About Carrie Meyer
Carrie Meyer, the owner of The Dancers Eye Fine Bellydance Photography & Insomniac Studios, has had an interest in cameras and photography from a young age, when her parents first allowed her to experiment with several of their cameras. She fondly remembers her first Kodak Instamatic, and the variety of fun shots she was able to capture with it. She began to pursue her photography professionally in 2006, and in 2010, she opened her studios - The Dancers Eye, which focuses on bellydance portraiture and live bellydance performance photography, and Insomniac Studios, which offers portraiture and live performance photography as well. Her dance and theater background, and her love of music and the arts, has inspired and informed much of her performance photography. She has photographed many local, regional, national and international dancers, fire performers, and musicians. Regardless of the photographic subject matter, Carrie’s work shares certain commonalities. The thoughtful composition, clarity of images represented, and the meaning of the moments in time that she captures, all characterize her work. Her work builds out from the foundation, strength and power of the basic images, and captures the personality of her subjects. In her work for The Dancers Eye, she has married her love of bellydance with her love of photography. Carrie offers her dancer subjects a unique opportunity to work with an artist who truly understands the dance, and how dancers want themselves to be portrayed.
