Carl Cox | Professional Assignment & Portrait Photographer

Carl Cox is an award-winning photographer based in the Washington, D.C. , Maryland, and Virginia region, but is often sought nationwide for assignments as diverse as executive portraits for A-list personalities, annual reports, global corporations, coverage of conferences and conventions for national trade associations, architectural photos at historic national landmarks, and  weddings for some of the nation’s most discerning families. Carl is equally at ease serving both business and personal photographic needs. He brings a wealth of experience to any assignment, no matter how small or large, and blends that experience with creative and personal style available nowhere else.

Carl’s abilities are reflected by the individuals and organizations who have called on him to fulfill their needs. Executive portrait clients have included Margaret Thatcher, Donald Trump, Colin Powell, Rudy Giuliani and Newt Gingrich. The American Bankers Association, the National Retail Federation, the American Advertising Association, the Boy Scouts of America and the U.S. Holocaust Museum have sought him out for coverage of conferences and events with speakers as varied as President Obama, House Speaker John Boehner, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Nobel Laureate Eli Wiesel, Meet the Press host David Gregory and jazz great Charlie Byrd. Buildings photographed for architects and construction companies have included the U.S. Capitol and the National Archives.
