ABOUT

Laura is an award winning photographer specialising in portraiture and documentary. People, places and things. She shoots on film and digital. She has been taking photographs since she can remember. Some better than others…

Born in Scotland, raised in Norfolk and educated in Norwich, London and Lisbon, Laura’s photography commissions and projects have taken her all over the world.

Laura enjoys the beauty of what naturally ‘is’; people’s expressions or movements, their natural habitats, the items that they surround themselves with, and naturally occurring visual patterns in landscapes, objects, nature and urban sprawl. If you’d like to discuss a commission or collaboration you can contact Laura here.
