From Our Editors
Since she bought her first Nikon at the age of 15, Carla Phillips' love affair with photography has taken some twists and turns. Along the way she's been a fashion stylist and a publicist, studied documentary and digital photography at the International Center of Photography, and shot a variety of star-studded events. This varied background informs Carla's style, which is a minimalistic one. During portrait sessions, she captures candid smiles and laughter and even her more posed shots are strategically taken to reflect her subjects' true nature. Carla particularly likes to shoot outdoors, taking advantage of natural light, which can emphasize crisp colors and eliminate vampire photobombers.
