Meet the Principal Team at Panospin Studios

Carlton SooHoo
Founder & Principal Photographer

In another life before photography, Carlton has been a Life Coach specializing in career change and new business start up; worked in technical sales selling scientific instruments and chemicals; and used his Ph.D. as a Research Scientist to work at a few biotech companies in Massachusetts.

In his downtime, Carlton…

  • is an avid and competitive tennis player (and spectator)
  • is a cyclist with cool threads and a killer bike
  • loves live theater performances
  • is a nomad at heart traveling off on numerous adventures near and far every year
  • loves everything food
  • is learning to play the djembe
  • has almost mastered the Carlton dance

Carlton is also an adventurer, explorer, foodie, philanthropist, nerd, social artist, and an extraverted introvert. While he has excellent skills in photography, he is also able to juggle 3 tennis balls, parallel park on the LEFT side, can assemble Ikea furniture without breaking a sweat, and owes his career in photography to the philosophy that you should always follow your passion.

Dale Robertson
Business Development Manager & Principal Photographer

Dale’s 20 plus years in the black and white bits and bytes world of IT left him wondering what a truly “creative” entrepreneurial job would be like. After reviewing one of the bullet points on his resume’s “Objective” statement — “History of implementing strategic initiatives that improve business functionality and provide positive impact to the bottom line“, he knew that it was time for a change.

The opportunity to join Panospin Studios came just in time, was a a perfect fit from every angle, and an obvious choice for satisfying his deeply ingrained entrepreneurial spirit!

  • a nature lover
  • an adventure seeker
  • a foodie
  • active and athletic
  • a Cross-fitter
  • a skier
  • a runner
  • an ice hockey player

Or to sum it up… Dale is an outdoor activity aficionado!

Lindsey Raske
Account Manager & Principal Photographer

While not on location, Lindsey coordinates all photographers, across the United States, for photoshoots with our clients, reviews the photos, and starts the process for production, making a smooth transaction from start to finish.

Lindsey holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with a concentration in Photography graduating with Honors, Magna Cum Laude from Franklin Pierce University.

She fine-tuned her passion for commercial, architectural, and landscape photography while interning for Photographer and Publisher Eric Roth, whose photos are published in national and regional magazines. She brings her knowledge, skills and passion she has acquired from her education and experience to Panospin.

Lindsey loves to travel, photographing her adventures in Australia, Greece, Spain, Italy, and the Domincan Republic. She attributes her hard work ethic and being a team player, her discipline in always striving to improve herself and skills, her sense of responsibility, and upbeat attitude to many years of being a National Competitive Dancer. She has competed with her dance troupe in tap, jazz, and ballet for over 12 years.

Of all these accomplishments, the one thing that makes her smile at the end of a long day is knowing her dog Banjo counts her as his favorite person!

Dianne Wiroll
Technical Programmer & Principal Webmaster

Dianne is the main technical person for Panospin and willing participant on this photography adventure we’re all on.  She contributes the “techie” support for our website and programming of our virtual tours.

Her professional life began in administrative support roles in the corporate world and have morphed into several careers including corporate planner, convention specialist, web & graphic designer, photographer, and now technical programmer. She loves tinkering with applications and programs that present things on the web in creative ways.

Dianne is an artist at heart and pursues anything creative. One frequent comment on her elementary report cards is “Dianne likes to daydream”. This has paid off in her career and her work with Panospin. She designed and built our website and we’re happy to have her incorporating our photography into beautiful 360 virtual tours for our clients.

In her off time, Dianne loves…

  • long walks on the beach (…no really)
  • a hot cup of tea
  • comfy chairs, surroundings, slippers, blankets, people
  • her grandies (AJ, Izzy, Leo & the furry one… Bean)
  • the zen moments of photography
  • Zentangle drawing
  • traveling to places near and far on any kind of road trip
  • learning, exploring, adventures, and riding her bike at the beach
  • enjoying time with friends

She’s currently exploring meditation, the concept of Hygge, watercolor painting, and the art of simplifying and tidying up.
