A photograph can be so much more than an image. It can be a portal in time. It can recall memories. It can expand perceptions. It can record milestones. It can be thought provoking. So much can be portrayed in the tiny fraction of time that is recorded. This instant capturing of undiluted visual honesty is what makes me love this medium.
As a photographer I create images in a relaxed, natural style and this reportage fashion of photography lends itself to special events such as engagements, weddings and civil partnerships, christenings, as well as family portraits. My passion for capturing the beauty in everyday life means that my photography does not need to be bound to any specific genre and I embrace any opportunity I have to use my skills.
After taking commissions for several years I established Lauren Irving Photography in 2010. This has taken me on many great adventures, working with poets, acclaimed artists, entertainers, BSL interpreters, creative collectives, and many other companies ranging from local businesses to global firms. My work has taken me to many stunning destinations both locally and internationally.
From poetry slams to charity sport events, ballet productions to local community workshops, I genuinely love what I do and put my heart and soul into capturing the right image.
That’s my story. I would be honored if you let me capture yours.
I am passionate about running a successful business while still making a conscious effort to minimise the ecological impact. For location shoots I aim to travel sustainably, I strive to source suppliers who can offer albums using sustainable materials, and aim to work with businesses and clients who's environmental values align with my own.
