I love capturing the Amarillo landscapes, architecture, and people of the city,” says Carter Perky. Born in Denver and raised in Amarillo, this River Road grad first picked up a camera during a high school photography class. “It sparked my interest so I got [my own] camera and never looked back,” he says.
Perky enjoys photographing special moments like weddings and portraits, but his gritty, urban subject matter first landed him on Brick & Elm’s radar. Despite an eye for inanimate detail, people and portraits still drive his talent. “My wife and family are my main inspiration for my creativity, and keep pushing me to get better for my art,” he says.
