i believe in capturing a moment in time where you and your surroundings are simply "happening" - play, family, work, whatever - even if we are in a studio setting, my favorite second is the one where you're not looking....i especially love photographing athletes in their "zone", the bodybuilder's first show, or the moment they have won their placement onstage, the football player consoling a teammate, the coach reacting in real time.
i love the art of finding someone's "moment" - when someone looks at your photo and says, "ahhhh there you are!"
i am on the shy side, so shooting has always been a great hand for me to "hold" in social situations....i laugh loudly and occasionally snort if something is REALLY funny. i love autumn and i dig the sound of laughter and dogs barking. when i am not taking pictures i am hanging out with my husband, gardening, reading a good book or playing with my dogs.
my name is lara gale and i am madly in love with my husband, my puppies, coffee, raw oysters, rain and a good red wine.
i once had a beautiful, but slightly grumpy ibizan hound (called "beezers" in some circles)named georgia, who was my personal mascot and the inspiration behind my work and the whole "angrybeezer" thing....
