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. He enjoys sharing what he has learned so far in his journey. Carl’s greatest strength in our industry is his ability to see what skills others already possess and how to break down concepts on a personal level to help advance those skills further. Carl is happiest when he can help other artists succeed and witness growth in the footsteps of our industry.
