Born and raised on the West Coast, Laura Tillinghast began making art at a young age. She explored many mediums until finally discovering photography when she was 17 years old. From that point on, she knew she had found the tool she was looking for to bring her imagination to life. As a regularly published photographer for over 17 years, Laura values understanding light on a deep level and teaches a series of popular lighting workshops, both privately and for the Canon Live Learning Centers.
Laura has been profiled in magazines such as Professional Photographer, Adweek and Picture Magazine. She attended the prestigious Eddie Adams Workshop and has won a number of industry distinctions, including a DA&D award. Shooting primarily advertising and editorial content, you never know what you will find in front of Laura's lens. Whether it is a gorgeous model, a rock band or a bowl of oatmeal, she shoots with the same goal in mind; make it beautiful.
