Artisans on Main
La Veta, CO 81055
Although I have loved photography for many years, it wasn’t until 2013 that I finally decided to display my work publicly. I’m fortunate and thankful to live in an artist community where people are so supportive and encouraging. Aside from photography workshops or photo tours, I try to improve my skills, photographic style and eye through reading, studying the masters, and following my favorite professional photographers on various media outlets. One of La Veta’s own fantastic photographers, Carol Putnam, has helped me a lot over the years and I continue to call on her for advice and guidance. I also try practicing the ABCs of photography - Aways Bring Camera!
Travel is a huge part of my life and I so enjoy going to new places and meeting people of all cultures and backgrounds. As a result, a large part of my portfolio includes travel photographs, mostly landscape but also portrait and street photography. I find it very challenging to do street photography and would love to have more opportunities to improve my skills in that area. I will certainly continue to travel and try to capture the incredible landscapes around me, but I am also going to take my photography in a new direction by turning my lens on more personal projects in the local area.
The Artisans on Main art gallery in La Veta displays some of my framed photographs plus greeting cards and I hope you take an opportunity to shop in this fantastic local business. I also welcome you to visit my website at njcarroll.smugmug.com.
