Born and raised in Los Angeles, Carl Studna is a multifaceted photographer whose three decades of commercial shooting covers the spectrum of music photography, author portraits, corporate and advertising photography, celebrity portraits, and fine art. Studna's intimate portraits of influential people are known worldwide and have graced publications ranging from Time Magazine to Rolling Stone. What makes Carl's portraits distinct is the level of soulful presence that projects through the subject's eyes or through the sensitive artistry in the composition. Carl's career for the past two decades shooting for CD's, book covers and magazines takes him around the world photographing such musicians and luminaries as Paul McCartney, George Harrison, James Brown, Genesis, Eric Clapton, the Dalai Lama, Timothy Leary and Buckminster Fuller. A passionate storyteller, Studna's illustrious history with rock icons has been shared via radio interviews, college lectures and art galleries across the country. Carl's most memorable professional assignments have involved shooting and spending time with these individuals that served as inspiring figures while growing up. Being greeted by His Holiness the Dalai Lama with his beaming childlike smile. Delighted by James Brown's bag of eccentricities while spending a day photographing his album cover, "Universal James" while decoding every other word he spoke. Communing with Eldridge Cleaver at Carl's home studio while Cleaver shared his life's sorrows and victories. Having tea and discussing the benefits of meditation with George Harrison and his wife Olivia in their hotel suite in downtown Osaka while shooting Harrison's three week concert tour for his CD, "Live in Japan." Currently residing in the pristine mountains of Colorado with his wife Cynthia and their two dogs, Carl views the world as his home and enjoys traveling the globe in offering his photographic talent and gifts.
