Hey I'm Carlos, I appreciate your curiosity and interest in getting to know me a little better.
I make my home in a Midwood Brooklyn neighborhood, though I also call the islands of Trinidad & Tobago my other home. That's where I was born.
I photograph semi-professionally right now, which simply means that I don't make a living entirely through my photography. I don't necessarily have plans to change that any time soon either - in case you're wondering. I just happen to have another passion that I'm able to sustain a living with. We can talk about that more if you decide to reach out and you're curious.
I'd describe my photographic vision as journalistic, vivid, and minimalistic. When I shoot events, I like to capture raw expression. When I edit and shoot personal projects I like to make color vivid and punchy, and more often than not, I keep a minimalist composition.
I'm lucky enough to have a platform to serve local New Yorkers' needs of a creative eye and service with a great attitude. I'm happy to listen to what needs you have for your event, project, or portrait taking.
So feel free to connect with me here or on any of my homes on the web if you want to discuss working together.
Years Shooting Professionally
"My fiance (now husband) and I worked with Carlos over a year ago for an engagement shoot in Brooklyn (specifically DUMBO and the promenade). To be honest, we were nervous because we're both a little shy, nerdy, and goofy and probably not the most comfortable people in front of a camera. But if you are going to have an engagement shoot, get ready to feel cheesy no matter who the photographer is. Just a heads up, you're going to have to look like you're in love! But Carlos was really great to work with. He had a lot of ideas and everything was very organic. He does spend time to chat with you, get to know you a little so the experience is definitely less awkward then it has to be. And our comfort and his abilities really shine through in the photos. Our favorite photos ended up being the ones when he just captured an odd, quirky moment, when we're laughing or making stupid faces at each other. Yes, the lovey-dovey ones were beautiful too. We are a couple of average attractiveness and he made us look good! " Lily, 2011-
My husband and I bought the maternity-newborn package from Carlos and it included two maternity sessions and a newborn session for our twins. I can't recommend him highly enough -- the shoots were fun and relaxed, and Carlos was incredibly prepared for everything...and the pictures? The pictures were so beautiful we couldn't figure out which ones to frame! He has an incredible eye for the right light, the right pose, and the right props to make photography beautiful. He truly brought out the best in each of us. Thank you, Carlos!-
