About Me

I'm Carolyn Brown, a 25-year-old photographer. I specialize in performing arts photography, publicity photography for nonprofits in tourism and education, and portraiture. I work in New York City and Western Massachusetts, and I am currently studying at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism.

I have photographed more than 170 performances in theatre, music, dance, and opera, as well as countless rehearsals and classes. I have a client portfolio of twenty performing arts and historical performance organizations and four student groups in three states as an in-house or freelance photographer.

My performance photography includes four current or upcoming Broadway and Off-Broadway shows (The Sound Inside, SEARED, The Cake, and Lempicka) before their transfers to New York.

I also photograph galas, parties, and development events for nonprofits.

An avid traveler, I have lived and worked in eleven different cities, all the way from the center of London to the top of a mountain in a Southern California desert. I have traveled to more than seventy cities in five countries and am always looking to visit more.

My work has been published by The New York Times, Vogue, The Boston Globe, Playbill, Broadway.Com, BuzzFeed, Vanity Fair, and many other international, national, and local print and digital news outlets.

I am experienced with retouching, video production, social media management, and graphic design. I'm available for freelance work anywhere in New England.
