As a fellow artist I know how important good quality images of your work are. That coupled with my experience as a professional photographer and retoucher means that I can help you get the photographs you need. I've created the photography packages below with artists in mind:

"Laara was the first person we thought to contact about documenting an artistic project we were working on! We are huge fans of her photography and knew she’d be the right person for the job. Even though we knew that Laara has a very high standard of professionalism and work, we were still blown away. She went above and beyond to get the exact shots we needed and her gentle nature made even the most camera shy of us feel comfortable and at ease." 

- THRIVE Art Studio

"Having worked with Laara as an artist and as a documentarian, I fee she has a keen eye for capturing the idiosyncratic features of an artist's studio. What may seem like a discarded or inconsequential moment to the average viewer, Laara has a way of framing these aspects to tell a unique story. I think this is due to the fact that she is a fine artist herself, and has exercised her visualization skills and attention to detail."

What is your rate?

My rate starts at $300.  A 50% deposit is required to confirm booking as well as e-signing my contract.  The remainder is due upon receiving your photos.  Scanning prices are variable, starting at $10 for one 4"x6."

Do I have to bring my artwork to you?

I will come to you to photograph your work, but anything scanned will need to be dropped off at ABC Photo, 472 West 15th Avenue in Vancouver from Monday to Friday, 9am - 5:30pm.  Please confirm with me before bringing in your work.

The lighting in my studio isn’t very good, is that ok?

Yes!  I bring studio strobes so the lighting in your studio is not important.  

What do I need to do to prepare?

Please have available wall space and a hook or nail to hang your work, as well as space in front of and beside for my camera and lights.  If you could arrange your work based on size that would be helpful too!

How long does it take to receive final files?

Approximately 1 week.  If you need specific images sooner please let me know.

The images look different on my screen than they do in person.

The images will differ across all monitors unless the monitor is calibrated.  I photograph a colour checker to ensure accurate colour reproduction but am happy to make any adjustments in post production to make sure they represent the original.

How far in advance should I book?

At least one month.

Any other questions?  Please email me at and I will get back to you shortly!
