About the Artist:
Carol Richardson Marty is a Seattle-based photographer specializing in culinary, nature, and architectural photography.
Carol’s approach is a combination of creativity, simplicity, and patience. Always looking at a setting from many different angles, Carol strives to find the most unique and beautiful, yet simplistic picture possible. Carol does minimal post-processing, as she feels the picture is what she sees at that specific moment in time.
Carol was born and raised in Tallahassee, Florida. Being the child of a fantastic Southern baker and cook (Mom is from South Georgia), Carol began baking at a young age. That love for baking and all things sweet has since grown into an award winning cake decorating business, Carol’s Creative Confections, for which she still does a variety of delicious treats.
Carol has always had a camera in hand, and one day while photographing a cake, she realized that she enjoyed the photography even more than the cake!
The Florida beaches near her home are famous for the sand being extremely fine, a beautiful white color and easily slipping through your fingers. This is why it is often referred to as “sugar sand”. Sugar Sand Photography was born as a combination of Carol’s homage to her hometown and roots, her specialization in culinary photography, and her terrible sweet tooth!
