the people that bring you avant - garde photographer education
NSTRUCTOR / WESTCOTT AMBASSADOR
Joseph “JC” Carey is a lifetime image maker that like many photographers was terrified of lighting until he was gifted with a class in 2007. The class (the only formal one he’s ever taken) was terrible with too much focus on the “recipes” rather than teach HOW to light but that gift changed everything. It lit a fire that has never stopped burning. It transformed him from someone that barely took pictures of people and knew nothing about lighting into someone still trying to figure out how to light everything.
The last 15 years have passed with him being blessed with a daughter, a career doing what he loves, multiple magazine covers, and with meeting amazing people and trying to create great images of them. The art of photography and taking pictures is his passion but the ability to make his vision a reality in a photograph is what truly drives him.
JC has taught all over the US including being part of the Staff at Summit Workshops.
JC is a professional photographer based in New Jersey as well as proudly joining Westcott as their East Coast Sales Manager in 2020 using their gear for the entirety of his lighting lifespan
