Hi, I’m Laura, a freelance wedding and model portrait photographer based North of Brisbane in Morayfield, QLD, Australia.
I’m a passionate photographer and my attention and curiosity is ineluctably drawn to the things that make my world larger and more interesting. For this, portraits are a fantastic reservior of inspiration. Something about portraits and people, whether models or ordinary people, just really inspires me. Even if it’s just a head shot of someone looking straight at the camera, sometimes something as simple as that can create a story or an emotion much bigger than what we had ever imagined that photo to be about. And that’s what i’m trying to create with “Laura Franklin Photography”, capturing your world through my lens and capturing memories and stories so you can share them with your friends and family.
While I had been interested in photography for the majority of my life, I decided to do an arts course after high school instead of following my dream of becoming a photographer. So in 2007, I went to college and studied Contemporary Visual Arts & Crafts. It was there that I also did a short photoshop and photography module and I knew photography was something I definitely wanted to professionally pursue.
Although I had started to put together a portfolio of work before my course, it wasn’t until the end of 2007 where I delved more into the world of photography and started creating a professional portfolio. I have been focusing on model portraits, people/baby portraits, weddings and events and have a large portfolio showing many different genres and styles of photography. Visit my gallery for all the different types of work I do.
If i’m not editing or photographing newborns, families, mothers to be, models or brides and grooms you’ll probably find me looking for anything vintage online. I have a mad obsession for vintage things – old antique looking jewellery, furniture, material/fabric, you name it. And as of late, I have a crazy obsession for owls. I absolutely love owls, I don’t know why :)
I also love different cultures and had travelled through Europe in 2015, and therefore would love to travel more overseas and delve into photo journalistic style photography too. And i’d love to do all of that with my husband Geoff Franklin. He is amazing and also a photographer/videographer in his spare time. He sometimes comes along to my model photoshoots with me capturing behind the scenes footage as well as providing professional High Definition video highlights of the weddings we capture together. You can view the video’s we’ve worked on together in the video gallery on my site.
Geoff also is a web and graphic designer and developer and actually created this website for me as well as my business cards and flyers for special offers that I advertise with. If you’d like a quote or to see his amazing portfolio of work, visit his website here – www.existonline.com.au.
