Carol Moye

Carol Moye is a semi-pro photographer and a retired public school teacher. During her twenty-four and a half years teaching, she taught several subjects to students in the Pittsburgh Public Schools and City Charter High School. She taught multiple subjects to students from Kindergarten to grade twelve, but most enjoyed teaching photography and digital music at City Charter High School.

Carol studied photography at Hood College, The Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild, Pennsylvania Nature Conservancy and Betterphoto.com.

Throughout 2005, Carol worked with Ervin Dyer, John Butler, Kenneth Neely, Sandra Gould-Ford and Germaine Watkins on a project titled Feel Like Going On. The purpose of this project was to counter the negative way African Americans are portrayed through the eyes of the mainstream media. This project was continued in 2011 through the addition of an online blog through the Post-Gazette Community Voices. She has been both a frequent contributor and poster for this blog.

A mentoring component was added to this project in 2013, titled, Still Feel Like Going On. This is a combined photography and journalism program for fifteen to seventeen-year old African-American males, designed to teach them about the influence of media on how African-American males are perceived, and how they can help to change perceptions with their pens and cameras.

Carol has participated in exhibitions at Sweetwater Center for the Arts in Sewickley, PA from 2006-2010. Her work has also been included in two exhibits with the talented Women of Visions (“Striving”- Heinz History Center 2005 and “In This House”, 930 Liberty Gallery, 2006.)
Although she doesn’t get around as well as she once did, Carol still finds ways to spend time in nature with her camera, nurturing her spirit. Carol also loves shooting live music and dance.
