I am Karola,
and I take photos

Although I’m small, you can say that I have a pretty big brain to make up for it. 😉 How come, you ask? Well, my head is home to a million creative ideas, which keep developing and multiplying unto themselves.

I photograph, I design, and I create. And the art that I am working with, I am truly devoted to. I’ve been interested in photography from childhood, and this passion has translated itself all the way through school and into my adult life.

I photograph for magazines, for corporations, for models, for couples in love, and everything in between. And ultimately I photograph every subject as if this photo were for my own pleasure.

I followed a similar path with graphic design. I started with 7 simple crayons, I stood many hours by an easel, I doodled hours upon hours in sketchbooks, to finally achieve a master’s degree in graphic design and painting.

I regard my art and my work extremely seriously. I’m fully devoted: I paint, I draw, I create, I imagine, I try, and I search.

The best way to know what’s in your heart is to find it out yourself, and I have found art
