We’re especially excited to have Lauren of Lauren Selby Photography teach a class at the space she’s all too familiar with. As some of you may know, she takes the majority of the photos for our brand, and this girl has never met a photoshoot that she didn’t put her whole heart into . We love Lauren’s energy and enthusiasm for pulling out the pretty. Read more about our photo-taking pal below:
How did you discover your passion for photography?
I’ve always been fascinated by photography, playing with color and black and white film with my point and shoot Kodak from a young age. When I was 16, I was accepted into a Black and White film photography class at a career center where I learned everything about photography and how to develop my own film and prints in a darkroom. I fell in love and I was hooked for life.
Tell us some fun things about yourself:
- I love ‘The Office’. I’ve watched the series in its entirety at least 5 times through. You can drop almost any line from the show and I recognize it immediately.
- I live for live music. It’s not uncommon that I attend multiple concerts in a week. We live in a pretty awesome hub for touring musicians, so I take advantage whenever I can!
- I have an interesting (to say the least) relationship with nature. Wildlife seems to have it out for me, from regular bird attacks on casual walks, to having to get rabies shots from a bat attack, to almost crashing my car when a yellow jacket stung me on the eye while driving..it’s made me (slightly) more cautious of nature.
We just love Lauren’s passion for all things photography (and all things music) and we especially love her passion for educating others!
We’re just 3 days away from learning how to master manual mode with Lauren! If you can’t wait to get some hands-on experience with photo-taking and hear Lauren’s tips, grab your ticket here!
