Lara Jade is a fashion and advertising photographer from England who currently resides in New York City. She was fortunate enough to chance upon photography at the age of fifteen, taking early fortes in self-portraiture and fine art photography. At only seventeen, she decided to start her own business - Lara Jade Photography. Beginning by taking on small clients, she was soon able to demonstrate a strong understanding of how to develop the commercial side of her business to adequately deal with the growing demand for her work. Lara's momentum has continued to build; she is now successfully working within the fashion and advertising industry whilst also developing her personal portfolio and teaching workshops worldwide.
She is influenced by elements of influential style, film noir and the old masters in painting and photography. Her most compelling quality is her ability to colour her images with strong elements of romanticism and fantasy while creating the sense of an underlying narrative.
Lara's clientele include Goldsmiths Jewellery, Schwarzkopf, Sony Music, Random House, Harper Collins, ELLE US, The Observer and 125 Magazine. Lara was also the winner of the Public Choice Award at the 2009 AOP Open Awards and has been fortunate enough to receive a number of sponsorships including Canon, Bowens Lighting & Datacolor.
