Interview with: Laura Wakelam

Company Name: Laura Wakelam Photography


Location / Coverage: UK, Australia and the world

How did your business get started and who works at Laura Wakelam Photography?

I started my photography business when I first moved to the UK. My background is in marketing, finding myself in a corporate role just outside of London which gave little scope for creativity. I wanted to do something that really challenged me creatively. A free ad on gumtree, conversations over a gin and tonic, and a couple of wedding bookings later, I found myself irrevocably hooked!

Had you always wanted to be a photographer?

Not consciously, but looking back on my childhood there were tell-tale signs from an early age that my future career would be directed towards some artistic pursuit. I’ve always had a slightly eclectic interest in collecting and cataloguing pictures… in my childhood this was translated into an avid sticker, stamp and clip art collection, dutifully catalogued like a Lightroom library. As time passed and my travel experiences and geography broadened, these disciplines and interests evolved to my own photo memories, printed archives and digital image libraries.

Can you remember how old you were when you took your first picture? What was it of?

I do. I was six years old and I borrowed my father’s old analogue camera for a school excursion to the Abel Tasman cruise ship which, at the time, was docked in the Port Melbourne harbour. From memory I took a film roll of 24 exposures on the day, but the image that I remember most poignantly is one that I took of a friend called Bridie who had the most amazing white-blonde hair. I think it may have even been an accidental exposure, but somehow I captured this perfect instant where wind and sand collided into a very dramatic and unrehearsed scene that even at six years old I was able to appreciate as having a very true and honest quality. I assume I took some photos of the cruise liner (aka ‘feature’) as well, but I honestly can’t remember!
