Carrie is a local photographer that is known for sharing her vision of nature’s beauty and man’s creations through her images. As an avid photographer and lover of the outdoors, she has recorded the natural world around her for decades. In her day-to-day life, and during her widespread travels and adventures, Carrie has produced an extensive library of images from across America, capturing the spirit of the moment - of the light - of the texture, of the mood. In her portfolio, she showcases the diversity of our land – landscapes from the intimate to the panoramic, delicate Ozarkian flora, majestic images of the West, and abstractions of color and light. In addition to her nature images, one of Carrie's hallmarks is portraying dramatic city scapes and the character of American cities and towns.
Learning photography as a child from her father and growing as a self-taught photographer, Carrie was raised in the Missouri Ozarks and currently lives in a secluded mid-Missouri setting. She continues to combine her enthusiasm as a photographer and lessons learned from her environmental engineering consulting career to communicate a message about each of our roles in living sustainably within our environment. Carrie’s images are presented to inspire each of us to continue to learn and grow in our individual conservation efforts.
Carrie has been recognized in juried competitions. Her images are exhibited locally and she has been published in coffee table books of cities across America, including her recently published book, “Elements of Life – Through the Lens of Carrie Yonley”. Her images make a timeless gift and décor for home or office; they are also used for spiritual and healthcare uses, and for business literature and exhibits. Her collectors also enjoy her fine art greeting card line to share with friends or for their own keepsake.
