Calvert Crary is the Executive Director of both state licensed career development schools FlowerSchool New York and FlowerSchool Los Angeles, and author of Flower School: A Practical Guide to the Art of Flower Arranging (Nov 2020). After over a decade as a professional photographer, shooting mostly lifestyles and fashion, Calvert made the transition to floral entrepreneur in 2006. Having opened and successfully run three flower businesses in New York City simultaneously, he not only knows his way around the camera but the cut flower world as well. As an internationally recognized instructor and mentor, Calvert has taught programs across the United States, Holland, Mexico, France, and Australia, and was this year’s judge for the prestigious PHS Philadelphia Flower Show. Calvert has trained and coached thousands of students on working in the floral industry with top designers, starting new businesses, or reorganizing existing floral businesses into thriving careers.
