Carl Valle has been making photographs since the age of six and published work in the school newspaper. He worked as a materials comptroller at a nuclear plant and an analyst for a major electric company before retiring. He has traveled all over the globe in the last 30 years and photographed all seven continents, over 45 countries, always with at least one camera in tow. He searches for at least one memorable image from each voyage.
His interest in photography has always been on the total system approach, understanding every part of photography from camera to film to process and then to the final print.
Carl still works as a photographer, shooting portraiture and photographing artwork for artist clients. He has exhibited travel photography at Art St. Louis, MySLART, and The Saint Louis Artists Guild and has photographed for the Mercedes Benz Club of America, and the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra.
