Greetings Photoion students and photography fans. We’ve got a special treat for you today. As you know, we love celebrating our students and showing off their amazing work, and from time to time we like to highlight a particular student and give an in-depth look at their work and speak to them about how they got to where they are today.

Today we’re highlighting the work of Laura Visinskaite, who has joined us for our advanced course, studio lighting, street photography, photoshop, and product photography workshops.

Laura says she has always loved photography and the art form, but it wasn’t until around three years ago that she started to take photography seriously as something she could be passionate about.

Laura’s favourite aspect of photography is being able to capture people and their lives. She says that she adores being able to document moments that are special to her subjects.

About two years ago Laura met Ion and attended her first Photoion course on advanced photography. When asked what it was like meeting and working with Ion for the first time, Laura said;

“He is an experienced, professional photographer who works full time and has loads of knowledge and experience to share on the courses. He is a great teacher and can explain and demonstrate sometimes tricky subjects clearly and practically.”

Laura took advantage of Photoion’s unlimited after-course support to continue to refine her craft and get tips and suggestions from Ion, and she eventually came back to study studio lighting, street photography, Photoshop, and product photography workshops with Photoion.

Laura says that photography is a way for her to express herself creatively, and find the beauty in the mundane.

“I see everything as beautiful no matter how ordinary it is. Photography connects us to the real world in the most unique way.”

We’re so proud of Laura and what she has achieved, and we are so glad she decided to take this journey with our school and share her results with us, and now with you!
