Photographer Spotlight (August) - Derrell Carter

Welcome to our Photographer's Spotlight!

Each month, we will be highlighting a Filmet photographer that goes above and beyond to create memorable images for their clients.

This month's photographer is Derrell Carter of the Carter Collection Photography and Design.
Derrell's studio is located in Beaver Falls, PA (about 30 minutes outside of Pittsburgh.) His images are modern and edgy, and his post-production skills are out of this world. Derrell's images have a dream-like blend of photography and graphic design that have launched him to the top of the pack.

Here's what he had to say:

"With over 20 years in the industry I have found that my ability to combine graphic art with photography have propelled me to express my gift in a creative and unique manner. My style is considered to be vibrant and edgy with a touch of urban grunge, and is fueled by high-end fashion photography. God has blessed me to conceptualize an idea into a vision that both my client and I can really love. Photography and graphics in not only my passion, it is my voice."
