In 2000 Carla Coulson left her corporate job and glamorous Sydney life behind in pursuit of a dream to start a new life for herself in Europe as a photographer. In her first book, Italian Joy, she describes the joys and hardships of her first five years, spent living in Florence. In 2004, Carla moved to Paris with her partner, Francesco, and in 2008 she published Paris Tango, a tribute to her new home. Chasing a Dream, an inspiring collection of Carla's photography and stories, was published in 2011. Carla has a popular blog, Carlalovesphotography, and her photography has been published in Marie Claire, Australian Gourmet Traveller, Collezione, Vogue Entertaining + Travel and Flair, among others.
