Conversations with Caroline Sharpnack

Today we’d like to introduce you to Caroline Sharpnack. 

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I started photographing around age thirteen when I was given my grandpa’s old Canon film camera. I slowly grew my camera collection throughout high school and spent a lot of time staging photoshoots with friends around town. Naturally, I decided to study photography in college. Towards the end of my time in college, I developed a deeper interest in interiors (I’ve always loved interior design) and I started to think about what it would be like to pursue that niche. After college, I freelanced for companies like Airbnb and Houzz, shooting as many homes as I could (and making connections, too) to build my portfolio. I finally took my photography business full-time in September 2020 after about 6 years of freelancing while working a full-time job. 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Some of my biggest struggles have dealt with confidence – the confidence to take my business full-time, to charge what I believe I’m worth, etc. Being a small business owner has its challenges, but being a creative on top of that adds a whole other layer. I think it all comes down to believing in the work that you do and knowing your worth – if you can do those two things, you can make it through any challenge that comes your way. 

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I’m an Interior Photographer – I work with interior designers, builders, architects, and the like. My style is best described as ‘natural’. I only work with natural light, and I want the space to guide me in how I photograph it. I like to follow the light through a home as the day goes on – nothing is better than catching the sun coming through a window at just the perfect moment. I’m proud of all of my work, but it especially makes me happy when a client is filled with joy and pride over the work we create together because without my clients, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do. 

So, before we go, how can our readers or others connect or collaborate with you? How can they support you?
