best Buy where he works part-time.
What I love most about my job is bringing anyone's vision to life, whether that is my own or my clients. Growing up, I would always make sketches to bring my creative thoughts to life and I always wanted to help those who weren't confident to create. I believe I have a sense of rhythm and it coincides with every piece of work that I do, especially with video; as that is my strong suit and my biggest passion of all. Showing off my creativity with beautiful imagery is what gets me out of bed every day. I love that my job I can practice every day even if that means with just random photos on snap chat. Everything is art to me and I couldn't imagine seeing it any other way.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many real estate shots and portraits. I make real estate photos special by really diving into the composition side of it and getting great shadows, symmetry, leading lines, foreshadowing, etc. With the portraits side of things, I make those special by directing the model to feel better about themselves and come up with angles that most wouldn't think of (Thank you 100mm MACRO <3).
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
The only recognition I have really had was the Columbia Instagram page asking to repost my zoo picture of an otter that told a great story. As well I've had a skateboarding company promote a link to my latest documentary type interview. I'm sure those are just a start of what's to come, but awards are what I shoot for. It's just getting my vision out there and showing people that they can too all while trying to be as original as possible.
A fun fact about this photographer
I'm actually a unicyclist and broke it about two weeks ago and having withdrawals. Hire me so I can get a replacement haha I don't think anyone understands how much those things are, especially the off-road mountain ones. Oooo I'm just excited thinking about hopping back on one. It's a discipline and a load of fun. (P.S. I'm working on operating a Glidecam while doing it... stay tuned.)
