    Summary: Carolyn Caddes (1935- ) is an American photographer who spent years photographing portraits of famous Californian innovators. Her book, Portraits of Success: Impressions of Silicon Valley Pioneers, focused on Silicon Valley technology visionaries such as Steve Jobs, Robert Noyce and David Packard. She spent many hours with each of her subjects and provided an intimate look into their lives. She also conducted extensive research on her subjects’ companies. Portraits of Success was published in 1986 and Caddes did follow up portraits of these pioneers and other technology pioneers on the rise in the mid-1990s for Nikkei, a Japanese business magazine. In the early 2000s, Caddes began another book project. She interviewed and photographed wine makers in Napa Valley. Although this project never became a book, Caddes conducted hours of personal and professional research as well as photographed some of the major contributors in Napa’s wine industry.
