My name is Lauren I’m a freelance photojournalist and portrait photographer from Milwaukee, WI who is currently based out of Buffalo, NY.
I am passionate about challenging injustice, pursuing social equality, and advancing human rights through all types of photography which I have done at the Shepherd Express and Riverwest Currents.
In Spring of 2020 I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a bachelor’s degree in rhetoric, professional and technical writing. I am currently working towards a master’s degree in literature at The State University of New York at Buffalo.
While attending college I've cultivated an understanding of different lifestyles and traditions. What I like most about English education and photography is they are both a platform to construct narrative and discuss culture.
I use my varied background to tell my clients stories through writing as well as through photographs using thoughtful and ethical communication.
Through my work my goal is to create a compelling global portfolio during my lifetime revealing a variety of culture and client identity in a way that is honest, principled, and inclusive. My mission is the documenting of world events, places, and people through a national publication.
