Justin Carrasquillo (b. 1981) is a photographer based in Los Angeles, California where he currently resides. From 1999 – 2002 he studied commercial photography at the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. From there he embarked on a photo assistant journey that inspired, encouraged, and nurtured his own image making abilities which he still hones on a daily basis. Now staying busy shooting, Justin is continually working on and developing cutting edge techniques for the next great image.
If my images have a mission, it is this: capture beauty and present them in an interesting way. It may be a lonesome Joshua Tree or an Elephant straying away from the herd. Whatever the locale, on the best days these images will stir up unexpected feelings and thought in the viewer and hopefully place them there with me in complete appreciation of the surrounding elements. Two ingredients in my work that stand out are color and light. I shoot when the light is perfect and using my imagination I add and subtract color later in post.
