DiQuilio, Carol

Carol DiQuilio explains how she became interested in wildflower photography, "I've always been involved in photography since I was a little kid, borrowing my mother's camera and waiting impatiently at the drug store for my pictures to come in. I would mainly take pictures of our kitty cats and the flowers in the garden. My mother and uncle were great photographers and were very encouraging in my photography endeavors."

After moving to Houston in the 1980s, Carol worked for commercial photo labs for 20 years and learned from some of the best photographers in Houston. During this time, a transition occurred and the digital age of photography began to take over. Carol decided to go back to college for graphic design and gained proficiency in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator . She recalls, "I had a few great jobs in a graphic design in the Houston area, but my most memorable time was being flown to Colorado to photograph prairie dogs for a brochure that I was working on."

Relocating to the Texas Hill Country and eventually purchasing a cabin in Fort Davis in the Davis Mountains of West Texas, Carol discovered numerous opportunities for nature photography. These successes inspired her to market her images, mainly of wildlife. During this time, Carol enrolled in the Texas Master Gardener Program. That experience resulted in an expanded focus and, during a particularly rainy season, she started noticing and photographing all the unique plants flowering in the Davis Mountains. Needing help identifying some of the plants she had photographed, Carol contacted the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and also Sul Ross University. After she learned that not only were a few of those plants pretty rare, but many were not yet represented in the NPIN Image Gallery, Carol decided to help out by donating her images to the Wildflower Center. Carol says, "It's been an exciting journey!"
