Brief Summary
Carrie Schechter's free spirited nature has led her on many adventures with her camera in hand. As someone who pushes boundaries in both life and art, she has pushed the concept of photography to a level of hyperrealism. Her work expresses a fusion of seduction and innocence and has been described as beautiful, textural, and haunting. Carrie creates a dynamic environment when she shoots encouraging everyone to check their inhibitions and hang-ups at the door.

Carrie studied at Brooks Institute of Photography where she received a department award for her cutting edge still photography. Previously educated in fine art at the School of Visual Arts, she learned the importance of using light for modeling and developing the complex moods that reside in her work. Her fine arts background explains the painterly and sculptural sense of light that is evident in her photographs.

Carrie's work has appeared in advertising campaigns and magazine editorials. She has won multiple awards leading her photography to be nationally and internationally recognized and featured in cities such as Dubai, Hong Kong, London, Paris, Barcelona, Los Angeles and New York.
