Carole Zagrovic


Carole was born in Staithes and has spent most of her life in the village.

She became interested in photography during the early 90’s with her sister Mandi., using 35mm SLR camera’s and developing their own B&W prints at a local school facility.

Carole remembers being inspired by attending workshops in those early days with Ian MacDonald, a local photographer Carole has followed and admired for many years.
Whilst they both follow the saying ‘using film makes you shoot less and think more’ Carole believes that their use of new digital equipment means they can make their prints more accessible and less expensive. Most of their pictures are of the village and printed and framed by themselves.

Carole believes the Craft Centre not only provides an outlet for independent craftspeople but also brings a unique and diverse shopping experience for visitors.

I hope our prints reflect our response to this beautiful landscape we are fortunate to live in and a lasting memory of the peace and tranquility visitors and locals can find here.

They both manage a locally based wedding and events photography business:
