photographer from Fremont follows passion with new Lenses and Light studio | Local
“I actually wanted to do it last year, and then COVID came along,” she said. “And thank goodness I didn’t, because that would have been crazy.”
Since 2015, Carlson had been slowly purchasing equipment, including many of his professional lamps in 2017.
“I have my computer and my laptop, my two cameras, my lenses,” she said. “I just got it as a yearly goal because they are expensive.”
Carlson said she walked past Lenses and Light’s future home on H Street and immediately took advantage of the “For Rent” sign outside.
With his photography sessions, Carlson said clients benefit from a pre-shoot consultation before filming begins.
“I work with professional hairstylists and makeup artists, and they have the option with all of my sessions if they wish,” she said. “I also have my client’s wardrobe, and my accessories are also included.”
Lenses and Light’s studio features a walk-in closet and shooting rooms with plants and backdrops.
“And then I have a piece in there that is more of a lifestyle,” she said. “I just got the bed for this for lifestyle shoots, so I’m excited about it.”
In addition to shooting in the studio, Carlson said she also has outdoor locations available for clients.
