        "If beauty was only skin-deep, every photograph would reveal the same personality.  We create portraits.  An artistic expression that goes past the outer layer, beyond first impressions, and into the abyss of one's defining essence."     - Carl Caylor

        Carl is a Kodak Mentor and has been involved with photography for over 20 years. He started his photographic career in the darkroom as a custom printer and technician.  He is PPA Certified, a Master Photographer and a Craftsman with Professional Photographers of America.  He has won numerous national awards for his photography, including 17 PPA Loan Collections and several Kodak Gallery and Fuji Masterpiece Awards.  Having begun his teaching career in 1996, Carl has gained national credibility and is now a favorite instructor at photographic seminars and schools world wide.

        Carl prides himself on giving a program that contains useful information rather than just a "show and tell" session.  You will be inspired. You will be reminded of things you already know.  Most importantly, you will learn new, useful ideas that will make you a better artist and a more salable photographer.
