Hello, I'm Fiona Laughton. People describe me as perpetually curious person, born with restless spirit as well as an insatiable need to find out what makes people and places tick. I turned to photography to make sense and meaning of my surroundings. Photography grounds me. I feel connected and calm when I'm walking the streets, camera in hand, trying to evoke mood from my environment or when I'm capturing authentic moments with my subjects.
I cut my teeth with live music photography, shooting a diverse range of artists including Leonard Cohen, Taylor Swift, Imogen Heap, Devandra Banhart, Wilco, Ben Kweller, Brian Wilson, Helmet, Unwritten Law, Mick Harvey, Best Coast, The Drones, You Am I, and countless more acts for Australia's largest media organisation.
These days, my main photography focus is on editorial work and environmental portraiture. My main objective with clients is to put them at ease, respect their vision and work collaboratively to achieve the desired results. Photography should be affordable and accessible to all, so my ideal clients are often fellow creatives, non-profits, small businesses and independent publications. My methodology is simple: Unfussy, relaxed and results-driven.
Born in Melbourne, Australia, I've been relocated to Berlin in 2013, where I also work as a freelance writer/editor covering the arts, culture, travel, and tech. Additionally, I work with small businesses, startups, and brands to create smart content that helps tell their story.
