If you’d love more, join me for my Visionary Portfolio e-course. We’re going to make fabulous progress, and we’ll chat every day about rich topics like this. It’s so much fun. I’d love to see you (and your gorgeous photographs) there!

Here’s what folks are saying about the class:

“This class has given me a sense of freedom. In life we all place limits around what we can do (or want to do). This class helped me realize that some of the limits I’d mentally put in place could be moved, expanded, or totally removed.”
— Ron O.

“Your ‘insider knowledge’ as a professional curator was really helpful in clearing up some of my misconceptions, and the depth and detail of the knowledge you shared was awesome!” 
— Jim Kushman

“Laura’s Visionary Portfolio class was life changing for me…I was able to dive into my chaotic catalogs and understand and put into use everything she shared - and I created two portfolios that I am happy with.”
— Susan Metzger

Class starts soon!

Hi, I’m Laura


I’m a photographer and curator who helps people hone their vision, deepen their relationship with their craft, and make meaningful images they love. I’ve had my fingers in a lot of pots in the art world, for over 20 years now. I teach interactive e-courses, support emerging photographers in my creative mentoring program, speak to photo groups, and curate exhibitions for galleries and photo festivals around the world. I also jury photo competitions and serve as a reviewer at national and international portfolio review events, where I help photographers fine-tune their vision and promote their work with more confidence. 

The Light Atlas courses are here to help you clear creative blocks and bring forward your most skillful, authentic, wholehearted work. Each of my offerings goes deeper than mere mechanics - into the heart of making your creative process brilliantly, joyfully alive.
