We had the good fortune of connecting with Ed Carreon and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ed, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would go camping in the Black Rock Desert and eat, drink, smoke cigars (maybe mushrooms), drive on four-wheel drive trails and hike all day long. I would make the food we ate and drink beer on a hard to get to mountain top and watch the sun setting on the wild horses and antelope.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Yes, and that would be Anthony Nex and the APA. Anthony, a previous president of APA and one of the most successful commercial photographers in Los Angeles has shared his expertise and knowledge resources with me on many occasions when I needed answers on pricing, studio sourcing, models and lighting. There haven been many other photographers whom I have met at the APA that have been helpful as well. So I would say that Anthony and the APA have been one of my silver bullets in my arsenal of factors that have contributed to my success. I am so grateful to those photographers that have shared knowledge with me.
