Hello, I'm Carolyn.

I’m a freelance photographer & maker.

I’ve been working as a photographer for over 10 years. I have exhibited my work and set up my own studio & photographic darkroom. My style is creative & informal, choosing a natural environment over a studio set up. 

I run photography workshops for those wishing to take better pictures with their digital cameras and find their personal style.

I love traditional craft. My knitwear and crochet designs are simple & fuss free  and focus on comfort, quality and function. I prefer to work with natural colours & materials. 

More recently I have discovered a love for design and have worked on websites + logos for small businesses. As well as helping clients to develop brand identity & navigate social media.

I run a biannual art, design & craft market with my friend here in Birmingham, called The Paperdolls.

Keen to live a simple, conscious & creative life, i share about some of the ways in my blog, incorporating my love of photography, the arts & crafts & some bits and pieces of our life.

i live with my husband and two girls.
