About Carrie

RECOGNITIONS: I was recently named among the top multimedia photojournalists in the National Press Photographers Association's international Best of Photojournalism contest for my portfolio of video work (March, 2016). I was also named Ohio Photographer of the Year for my still photography (April, 2016). Since 2013, I've received five Emmys from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences' Ohio Valley Chapter, which covers four states. Whether it's a daily turn or a months-long project, I'm in constant search for the surprising or underexposed. I get special satisfaction in producing pieces on weighty topics, but also like exploring what makes this world bizarre, comical and beautiful. From Hurricane Katrina, the earthquake in Haiti, immigration in Mexico, to my own Midwestern backyard, with every story I do, I learn a little more about our world.
