Carmel resides in South Florida with her husband, photographer Robert Brantley. Together, they operate Brantley Photography, a commercial photography studio specializing in architecture and interior design.
Carmel states this about her art, "I am drawn to subject matter that have an intrinsic and often subtle, simple beauty to their being. I find intrigue in allowing the camera to record the complexities of the subject, never certain of what details and secrets might emerge. Classic and rich, sepia toned images reminiscent of an earlier time, have always been a passion of mine. So too are bold, stimulating, contemporary black and white images. I strive for intimacy, seeking to explore, embrace and define that which the camera captures. I am reminded each time I peer through the viewfinder of the magical power the camera possess, and its limitless capacity to engage, surprise and reveal a new perspective on the familiar."?
