About Lara

Hi, I’m Lara!

Originally from Sydney, I have called the beautiful Blue Mountains home since 2007, where I live with my husband and our two Golden Retrievers.

I feel very lucky to live on nature’s doorstep and the natural environment is a constant source of creative inspiration.

The earliest memories of my passion for photography go back to when I was 9 and on a family trip to England to see my grandparents. Even at such a young age I remember quite vividly feeling like I was truly in my element, travelling around the English countryside shooting stills on the automatic 35mm film camera my parents had bought me. It feels like photography is part of my being; it’s in my blood. I don’t know how to not always be looking, studying light, searching for that decisive moment. It is my true passion and enriches my life every day.

When I’m traveling & exploring I am inspired most, as it fuels my adventurous spirit. I’m a lover of British comedy (Monty Python forever), people watching, David Attenborough & Werner Herzog documentaries, quality time with friends in quaint beer gardens, live music, & I have a somewhat crazy obsession with exploring old abandoned buildings.

I am a fully Accredited Member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography.
