Wendy Carrig

Photographer Overview

I am mostly known for photographing people, combining fashion and portraiture with nature and documentary photography.
Over the past three decades I have worked on assignments photographing actors, filmmakers, models, musicians, Olympians, politicians and whole circus troupes, and my work has been widely published on magazine covers and advertising hoardings.
I'm very proud to have exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery, Royal Photographic Society and the Houses of Parliament. I was a participating artist in the #209women project. My work has been selected for the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize, Portrait of Britain and Portrait of Humanity awards, and I am a twice recipient of the AOP GOLD award.
I take huge enjoyment from both completing client assignments as well as creating my own personal work, of which I have many on-going projects. In particular 'The Story of the Grey Dress', and my 'Pop-up Portrait Studio' which now forms part of an annual fundraiser for the RNLI.
Aside from creating photography I have been engaged as a curator and judge on various photographic awards. I thoroughly enjoy mentoring photography students and emerging photographers, and appreciate that mentoring really is a two-way exchange.
I have been an AOP member for many years, and have recently been involved in re-forming f22 - women photographers at the AOP - which aims to address historic inequality within our industry. I call myself a quiet campaigner for women's rights.
I began my career by photographing the women peace protestors at Greenham Common whilst studying for my degree. I am very proud that this work has now been recognised with exhibitions in London and Greenham Common, and an extensive portfolio is currently on show at Kunstnernes Hus, Norway, included in their international exhibition Actions of Art & Solidarity.
