Carol discovered photography six years ago, and found a passion that has surprised and delighted her. Although she has always been a storyteller, now with her photos she can say more than words alone. Through the creative use of media, Carol helps her clients more effectively communicate their organization's vision, build community, as well as educate and persuade audiences.
Photography not only helps her see and capture the beauty in the world and people, but it continually challenges her to learn and grow. If you are interested in seeing more of Carol's photos please go to www.carolvipperman.smugmug.com. I hope you enjoy her view of the world.
"I have been using Carol's original photography as part of my interior design business with great success! The quality of the photographs reproduce into beautiful pieces of art either on canvas or framed. Her style of photography appeals to many different tastes, and has become a staple in my art offerings to clients. Her photography is showcased in the homes of my twenty-something clients, as well as my eighty-something clients and all ages in between. I love her photographer's eye and the way she is able to capture original beauty and color in the most unexpected places. Carol's travels have expanded her repertoire of amazing pictures, but her take on Seattle's hidden beauty is truly exceptional. Every home should showcase a Carol Vipperman original!"
"I’ve worked with Carol for the past two years in her capacity as a photographer. At the Association for Women in Communications, we understand the need for strong visuals to augment our website and other digital communications. Carol has shot several of our events and we have used her images to share the look and feel of AWC Seattle with a larger audience to encourage them to explore the organization themselves. Carol is friendly and professional, and wields her camera intelligently and with grace. We look forward to working with her again!"
Dana Van Nest, President, Association of Women Communicators
"Carol is more than a photographer. She's a story-teller. Carol doesn't just make videos. She creates a narrative. Using images and language, Carol's video helped me show viewers that they live in great communities where they can discover art and parks and people at work, honing their craft. You'll love working with Carol. She listens. She knows how to translate what you want into a product that does what you need it to do. She has an intuitive sense of how the video must flow. I've known and worked with Carol for more than 20 years and that's why, all these years later, I trust her to get the job done right."
"When we needed a professional to do photo and video work for our newest publication, The Extraordinary Teams Inventory, we called Carol. And what a wonderful job she did! Her experience resulted in three of us coming across clearly, direct, animated, and engaged. On the videos, it even appears we are having a good time! Why? Because Carol called out our more natural selves. We lacked camera experience and she helped us get past that. She paid attention to what we were trying to accomplish and helped us get our story on tape in a way that will attract viewers."
Geoff Bellman, Consultant and Author
"Carol has an eye for visual storytelling with her photo's and now with video. She understands how to create images that have power and impact. Recently she helped me create an instructional video for my university students. I'm looking forward to working with her again."
"Two of my colleagues and I engaged Carol as a videographer to help us tell a new story about our collaboration. We’ve proudly placed her three video segments on our refreshed website. She truly brought out the best in each of us and the three of us together—in how she coached and critiqued us during the taping and in her smart, targeted editing. The results? Our rather complicated content is conveyed quickly and concretely—and we look like we know what we are talking about! I highly recommend her services."
"Carol helped me and two colleagues make a promotional video for a training and development product, as well as photographs for our website. Her advice through out the process was invaluable! Plus, she’s so much more than the typical video person. Having had a long and varied business career, she gets what’s needed by potential users of the video. She helped us clarify and hone the script. We did multiple takes, tightening up the video and making it more professional and interesting, while retaining a casual tone, and then she edited the various clips she took into a great video that was immediately ready to post to You Tube, LinkedIn, and our own websites. She was very timely with her production work after shooting the video. We never could have (nor would have) done this without her! Thank you Carol!"
