PPA Certified, Master Photographer
Milton, WV

Since 1991, Laura has been creating award-winning photographic landscape and scenic images.  She is one of only 3% of professional photographers in the United States that has achieved national certification from the Professional Photographic Certification Commission.  She has completed requirements and successfully recertified in 2003 and 2008.  Additionally, she was awarded Master Photographer in 2001.  Laura is a Tamarack artist, whose work has been juried into galleries and art shows in WV, OH, and KY.  She is one of the selected artists in the University of Charleston WV Artists Emma Byrd Gallery permanent exhibit.

She utilizes digital capture with minimal postproduction to produce images that evoke emotional memories to represent the beauty of nature. Laura’s goal and aspiration is to be a technically-proficient, aesthetically-pleasing photographer who continues to improve one’s craft. She continutes to successfully compete in professional competitions and participate in continuing education activities.

Laura’s current goals include enhancing creativity utilizing digital imagery to portray realistic landscape images, exploring marketing and business development skills, continuing to use desktop publishing and graphic art skills to create collages and mixed media artwork.

The portfolio of Laura’s work includes publications, calendars, tourist brochures, speaking at local, state and regional conferences, solo and group exhibits, as well as selected participation in galleries, gift shops, and art and craft shows.  A new area Laura is offering is commissioned work for home decor.

Community activities are important as well.  Artwork has been donated to various nonprofit organizations.  Laura also volunteers her time to serve on various board of directors.  In 2009, Laura was awarded the Joseph W. Barta, Jr. Memorial Award for her outstanding service to the Professional Photographers of West Virginia.

Laura features metallic photographs that are professionally printed on archival paper that is extra glossy or almost three dimensional when viewed.

In 2010 Laura has been invited to exhibit and sell her fine art photographs at the Vandalia Gathering in May; Mountain State Arts and Crafts Fair in Ripley in July; Art in the Park in June and September; the River Arts Show in Charleston in December.
