My workshops aim to cover everything on a typical fashion shoot and more – bringing the experience and knowledge I have gained from my own personal journey and industry experience. Starting photography with the rise of digital mediums and growth of social media I was able to find my voice in photography very early on - realizing that there's more opportunity to now than ever. The current landscape of the industry is ever-changing so why stick with old methods? I am a firm believer that your marketing plan should be as creative as your vision if not more. If you're not creating then you're not evolving.
These 2 day intensive workshops are designed to assist you in creating beautiful imagery and take your business to the next level. Myself and my team of styling and beauty experts will be at hand to show you what it takes to grow your portfolio and make your business successful. Over two days we will cover everything there is to know about fashion photography – revealing what’s behind the curtain on lighting, posing and business. This is not just an excellent learning opportunity – it’s a great way to network and be around other like-minded creatives.
The workshop attendee numbers are small and exclusive, which means we have time to focus on individuals and cater to every photographer’s needs; whether you are an amateur, an industry professional or even specialize in an entirely different field of photography altogether. We are sure that after the two days you will leave with new ideas, knowledge and most of all – inspiration and guidance to put into your own practice.

Acting as creative director of most of her personal and editorial shoots, as well as contributing ideas to client shoots, Lara has built a large archive of personal and client work in a small number of years and has led to her individual style which you see today.
