Lauren J Marshall is a Melbourne based photographer committed to creating beautiful and emotive images. Using mainly natural light, Lauren’s candid documentary style truly captures the heart of the moment.
An internship at the Melbourne Herald Sun sparked Lauren’s passion for photojournalism. The idea of using photography to capture a person’s ‘story’ was ignited. Over time, this has developed into the focal point of Lauren’s business - LJM Photography.
Lauren generally eases into a shoot rather than whipping her camera out straight away (unless something dynamic is already happening). Lauren prefers to start by asking questions, getting to know her subjects and just watching how they work together. By listening and paying attention to her subject’s stories, they inevitably start showing her the (often small) things that matter to them: objects in their house, photographs, art, their garden, furnishings, a room. Together, these items help Lauren to build a connection into her subject’s lives. They relax; a glow fills their eyes, they’re comfortable with Lauren being there. From there, Lauren photographs them, interacting, revealing who they are and how they work together. For more information click HERE.
