Laura Tillinghast: A Multi-Talented Go-Getter
In addition to shooting stunning portraiture and conducting first rate lighting workshops, Pro Showcase Laura Tillinghast is also a pretty good baker. We know this because she just sent us a box of her delicious homemade cookies this week. "I love to bake and do a lot of it when I am not shooting," she admits. We size her up as a "pretty good" baker because clearly, she doesn't have a lot of down time with her photography.
In early June of this year, we discovered Laura's work in Profesional Photographer magazine and the fact that she shoots with Photoflex equipment. We approached her on joining our Pro Showcase lineup and in her humble and enthusiastic way, she accepted. We happened to have a slot open up for July (we showcase three pros a month) and within a week's time, she was able to get us the necessary contents to build her page. She doesn't mess around.
In a subsequent conversation, she mentioned that she was holding some lighting workshops and was wondering whether we might be able to help out promoting them, as well as loaning her some of our lighting equipment. We agreed and just asked if she could send us some imagery from the workshop. Once again, she delivered.
Here's her own post of the workshop.
As with so many of our Pro Showcase photographers, Laura is a pleasure to work with and we are grateful to have her on board! She'll be holding another lighting workshop in two weeks (August 18th) and if there's any space left and you can make it, we highly recommend that you do! Here are the details:
