Max Morse, Carrie Schechter and Sara Remington - Pros Of The Future
Digital Photo Pro Spotlights Three Emerging Professional Photographers
Carrie Schechter is a New York-based shooter who's already making a splash. Experience as a retoucher and studio manager, plus a style that's flirty and shows a visual sense of humor, have poised her to take off in the business.
Photo Education: Brooks Institute of Photography; The School of Visual Arts
Who was your most inspiring photo instructor? Chuck Place, Bill Robbins, Rob Winner
Why did you find them inspiring? They never stopped pushing me. They believe in me as they do anyone who's serious about photography. They freely give advice—never keeping secrets—teaching from experience. They're my heroes.
What's your favorite photograph not taken by you? I can't pick one. There are just way too many.
What was your first big break? Shooting catalogues and advertisements for Livity Outernational. I was still in school when I got the job, and it was an amazing experience.
What do you want to do with your photography? I want to build an empire. I just want to keep evolving, creating, enjoying, living. My desire and passion for art keep me thirsty for taking more pictures. I love the hustle and bustle of the biz. I love every aspect of it—I want to do it all.
