“Laura graduated Cum Laude from The Savannah College of Art and Design, with a degree in photography. Shortly after graduation she moved to New York City to pursue her career as a commercial photographer.She became the first assistant and studio manager for Joyce Tenneson where she learned the business side and beauty of fine art portrait photography. After her time with Tenneson she was hired on at Doyle New York, a leading auction house in the city. While with Doyle, Laura flourished in the studio shooting their auction catalogues, advertisements, and covers for several years.

She has a deep seeded love for product photography as her father was an Ad Man at Ted Bates in the ’60s but she knew that there was more to explore while beginning her career.

She left Doyle with confidence that the world of freelance was her next step. Her first solo gig was to shoot the jewelry catalogue for Bonham’s New York.Everything seemed to fall into place for Laura in New York City.She began shooting architectural interiors for major designers and stagers, and in 2009 joined the VHT Studios team.

Laura saw every nook and cranny of the “big city” shooting for VHT and grew to love the challenge that was now an unexpected turn in her journey. After 10 years of the hustle she moved to Florida to change her pace and is now based out of the Tampa Bay area. Laura brought her intense NYC style work ethic down to Florida and is eager to share her passion and excitement for photography.

Some of Laura’s publications include The New York Times, Vogue, Art and Auction, and The Brooklyn Eagle.
