Carrie’s Composite Corner

Hi there!

My name is Carrie Ann Grippo-Pike, and I have been a professional and published photographer for over 25 years! I graduated from college with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography, then worked as a full-time staff Newspaper Photojournalist for 14 years. In 1996 I opened my photography business, “Shoot for the Moon Images” in Rochester, New York where I live with my husband Gary!

Upon leaving the news media world, I devoted my time to family photo sessions and weddings. My true passion, though, was photographing nature, wildlife and landscapes. Per the requests of photographers, I started to create digital products from those shoots!

I am honored that I was asked to join the amazing Summerana Academy in 2020 as a content creator. I absolutely love to help fellow photographers achieve their artistic and creative vision with my digital editing products such as backgrounds, overlays and textures!

I hope my wide selection of digital products featuring animals and wildlife, plus unique seasonal, holiday, and movie-inspired images and scenes covers all your composite needs to help bring your imagination to life!
