I’m Laura, and I’m a Leeds Photographer. I’ve been taking photos for seventeen years now, since I bought my first disposable camera at thirteen. My equipment and skills have improved massively since then. I’m now using my DSLR (a Canon 1200D) with a variety of lenses (18-55mm, 35mm, 50mm and 70-300mm) an Olympus Pen E PL7 with a 14-40mm lens and editing software such as Lightroom and Photoshop to produce the quality photographs you see on this site.
Early on in 2017, I decided it was about time I tried to make my passion for photography and love of meeting new people work for me. I officially launched Laura Haley Photography in July, and I’ve spent the last six months working on this business full time to enable me to build a client base, a varied portfolio, active social media channels and this website. Being a sensible (apparently) adult (again, apparently) I took a full time job in March 2018 so I can get a mortgage, but I’m still taking bookings outside of the 9-5.
I’m passionate about continued personal growth and so I’m always learning, be that through practicing new skills I’ve taught myself or doing online courses to improve my work. Clients can look forward to a fun, relaxed shoot with me.
As well as being a Leeds Photographer I’m a big fan of travel and writing. I created and run a Travel and Lifestyle Blog called Inside Laura’s Head, which I’m very proud of. Working on travel projects like 12 in 12 and 40 before 40 keeps me busy, but I still have lots of time to be out with my camera. I’m often taking pictures of beautiful places, and I’d like to be taking photos of YOU.
My aim is to provide you with great photographs and a relaxed, fun shoot for a reasonable price. I’d rather give you prices up front so there are no nasty surprises, and there’ll be no sit down viewings and hard sell from me. You’ll receive an e-mail, within a week of your shoot unless advised otherwise, with all your digital images.
I’m a photographer who prefers natural, subtle editing. I will correct lighting and remove anything that shouldn’t be in the photo. If there’s a bottle in the water or your child has a stain on their top, I’ll fix that. I don’t slim your thighs, remove spots or do any heavy editing, because you’re perfect as you are. You can have a look at my work on this website. I have different portfolios: Solo/Fashion, Couples, Family, Events/Parties and I’m open to all styles of photography. I love a challenge.
Laura Haley Photography is my business, I want you to love your experience with me as much as I do. You can contact me by e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org, on Facebook through my page Laura Haley Photography and on Twitter @LauraHaleyPhoto. You can also follow me on Instagram if you like. Please do get in touch with any enquiries and I hope you’ll make me your Leeds Photographer.
