About Lauri Novak
As a young girl, I was fortunate to travel not only the United States but also overseas as I grew older. Being exposed to the diversity in cultures and lifestyles from an early age instilled in me a curiosity and appreciation for the differences I experienced. Photography became a natural outlet for me to capture and
EXPRESS
this amazing new world, and as I honed my skills with a camera, I cultivated my photographic vision. Photography soon became much more than simply taking pictures. It became my
JOY.
So much so that, even now, I see the world in photographs.
As a photographer my goal is twofold: 1) to provide my clients with a truly unique depiction of their most cherished memories, and 2) to inspire other photographers to look at the world through new eyes, and pick up their cameras and
PLAY
with the world around them through the lens.
Elliot Erwitt summed it up best when he said, “To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…I’ve found it has little to do with the things you
SEE
and everything to do with the way you see them.”
This is my experience, philosophy, and aim. And if I can teach you to see the interesting in the ordinary, then I have accomplished what I set out to.
