Caroline True spent 30-years in the music business, as a commissioner of music videos at Virgin Records in the 80’s. Moving to LA in ’89, True co-founded Black Dog Films, a music video production company with Jake Scott, the son of director Ridley Scott. After a few years, True returned to London as the creative director for Virgin Music Worldwide, working creatively alongside artists including The Rolling Stones, Janet Jackson, Maria Carey, Lenny Kravitz, David Bowie and George Michael.
During this tenure, True developed a unique friendship with the late George Michael—a deep personal and professional relationship that continued until his untimely and heartbreaking death. As Michael’s creative director and photographer, True produced his documentary, “A Different Story”, and co-produced and co-directed the 2011-2012 “Symphonica” Tour, photographing the images for the Symphonica tour book and album.
Most currently, in June 2019, True had the privilege of producing a short film at the Morneau Shepell School for Girls in Kakuma, a refugee camp in Kenya. Humbled with the opportunity, True interviewed these inspiring girls, learning, and sharing their voices, giving them the chance to tell their story to the world. The film won an award in the Medium Corporate Company category at the International Corporate Citizen Film Festival established by the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship.
Caroline True continues to capture life through a lens and now reside in a quiet yet quaint village— in Somerset, England, as a portrait and fine art photographer. True also works with LifeWorks by Morneau Shepell, as creative director—a company that provides organizations with healthy work environments and well-being for employees.
