Jesus Carlos Rosales was born on June 20, 1952, in Tampico Bay Northeast of Mexico about 300 miles on the Gulf of Mexico from Brownsville, Texas, which is a large industrial and very important international sea port city on the Gulf of Mexico with a population of over 1.2 million people. Carlos married his wife Maria In 1973. Their first son. Roberto, was born in Mexico in 1974. Carlos and his family came to visit his sister in Columbus, Mississippi in 1979 for the first time. Then in 1982 his sister's husband passed away and Carlos came to his funeral. His sister asked him to stay and Carlos saw an opportunity to start a new life for himself and his family coming to the states under a "Green Card". In 1984 his second son Christopher was born in Mississippi. He learned photography while working at his sister's restaurant and in 1988 he opened his formal photography studio under the name "Carlos Rosales Photography." With a lack of English and living in a new culture he motivated himself to push forward doing the best he could.
Years passed and his business that he established in 1988 on Main Street remained open and in 1996 his son Roberto Carlos became his associate. This led to a new era of digital multimedia services and led to a new name, "Carlos' Studios." In 1993, his life changed and Carlos affirmed his loyalty to his adopted country when he became a naturalized citizen of the United States of America.
In 2005 Carlos opened new doors by opening Tampico Bay University Side in Columbus, Mississippi where his son Christopher continued to operate it as the owner and his son Roberto as the bar owner. He shut down Carlos' Studios during the same time. He dedicated his time to his family trying to establish their restaurant, but people and companies continued to look for him to work on digital projects and photography services. With that in 2007 he and Roberto reopen their studio again, but under a new name CS Digital Productions LLC Cinematic film studios. Since opening Carlos has worked for and with several companies and organizations. He has also filmed four independent movies in that time including "Sabers of Courage" (2009), "La Madame" (2017) "The World That Never Was" (2019), and "Souls of Darkness" (2021) Another  business he opened was a café named "Quartier Latin Café" which was opened for 4 years, but as the workload increased for CS Digital it closed its doors in order for Carlos and his family to pursue business opportunities that became available Today Carlos continues to work with companies, organizations, and creating cinematic independent short films. He continues to stay motivated with the help of family as he continues to display what means to live the American dream.
