About Me

I was born in Poland and grew up in Germany, where we moved when I was 1.5 years old.

In 2010 I left my job as a primary school teacher and gave up my appartment and belongings to travel the world and work as a dive instructor. I lived in Greece, Egypt, Mexico, New Zealand, The Maldives, Thailand, Indonesia, Fiji, Cayman Islands and travelled to over 60 countries.

In January 2021 I came to Mexico on a one way ticket and ended up staying. I bought a tiny house in the jungle and made Tulum my home base, which was a life changing step for me, as I hadn't owned a chair in over a decade and suddenly I was a house owner.

That's when I created @tulumphotography.by.karolina

Even though photography has been a big fascination from day one using a film camera, it became a true passion when I started travelling and living as a nomad full time. Back then I was using a simple point and shoot camera. One of these water and shock proof types that could handle my adventure travels. Even though the photos weren't high quality it was all about capturing the moment and the essence of the place.

I still don't see myself as a commercial photographer and have turned down jobs that didn't inspire me.

During my work as a dive instructor I had the chance to explore underwater photography as well. Still only using a point and shoot camera, therefore the less than good quality. :)

In recent years I upgraded my gear and took my photography to a professional level. After getting bookings in Tulum without even offering this service officially, I decided to finally turn my passion into my job, and have been doing this ever since. I've been truly grateful for this experince and every single photoshoot I had. Every client and photoshoot is unique and I've made some amazing friends along the way.

Let's connect and create something beautiful together!
