Philosophy/Mission: Carli says she loves photography, but that it never trumped her desire to work with dogs, cats, and giant animals that could eat her. She’s worked at the Oregon Zoo, animal rescues, and nature preserves taking care of exotic and native wildlife over the last 16 years. She has also worked with top commercial photographers in NYC and as a photographer for The House of Representatives in Washington. Carli takes photos of her subjects with the intent to capture their personalities and humor.
Claim to Fame/Signature Product or Service: Carli photographs her subjects with the intent to capture their personalities and humor. All species and temperaments welcome.
Community Involvement, Special Notes: Carli has donated services to numerous animal welfare and rescue organizations. Most notably she works with Hopes Haven associate Amanda Guise, photographing animals who are disabled or severely traumatized to help place them in supportive homes. Carli is currently writing a book on pets with disabilities, and on the homeless and their pets.
