"If beauty was only skin-deep, every photograph would reveal the same personality.  We create portraits.  An artistic expression that goes past the outer layer, beyond first impressions, and into the abyss of one's defining essence."     - Carl Caylor

Carl is a down-to-Earth, Portrait photographer and photographic instructor.  He is a Kodak-Alaris Mentor and has been involved with photography for over 25 years. He started his photographic career in the darkroom as a custom printer and technician.  He is PPA Certified, a Master Photographer, a Craftsman with Professional Photographers of America and an International Judge.  He has won numerous national awards for his photography, including 26 PPA Loan Collections and several Kodak Gallery and Fuji Masterpiece Awards.

Carl is the author of the book, “Portraiture Unplugged” a guide to Natural Light Portraits and is one of the most sought after instructors in the country because of his "Hands-On" coaching approach. Don't plan on just watching in his workshop class... Carl will challenge you to become a better photographer than you already are. His photographic skills are just part of what will help each student. His greatest strength is his ability to see what skills others already posses, then break things down in simple terms to help enhance those skills to a new level.

Carl Prides himself on giving a program that contains useful information rather than just a "show and tell" session.  You will be inspired. You will be reminded of things you already know.  Most importantly, you will learn new, useful ideas that will make you a better artist and a more salable photographer.
