Carroll Seghers II was born in Cincinnati, OH, and moved with his parents to Coral Gables, FL. As a pilot and flight instructor during World War II, Seghers was stationed in Columbus, MS and Sheppard Field in Wichita Falls, TX, where he was one of the first 19 helicopter pilots in the Army Air Corps, now the U.S. Air Force.
His photographic talent was first discovered while on his honeymoon in Europe, when he snapped a picture of the street capture of a famous thief by French police, which was immediately solicited by newspaper and wire services. It was an experience that transformed him forever.
It was on this honeymoon where he formed a friendship with fellow photographer Ernst Haas.
