Say My Name!

December 20, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

My name? Well, there's a right way and a white way to say it. "Carle" sounds like [car-lee] and that's what everybody calls me but mom always called me Carlitos. Living in Austin, Texas, I work full time for a commercial printing company and full time is an understatement. I am head of sales and marketing for two locations that are one hundred miles apart but in my spare time I am a father of four and passionate about photography.

I got my first instamatic camera when I was 12 years old and I took pictures of everything from rocks to the Pope from 150 yards away. I fell in love with the idea of capturing moments in time but I felt a little disconnected. At 14 I mowed lawns and saved until I bought my very own Pentax K1000, 35mm SLR camera. From then I wanted to photograph people and not just as the family photographer but as a way of meeting people and connecting with the cool kids.

When I started having kids of my own 18 years ago I gave up my small time portrait photographer job so that I could support my family. At the end of 2014 I sold all my 35mm film gear and with that little cash and a small bonus from work, I bought my first digital camera kit on eBay. Since then I have added studio strobes and other portrait gear and I am having a blast. My passion is renewed and these photos are where I'm at right now.
