Meet Paul-Michael Carr

Today we’d like to introduce you to Paul-Michael Carr.

Paul-Michael, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I purchased my first camera – a Fujifilm FinePix point and shoot – in order to photograph my studio artwork in college. Shortly after, Los Angeles based dance company Diavolo performed on campus. I was allowed to photograph their rehearsal. I had no idea what I was doing, but by the end of that rehearsal, I knew I wanted to be a photographer.

For the next decade, I created professional opportunities as a photojournalist, live event photographer, product photographer, real estate photographer, and lifestyle photographer. Today, I create images that lift the spirit, engage the heart, and inspire joy.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I am thankful to say no, my road hasn’t always been smooth. The greatest struggle I have faced is remaining authentic in a culture that has often encouraged dishonesty. Our quirks, our authenticity, and our commitment to truth will grow compassion, connection, and empathy between people the planet over. This is the most powerful way – for all of us – to move forward.

We’d love to hear more about what you do.
I am a professional storyteller specializing in photography. My most recent work has been described as powerful, gentle, and magnetic. This is what I am currently most proud of.

There is such an amazing opportunity in our world for vulnerable, honest, and fun commercial work. I tell stories with this level of authenticity. However this speaks to you, please reach out. Everything begins with a conversation, and I am excited to start one with you.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Integrity is most important to my success.
