“Walking the path of most resistance” is the mantra, self taught, dedicated and brilliant photographer, Carey Bradshaw, applies to his artistic creations. He is constantly pushing the boundaries of traditional photography and infusing it with digital photo manipulation.
Born and raised in Kingston Jamaica, Carey’s initial exposure to art came by way of “who could draw better” competitions that were waged in the back of his 6th grade classroom. Most of these mortal-combat styled battles resulted in either a loss or several hours in detention, but these adversities fueled his desire to become a better artist. At the age of 15, Carey’s mother decided to migrate to New York so that she could provide a better life for him. Rather than spending his teenage years running the streets of New York, he immersed himself in his brand new Commodore Amiga 500 computer, learning everything from basic programming to deluxe paint (an early competitor to Photoshop).
As Carey matured, art took a backseat to REAL LIFE for several years. It wasn’t until July of 2008 that he borrowed a friend’s DSLR camera to go on vacation and instantly fell in love. Carey came back from that vacation with a new direction and focus. He purchased his first camera shortly after and spent countless hours reading and learning about the art of photography. With this renewed passion towards unleashing his creativity through the arts, Carey sought professional development through the acquisition of an Associates Degree in Graphic Design from the Briarcliff College, NY in 2012.
Armed with both his photography experience and his graphic design knowledge, he has been busy creating stunning masterpieces for Kat Deluna and Dance Theater of Harlem. In addition, he has collaborated with artistes such as John Singleton, Laz Alonzo and Anthony Mackie to name a few, in retouching images to the client’s perfection. His other accomplishments include his on-going YouTube video series – ‘I Shoot People’ that explores captivating storylines through photography.
