carly// portraits with nyc photographer

Some people just have a luminance to them, and nyc photographer carly is no exception

We met Carly many moons ago at Josh Wool’s Light Theory workshop in New York. Tim and I decided to get down to brass tacks and be serious about our photography education.  We forked over money we didn’t really have, hopped on flights to Brooklyn, and spent an intensive weekend learning from one of the best in the game.   The people we met that weekend are still our friends.  Scattered around the country, digging deep into their own particular styles and visions of the world, making us proud.

Carly the babe is still in NYC.  I got the chance to run around Chinatown and MoMA with her last week while I was in town. Luckily some people are just as good of models as they are of photographers.


Carly, in the good city light.

Ugh. Instagram captions. What the hell?

I've spent countless moments of my life staring at a blank instagram caption box. Try something - delete it. Put a quote in there - delete it. But I had a secret weapon... I'd just hand the phone to my wife. She's is a witty and wise firestorm of a woman and I love her for it. Apparently, so does instagram. Her irreverent, meandering, and poignant-as-hell captions have created a sense of community in our lives so that everywhere we travel, there’s usually someone willing to show us around (not to mention insta alone has literally put thousands of dollars in our bank account). So I made her sit down and explain what goes through her curly little head whenever her thumbs click away at her phone keyboard. Put your email below for her free guide on how to write insta captions that people actually care about and make the whole process (dare we say it) fun.. -Tim
