Lara Furst

Creative Photographer

I am a Brisbane based creative who believes that everyone has a story. I am endlessly fascinated with discovering what makes people unique and finding things that we have in common.

Photography is an amazing tool that doesn’t need language in order to help people communicate. It’s one of the many reasons that I love it!

I studied psychology as a fresh high school graduate and then later picked up a camera when I brithed my son. It’s a combination that helps me communicate with humans and celebrate our strengths together.
