I feel so lucky to be able to share another amazingly talented lady with you in our 5 things series. Carla Coulson is an super talented photographer living in Paris. She has been a part of some of my favorite books, offers beautiful portrait sessions in the city and photography workshops all over Europe among other things. I cannot wait to have my own session with her on my next trip to Paris!!
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I had no idea. I remember thinking I wanted to be a beautician or a nurse in my teens and then tried a week of work experience and decided against it. I was one of those people that had no clear idea about what they wanted to do and it took me till I was 35 to find photography and it was almost by accident. But when I found it was as good as a great love affair.
Where do you find inspiration?
Light is an incredible inspiration for me because it can turn the most mundane subject into pure magic. I also adore the cinema, the work that goes into a film, the attention to detail and lighting often sends me home wanting to grab the camera and do a photo shoot.
Do you work from home? Office? Studio?
I work from home and I love it. I adore the lack of commuting and as I am often out shooting or away it works perfectly for me. I also love having the time to make myself something fabulous for lunch or organize my washing!
Are you a City girl or a Country girl?
I lived in the country for most of my teens but have spent my adult life in the city. There is a big part of me that yearns to live in the country, have an organic vegetable patch and be surrounded by nature. For now I live in Paris with my Italian husband and cat.
What are you reading right now?
A History of the World in 100 Objects by Neil MacGregor
I loved this book. I adore history and this book is a journey through history via 100 objects in the British Museum. The author does a great job recreating the world as it was around the object and the importance it represents in the evolution of our society. Fabulous.
