Carrie Taylor is the Community Engagement Coordinator for Pro Photo Supply, a photo store located in NW Portland. They operate out of a brick and mortar, providing a professional lab for prints, a fully stocked rental department, new & used camera + equipment selection, as well as an event center for hosting lectures, classes, meetings, and more.

Pro Photo Supply assists the community in the pursuit of art, the craft, the profession, and the joy of still and motion photography. They're the real deal when it comes to community support and sponsor many thriving organizations, including Design Week Portland.
