Many of us believe that success comes with age. According to these two talents Lara Jade and Joey L, however, success comes from hard work, sleepless nights, constant networking, and an incredible passion for your craft. Besides, these two have a fantastic and unbelievably successful portfolio to prove that age holds no barriers. While both Lara and Joey started their careers in their early teens, they have now put big names under their belt in each of their respective fields.
LARA JADE is an internationally acclaimed fashion, portrait and commercial photographer. Lara’s most compelling quality is the ability to color her images with strong elements of romanticism, fantasy and a hint of darkness. Her unique style has defined her work since picking up her first camera at the age of fifteen, when she first started experimenting with self-portraiture and themes of fantasy which she continues to develop and refine today. At only seventeen Lara started 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 high demand for her work. Lara’s momentum has continued to build, with industry leading brands and well known fashion and photography magazines worldwide.
JOEY L is a Canadian-born photographer and director currently based in New York City. His big named clients are impressive, but his personal work exemplifies a rare and unique focus on photojournalism.
These two powerhouses have decided to come together for a educational “shoot out” that has been in the making for 2 years. Amidst their busy schedule of clients and travel, they put together an all encompassing “workshop on a disc”. Photoshop, challenges, street photography, editorial, studio…seems pretty packed. Plus, some killer illustrations from Sam Spratt Illustrations. To read more about their recent DVD launch, go HERE.
