About Me

Carl Kravats

      I became interested in still photography soon after graduating from The School of Visual Arts in New York City where I majored in Film and also attended its Photography School.  Over 50 years I developed a diverse portfolio of projects, including photographing country fairs, parades and marches in New York City and New England.  I’ve had the pleasure of working with actors, models, sports figures, and entertainers from porn stars to cast members of Saturday Night Live. 

     I’ve created more than 200 book covers for Simon and Schuster, the New York Times Crossword Puzzle series, and murder mysteries from folks like Carter Brown, Earl Stanley Gardner and Dick Frances.  In 2004, after having way too much fun in the Big Apple, I headed west for Southern California where my passion turned to following the Car Culture, travel and food photography. I’ve photographed 8 cookbooks and in between have traveled to Ethiopia, Myanmar, Gujarat, India, Romania and all throughout Mexico. I have visited Kolkata during the Durga Puja Festival and Varanasi at the Dushera and Bharat Milap Festivals.        

 I am forever seeking new subjects, new experiences, ways to be happy, having fun and being creative. If you are interested in more of my work and wish further information, or to make a purchase, please fill in the contact form below.
