My name is Laura Carter and I am a professional photographer and editorial designer. I am based in Bristol but travel to Bath, Cardiff and London sometimes for shoots.
I have worked with over 100 different models since May 2018. You can view them here. I mainly photograph fashion and portraits, but I also do parties, weddings, collaborations and brand work.
My inspiration comes from other creatives, social media, Pinterest and my surroundings. I find my models through Instagram, message them and ask if they want to shoot and then arrange a date, time and location.
How long have you been doing photography?
I did an A Level in Photography which I finished in May 2018, and I have been doing fashion and portrait photography since then.

I have worked with over 100 models, you can count the exact mount on my clients page, where they are all listed A-Z. Their modelling experience ranges from beginner to professional.

Average 1-2, but I am to do 3-4 per week.
Do you do any other photography than just portrait and fashion?

I have never modelled before, do you shoot beginners?
