Charlotte ChapmanHi, it's Veronika here! Today I'm going to introduce to you a great vegan photographer Charlotte and her shop based in England. Charlotte is also a like-minded business owner who sells on Etsy - her beautiful nature photographies which she offers as cards and prints for many occasions. But that's not all! Charlotte, please let us know more about you and your brand, work and goals:

Hi Veronika,

Thanks for getting in touch with me.
In simple terms, I studied Art & Design at college and fell in love with photography. I have been taking photos ever since. I enjoy all kinds of photography but mostly landscape and nature, especially when I use my macro lens and I am able to get great close up pictures of flowers and lovely bumblebees.

I have recently started to do more photography outside of my day job, in the past year I have shot 6 weddings plus various newborn and family shoots. I enjoy capturing memories for people but I still just love going for a walk and taking my camera to see what I might find.

About a year ago I set up my Etsy shop, I don’t expect to make much money on here, but it is nice to have another place to showcase my work. It is also great that I don’t need to purchase greeting cards anymore as I just use my own :)

Veronika: That's a good point - for the same reason I started making maths cards =) I love yours - especially the cat-themed cards... (just look at it!)

I plan to sell greeting cards and prints mainly of nature, landscapes and animals, however, I aim to do some more vegan related pieces too. I have just ordered some more cards with a few different designs, so I will take photos of them once they arrive.

With my photography, I would ideally love to work with other vegans, especially clothing lines, charities, shops etc…
I have taken photos on marches and various activist events and recently did some merch shots for The Animal Justice Project. See some examples below:

In terms of products, I have greeting cards which are left blank inside and many of them can be used for various occasions, plus you can, of course, frame the image afterwards. The cards are made from sustainably sourced paper and the envelopes are made from recycled paper, also I do not use any plastic to wrap or send them in. I asked the company I order them from and they said they do not use any animal ingredients in any of their products.

I want to expand my greetings cards and do some “silly” ones, including vegan phrases or quotes alongside animals.

My frames are one-off pieces I have decided to frame and put online. I aim to do a whole selection of Japanese prints at some point, as I visited Japan earlier this year.

I want to try and take more photos at the more vegan protests and also write more blog posts (though I am very much a beginner in this areas!)

So much I want to do, so little time! :)

Many Thanks,
Charlotte :)

Veronika: Thank you Charlotte for your time, activism and your work!

Hi, it's Veronika, your vegan friend and content creator of Veronika Honestly (no, not my surname).
I'm mathemagician (making money as maths tutor! ?), a bit of an artist (well, trying to get back to art) and also animal and adventure lover.
Get to know me on my About page and make sure you sign up for my newsletter to get my free printable greeting cards for vegans I made for everyone to use and spread the vegan word!

See you around and on my social media - stay in touch!

Thank you for reading this whole article =) I have a few things to mention here:

Firstly, if not already mentioned in the article, I would like you to know about my Honest Language Disclaimer (no, it's not about profanity) - in case you were wondering why my English is so weird and not Oxford-dictionary perfect (whose English is, anyway...)

Secondly, my post may contain affiliate links. Namely Etsy and Amazon links. If you click through and buy anything there, I will get a small commission, so you are basically helping me to reach the goals, to raise funds for animals sanctuaries. All of that at no extra cost to you or the seller. It's a win-win =)

Now, in the end, I have a tiny request: If you liked this post, could you please share this?
Sharing helps to keep my costs down so more can go towards animal charities and perhaps you'll make one's day by showing them something from this blog they will like to read! A share from you would seriously help a lot with the growth of this blog that focuses on spreading the vegan word and kindness - just the things you also care about =)

You may like to pin some graphics from here, you may want to share it to your blog (do you have a vegan-themed blog? Let me know, let's collaborate!) or to your favourite Facebook group... there are plenty of choices!

Thank you for your support!

And... what now?

If you read all of the above, then, by all means, you're awesome for reading it all! And I believe you are interested at least a bit in my work here - I'd say we may have a thing or two in common! =)

Let's stay connected - sign up for my newsletter and don't miss any big and interesting news from me, tips and ideas on how to get on with your vegan journey as well as how to spread the vegan awareness (I do it the friendly way).
There's always something going on here. Be a part of it.

And don't forget about my free printable greeting cards for animal lovers and a discount on my products - only for subscribers!
