our story

I have come home at last! This is my real country! I belong here. This is the land I have been looking for all my life, though I never knew it till now...Come further up, come further in!
— C.S. Lewis

Further Up Further In is the direct-to-the-public portrait division of commercial and editorial photographer, Glynis S. A. Carpenter. Glynis makes each session a fun and relaxed experience for you and your kids from which you will receive gallery-worthy photos with a focus on timelessness. Glynis lives in Dutchess County, NY, and shoots in the New York City, the surrounding tri-state area and the Hudson Valley.

A degree in literature with a focus on the medieval might explain the magical quality of Glynis S. A. Carpenter’s work. Her grandmother, Millie Lewis, was a top model in New York in the 1940's and fostered an early love for fashion and photography.

Glynis's commercial clients include Sony, Visa, JC Penney, Miss Me, Orvis, Bloomingdale's, Element, Warner Brothers, Universal, Kobalt, Bose, Vaseline, Smirnoff, Vogue Japan, Vogue Girl, Vogue Mexico, L'Officiel, Violet, Lula, Nylon, Bust, Vice and Complex.
