“If you’re serious about photography, Carolyn, we need to move to New York City”…

And with that, we packed our belongings and drove across the country from San Francisco to Brooklyn back in 2007.

Now, almost 5 years later, I am so excited and proud to announce the launch of my new website carolynclementphotography.com. Over the past several years, I have been given incredible opportunities: From those who hired me without experience; who gave me internships when the competition was so stiff; to my peers who allowed me to fetch coffee and sweep floors for them for the chance to discover new lighting techniques. I thank you all on a professional and personal level for helping me achieve this milestone.

It hasn’t always been easy; I’ve worked my butt off to get to this point. But what I’ve discovered is that the time and effort you put into something eventually rewards you, often when you least expect it.

And so, as excited (and anxious) as I am today to be making my work public, I cannot wait to see where I’ll be in another 5 years…

Though I haven’t posted a single blog entry during the past 2 months, please do not assume that I haven’t been ridiculously busy. I am just days away from launching my brand new website and couldn’t be more excited to share it with you!

In addition to creating my portfolio and website, I am getting ready to be a lead photographer at this year’s first ever Kids Food Festival, being held at Bryant Park on January 21 & 22. The official website describes this event as follows:

“This free event helps in the fight against childhood obesity. Learn about the importance of achieving balance in food choices, through fun activities and sampling family-friendly foods. Get your forks ready for a weekend full of flavorful fun! Appetites of all sizes will be satisfied!”

With plenty of activities for children of all ages, including hands-on cooking classes with celebrity chefs, musical performances, a scavenger hunt and more samples of yummy (healthy) treats than you can shake a stick at, this weekend promises to be an excellent way to learn about balanced nutrition while enjoying the fresh air. Please take the time to visit the festival’s website at KidsFoodFestival.com for more information!
