Lara Jade, born 1989, currently resides in Central London. Her career began early at the age of fifteen, when she picked up a camera and started experimenting with self-portraiture, romanticism, and fantasy photography - themes which are still present in her work today. At only seventeen she started her own business, Lara Jade Photography. Originally taking on small clients, she soon picked up a strong understanding of the business qualities needed to deal with her high demand for work. To this day she hasn't looked back, moving from strength to strength, becoming the youngest photographer to shoot at the world famous Spring Studios to date.
Her exploration with themes, coupled with a love for the works of Tim Walker, Ellen Von Unwerth and Mary Ellen Mark have inspired the unique creations seen in her daily work.
Lara's much sought after romantic and conceptual feel with a hint of darkness with maturity beyond her years makes her one of the most promising photographers around. She also continues to be a source of inspiration for millions of other photographers and artists. A reflection of this is the 11 million hits on just one site showcasing her work (DeviantArt).
Lara is currently working worldwide alongside leading agencies in both London and Milan. She is signed with Milan-based agency Sudest57, who spotted Lara's talents and signed her early on. A number of sponsorships followed, including Bowens Lighting, Samsung, and DataColor. Lara was also winner of the Public Choice Award at the 2009 AOP Open Awards.
A strong pursuit of perfection means Lara spends all her spare time working relentlessly on her ever-improving portfolio, as well as teaching workshops across the UK and worldwide. Her website is http://www.larajade.co.uk/
