Although originally born in Scotland, Laura moved to England at an early age. She attended Art College and went on to do a degree in Graphic Arts and Design at Leeds University. She worked as a Creative Designer for a short time, before eventually moving to London to work as a photo editor at several top magazines.
Laura continued to pursue her love for taking pictures and eventually took up photography as a career in 2005. While assisting and continuing to work on developing her style and portfolio, Laura was shortlisted for the finals in the Observer Food Monthly awards in 2006 and gained her first commission for Telegraph Magazine in 2007.
Laura also spends her time, when not shooting, lecturing at various universities across the country.
Laura’s approach is natural, honest & organic with a twist of sumptuousness and humour, all of which reflects her personality. A recent comment was that her food photographs make people want to eat them, her people photographs make them want to meet them and her places make them want to go there!
