Now this is a big statement but being a girl with Italy and the sea in her heart having a giant print of both on my walls changes how I feel every day.

When I sit down to dinner not only do I get to look at my beautiful Italian hubby but I get to have Italy in the background and I have to admit even sometimes my eyes waver off his handsome face to the beach behind him and my heart purrs with happiness!!

If a girl can’t live at the beach at least she can live with it in her house every day and today you have a chance to win one of your own.

New Website + Win A Print

carla coulson blog

Hello Friends,
A labour of love is finally completed!
I have been wanting to overhaul my website for a year and today I am happy to launch the new version.
Things look a whole lot different but the heart and soul is still the same.
I have tried to organise the site so you can navigate easily. Some of your favourite subjects have been included under the blog tab and now you can actually see inside my books by clicking on the books tab on the Nav Bar.
Slip into your cossies, bathers or swimsuit depending where you are in the world as I have something for you. I am proud to launch my limited edition print series called “La Vacanza Italiana’, a voluptuous celebration of beauty, colour and the sea.

Those who follow along know of my obsession with Italy and the sea and how it has been one of my favourite subjects since writing and photographing Italian Joy and shooting My Amalfi Coast for Amanda Tabberer.

This summer I followed my heart and went back to the ‘motherland ‘, the Amalfi Coast! One of the places that cemented my love for Italy almost 15 years ago and has been a place I have visited and photographed ever since. I shot this series for me and for you!

A Love Story – Limited Edition Print

limited edition prints, fine art prints, carla coulson, capri, cross processed, fashion shoot,

One of my special photographic moments will be available in my Limited Edition shop this Wednesday. This was also the cover image for Chasing A Dream and one of those freaky photographic moments that happens but you never expect it to! So thrilled to be able to share it with you.

The Story Behind The Image:

I was on a shoot in Capri for a fashion magazine and had scouted the main town the day before for possible places to shoot. I loved this wall but at the time there was no graffiti. The fashion editor briefed the model in the morning, she told her “you have come to Capri, last night you fell in love with someone from the Island and this morning you have woken and changed your mind. Today you want to run away.”

The model ran and ran all day till we came to this last spot for the final shoot of the day. Overnight someone (with a broken heart) had graffitied ‘una vita per farmi innamorarmi, cosi presto per dimenticarmi’.

We all stood with our mouths gaping and goosebumps, the graffiti said ‘it took me a lifetime to fall in love with you and so quickly you forgot me.’ It was as though the fashion editor’s thoughts were truly connected to someone’s love story on Capri.

That’s photography for you!

Print Details:

This photo was taken in Capri Italy on slide film, it was then cross processed to give it a strong contrast and added grain. All blur in this image is intentional.

Print image size –  24 x 36cm

Paper size – 40 x 50cm.

Frame and Matt board NOT INCLUDED

Print shipped in 7-10 days from order date with a tracking number by standard mail.

Flat packed in a rigid art folder.
