Carter Schneider

Honolulu, HI -> New York, New York


Carter Schneider is an editorial and freelance photographer, that specializes in event and editorial photography in New York, New York. 

Born in Spain and raised in Oahu, Carter Schneider is a Korean, Native American, German, and Spanish trans-masculine person (they/them). Schneider has given presentations on gender identity at UC Berkeley and UH Manoa. Schneider's own queer identity shapes their art and is documented through their photography. Schneider is attending Parsons for a BFA in Photography and Eugene Lang for a BA in Social Change through Media and the Arts.



My work focuses on people/portraiture and capturing all types of people. Growing up in Hawaii, multicultural identity has shaped my entire life and it is through embracing diversity that I document the photographs that I do. 

I shoot for BOUND, a fetish and kink wear party that aims to create a space where femmes and queer people can engage comfortably in bdsm. See photos I took here:
