Carey Wagner Photography


Carey is a photojournalist and cinematographer based in Brooklyn, NY and accepting new assignments.
After ten action-packed years as a staff photographer at newspapers in California and Florida, she bravely went independent to pursue work about women around the world.
Through her photography and cinematography, she has told stories about gender-based violence in Papua New Guinea, child marriage in Nepal, sex trafficking in Seattle, meth addiction and childbirth in California, street harassment in New York and domestic violence in Florida. Although her work has been received with awards, the conversations that follow are what keep her committed to telling these difficult stories.
Carey has lived and photographed extensively throughout the Caribbean, Latin America, and Asia Pacific. Her clients have included The New York Times, NBC News, Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, CARE, and Sports Illustrated. She was a 2012 Health Fellow for the International Reporting Project to Papua New Guinea and currently is a Nikon School Instructor. Carey is fluent in Spanish, is an underwater photographer, and has lived and volunteered at two of Australia's Northern Territory National Parks. She holds a B.A. in Cognitive Science and minor in Spanish from University of California, Berkeley. She holds a certificate in Centurion Hostile Environments and Emergency First Aid Training (HEFAT).
