Alise Carter, or Ay Carter, is a self-taught photographer, retoucher and designer. Her Instagram is full of beautiful self-portraits, make up swatches and unusual experiments with photoshop, cosmetics and fashion. I am delighted that she has agreed to talk to me, to be honest, I’ve been a stalkery Insta admirer for a while now. Beautiful, talented and ambitious, we talk about her inspiration, her career and more.
A typical day in my life depends on what I’ve got planned for the month. I like to stay pretty busy and I’m constantly doing something different or taking on way too much work at once.
My father is the main reason for me starting in photography. He was a great film photographer and advanced to digital with the years. He always had a glorious camera collection and was always tinkering with some new piece of machinery.
