About Me

IMPORTANT NOTICE: I keep getting emails from traveling models asking if I would like to book them for a shoot (and pay them of course). I want to make this clear: I DO NOT pay models for shoots unless I have a specific client who wants a certain product and is willing to provide me with a budget to hire models and MUAs. Otherwise, I am the one charging models to do portfolio shoots for them (with the occasional, very rare TF work exceptions). I GET PAID for creating images, that is my business model. Nothing personal against models making a living, just know that I make money the same way and it wouldn't work for me if I pay somebody for images I will not be making money on.

Sept. 21st to 25th - Orlando, FL/Cocoa Beach, FL
Oct 1st to 3rd - New York City, NY
Oct 7th to 9th - Pasco, WA
Oct 15th to 21st - Vienna, Austria/Budapest, Hungary/Prague, CZ

I'm a very experienced photographer based in the Puget Sound area.

Throughout many years I have honed my craft to what it is today, perfecting my lighting technique with much practice.

My photography is about capturing the image for my client, in whatever media and by whatever means. I like to think of myself as a guerrilla photographer: pursuing my assignment relentlessly, improvising when needed, and getting the result by unconventional means when necessary.

I seldom work for trade any more. However, my rates are quite affordable, both to individuals and commercial clients. Every once in a while I will make an exception and work for trade if I find the concept unique and challenging.

My personal website ( is getting redesigned so it is inaccessible at this time. But my email ( is operational. Follow me on Twitter @CarlosCruzTrab and on Instagram @carloscruzphotog.

I'm also a Zivity photographer, so if you are a Zivity model or are interested in becoming one, I'll be more than happy to set a collaboration up so we can both generate content for the website!
