My name is Carol and together with my husband Roger, we are MindWorks Photography. We shoot action, primarily Water and snow ski. At Image Dreams Studios, I'm the hybrid portrait artist to professionals, children, families, pets and [high school] seniors.
"I am an artist, a storyteller and a dreamer. Yours is the story I want to tell. It may be your history, it may be your now, it may be a milestone, or it may be your dream. Whatever it is, that's the story I want to tell, and preserve for you. When I do that it feeds my spirit and inspires me to find more stories to tell."
After 20+ years in a computer tech job, I am enjoying a second and more fulfilling career as a portrait and sports photographer in suburban Milwaukee. Like many of us, I have met with some personal challenges and need to reduce the physical strain from carrying heavy pro cameras and lenses around. Not one to take "no" for an answer, I jumped in with both feet and no safety net. As of April 2012 I have retired my big DSLR's and picked up a couple of small, light mirrorless cameras and now using them on every shoot. So in addition to traditional (beautiful, artistically crafted) print products, watch how our new eproducts evolve, become more numerous, become more varied and fill a need we didn't really know we had.
We are family people. Currently we have 4 furkids (a Yorkie, a Cattle Dog, a Corgi and a black Lab). Between us we raised 5 children who between them have 7.5 children of their own (there's a baby due September 2014).
