Christian CArter-Ross

   A May 2016 graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a Bachelors of Arts in Studio Art, I have an active passion for photography. My most dominant style of photography is documentary. I am a native of Winston Salem, North Carolina. From a tender age, I was attracted to cameras and taking photographs of virtually any and everything I encountered. It was not until a subtle field trip to the zoo that I received a pre-rolled camera and my fascination with photography was fully eradicated.

   Throughout my college career, I observed and took beneficial advice from other photography students, which subsequently aided me in evolving and perfecting my own unique style of photography. Three of my most influential photographers are Dorothea Lange, Vivian Maier and Gordon Parks. Their raw documentary style has always attracted me, and motivated me to imitate and transform their work into my very own. I have been featured in a number of publications, one of the most notable is the San Francisco Chronicle. The vast and diverse background that I experienced while in college sets me apart from your typical photographer, for I think outside the box and challenge the norms of society with each shoot. Instinctively knowing the best place to shoot and utilizing all resources to capture the optimal picture are just a few of my strengths. My work, ranging from vivid fashion photography to thought-provoking documentaries, exemplifies my ability to capture each and every spontaneous moment possible.
