MEMBER SPOTLIGHT - CARRIE HANRAHAN
New member Carrie joined CCoH in August of this year. She is a Wisconsin native who now lives in Inman, South Carolina with her husband Tim. They have a daughter that lives in Austin, Texas, and a son who is getting married in June that lives in Buffalo, Wyoming.
Getting to South Carolina has included living in Wisconsin, Missouri, Texas, and California along with many quick stops in between. Carrie has had an interest in photography for as long as she can remember and entered her first contest in high school. "I remember the exact picture. I was trying to win a microwave for my college dorm!"
Her true passion began when working in Glacier National Park the summer after high school. She was stunned by the beauty there and it quickly snowballed into trying to take pictures of everything. Although it was never a career for her, Carrie always had a camera in her hand. "I just always wanted to capture everything that amazed me and it fulfilled me in a way nothing else did."
Now years after working as an x-ray technician, special education instructor, and vineyard manager she has taken the leap into photography as a career. She takes her passion as an adventurer, traveler, and National Park enthusiast along with her wherever she travels. She is lucky enough to get to travel throughout the United States with her husband and photograph many places for both fine art and stock photography.
She has found a niche in stock photography since she has such diverse interests and can supply a wide variety of images for use. Carrie's website is for her fine art photography and she is working on breaking into more sales in that area. Carrie shoots with a Fuji XT-4 camera and a Sony A6000. She processes using Lightroom and ON1 software.
Below are two of her favorite images.
