Laura Mate an accomplished photographer and stylist, recently returned to her Yorkshire roots after spending 10 years in Paris, France shooting for editorials such as Elle Decoration and promoting brands from Givenchy to small independents.
Laura studied Art foundation in Bradford and went on to complete a photography HND in Leeds, before moving to assist photographers in London.
Laura's fresh, vibrant and playful style lends her the ability to create, style and shoot editorial or high end commercial product shots with technically challenging post-production.
"I love the eclectic mix that my job offers, and always feel so fortunate to work with such a variety of people and projects. I'm currently photographing and helping hair and beauty salons, interior and vintage boutiques, jewellery and craft suppliers, the food and drink industry and shooting for local magazines.
I think companies are more understanding of the importance of their online and social media presence, and how a set of images can really entice their prospective customers. I advise and shoot what images i think will best show them off and set them apart from other businesses."
