About

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 many years I established Lauren Irving Photography in 2010. This has lead me to 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 interesting destinations both locally and internationally. I have covered poetry slams, ballet productions, charity sport events and was honoured to be a guest speaker at the 2014 Arts Festival at University Peterborough. I have also been involved in workshops for PRC and local community interest company BeatThis.

 

Recently I have had the honour of being a judge for the ‘rethinkyourmind’ team, piloting the PRC Yellow Book competition aiming to raising awareness of mental health. It was also a great pleasure to provide coverage for the 2016 graduation ceremony of students of the University Centre Peterborough. For Aspirations week I was privileged to be asked to talk about my work and offer advice to pupils of Dogsthorpe Academy.

 

I believe a photograph can be so much more than an image. It can be a portal in time. It can expand perceptions. So much can be portrayed in the tiny fraction of time that is recorded, instantly capturing undiluted visual honesty.
