My name is Carroll, and I take photographs.
I never had a formal education in photography – I picked up a camera one day and started taking photographs. I’ve dabbled in photojournalism, potraiture, street photography, and other types. But I’ve always approached photography from a very personal place, and as a result, my style is a bit more personal, too.
Currently, I’m working on a project with 35mm slides and negatives taken by my father in the seventies and eighties. Not quite a personal project, but a project that I’m working on because I’m interested in understanding my father as a photographer, too.
I guess my passion for this project stems from my desire to understand more about the medium, while also trying my hand at culling and editing photographs that I didn’t necessarily take – seeing how it feels to be an editor for another photographer’s work instead of my own. And, I’ve always been pretty keen on trying new things and experimenting, so that probably helps a lot, too.
I’m also keeping busy looking for a subject for a longer portrait series. But something like that requires the right person and a connection.
Professionally, I still photograph the occasional wedding or other odd portrait commission – usually for people who like my style and want that kind of look.
In the past I’ve had my work exhibited and I’ve completed some projects that I’m particularly proud of. But less than accomplishments, I think of these as milestones. Something you pass, but not something to stop the momentum or energy. Gotta keep going. Gotta keep taking photographs.
Right now, I’d love to work with more fashion bloggers, more aspiring models, and folks who just want to be photographed. It seems harder to do this at times, especially in New York, where agendas rarely line up. But, I’m always here, and I’m always down to take a photo or take on a new project.
