I am the chap who yesterday waxed lyrical about your photograph of the Queen at Harvey’s Brewery. For me, it absolutely captures the ‘decisive moment’ when the past, present and future of the story can be read. It is also very witty, with the Queen striding on ahead, leaving Philip chatting to Miles Jenner, glimpsed through the window. A perfect shot.” Chris

“Just had a rare bit of time to peruse your website – amazing pictures, I had to tear myself away to get on with something altogether more mundane!” – Caroline

Carlotta has worked with us on several events and conferences and consistently produces photography of high quality and creativity. Her professional and friendly approach makes everyone feel comfortable and this is really reflected in the photographs. Carlotta turns the photos around very quickly which is important as often we need the images for press releases or event reports. Not least, Carlotta is an absolute pleasure to work with and we look forward to doing so again in the near future.” – University of Sussex

“We have employed Carlotta on a number of different graphic design and photographic projects for Lewes District Council. She has helped us create a strong visual identity for our destination marketing ‘Stay Lewes’, working within a tight deadline and to our specific brief. The fantastic retro brand identity has recently been seen as far as Canada… Carlotta also designed some great posters for our fringe events as part of the Gentlemen of the Road (Mumford & Sons) Stopover festival last year. Carlotta always responds positively and enthusiastically to our requests, often they have been at really short notice, and she delivers the work quickly within deadline. She has worked with us on finding solutions to a number of design problems and consequently we will keep on using her skills, talent and ideas when we can!” – Jackie Blackwell, Regeneration Project Manager, Lewes District Council

“I have been very fortunate having met Carlotta a few years ago when she came to photograph the more hidden sides of my business Ouse Valley Foods. Her images surprise and delight, sometimes gently challenging the observer to flip their perception of an every day object or situation. To me, her intuitive eye is both edgy and elegant, often humorous and always thought provoking. Her experience in publishing and book design was invaluable in managing the coordination and direction of the publishing of my book Granny Marmalade & Uncle Tractor; she is now working on another children’s book I have written. I have much to thank her for including a deep and respectful friendship.” – Julian Warrender, founder of Ouse Valley Foods and children’s book author

“I asked you to take some family photos as I had seen the way you capture your subjects with such a distinctive style and use locations so imaginatively too. I was looking for pictures of my girls which weren’t formal, composed shots (I’d had a much less successful attempt at that some years’ ago). Your photos are beautifully taken, relaxed, and reflect my daughters’ individual characters perfectly whilst making such great use of the quirky settings we chose. Thank you so much.” – Sarah

“I have been working with Carlotta since 2011, when she designed the first of my two websites. Since then, she has designed the second website, letterheads, business cards and email footers. She has also worked for my partner, a classical musician, designing programmes and leaflets. Carlotta is a joy to work with: she’s reliable, prompt, thoughtful and adaptable and yet remains true to her artistic eye. I’ve recommended her to friends and other organisations, always without a moment’s hesitation.” – Mary

“Dear Carlotta, I wanted to say how much I enjoyed looking at the local food producers photographs. As well as being beautiful they were so informative about what great things go on around here day after day, your words about the Flint Owl bakers working through the night amidst the flour. I particularly liked a photo of a field of red cabbages at Ashurst with the trees along the top of the image, it was so sculptural, the cabbages like metal sculptures, their edges sharply lit. I admire Peter and Collette so much and as you say they make hardly any money from all their hard work so it was lovely to see the praise of the photographs and I hope many other people see the photographs and can be thankful of their craft and skill and of yours.” – Best wishes from Tessa 

“These photos look AMAZING ! I’m actually quite shocked at how well they’ve turned out…. By that I mean, I know your other work is excellent but I really didn’t think you had much to work with today. I’m stunned . These are such a long way from the snaps I’ve taken in there ! Well done and thanks so much.” – Malcolm

“The photos look great and it’s the project (Local Food Producers) I’ve been dreaming someone will take up for ages. I think your pictures capture brilliantly the craft and the graft and the beauty without making it seem twee and idealised romantically.” – Collette


“Every time Ben and I look through the photographs Carlotta took of our wedding, we are just blown away! We opted for a low key wedding – wanting to keep the day small and simple, surrounded by the people we love. Carlotta has captured the intimacy of our day perfectly, as well as the emotion and joy we all shared. We are so pleased that we have the most special day of our lives together documented in these wonderful shots. Thank you so much Carlotta.” – Claire and Ben

“Carlotta took wonderful photos of our wedding – which was no easy feat, as it spanned three totally different locations, indoors and outside. She was relaxed yet professional – and completely unobtrusive for the candid (unposed) shots whilst ensuring we also got some perfect staged pictures of us, our families and guests. Everyone who has seen them has commented on what a great record they are of our day – capturing all the laughter and love and everyone who is special to us. We were thrilled and surprised by some of the moments she managed to capture that we had missed. We would very highly recommend her services.” – Polly and Khobir

“You completely captured the day. So many gorgeous pictures. Thank you so much!” – Anne and Steve

“We both can’t thank you enough for your beautiful wedding photos. The atmosphere was captured perfectly and you made us, and our guests, feel really at ease. The results were more than we could of hoped for and we now have the hard task of deciding which one to put on the wall!” – Laura and Will
