Nat in my non-binary portrait series ✨ been taking a hiatus from shooting this series after my exhibition in Berlin but looking forward to shooting for it again when I get back from vacation! Speaking of which, I'll be in BC for a few weeks, if anyone wants to book a shoot/collaborate/hang while I'm there let me know!! I'll be mostly on around Victoria/Vancouver island (Nanaimo, tofino) πŸ’“

Hi everyone! Just thought I'd make an intro post because I've never made one on here and since I got a bunch of new followers yesterday it seems like good timing β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ My name is Laurence, I'm 24 and I live in Montreal (TiohtiΓ :ke - unceced territory). I've been doing photography for about 10 years, and it's my full time job. I'm a triple Gemini and idk exactly what that says about me but I just like saying it a lot, and I've always wished I had a twin!! In my free time I mostly nap, watch a lot of trash tv (lately been on an hgtv binge), listen to pop music and eat noodles. I'm really not a morning person. I like pink and orange the most. I have a lot of anxiety from past traumas, as well as ADHD. I tend to always be working on a million projects at once. I like one on one interactions more than large social gatherings. I care a lot about my friends, about supporting the people I love. I had a severe chronic illness for most of my life up until a couple of years ago (it's stable/in remission now) and I think that shaped me a lot because I spent a lot of time alone growing up, and had to learn to find ways to keep myself entertained (like photography), and reasons to survive. I'm fostering the most special sphinx cat right now so you'll probably a lot of her in my stories!! Putting myself out there is really scary to me so here's that, feel free to introduce yourself in the comments too if you want!!
I shot some Polaroids for the first time literally in years when I was in Berlin last week ☁️ throwback to my old ~dreamy~ photo days I guess ☁️
Portrait of Flora in April πŸŒΌπŸ’› // I'm back in Canada for the summer and ready to work! I rarely make these kinds of posts because existing as an ~artist but also as a freelance photographer who needs to make a living is confusing at times but I thought I'd put it out there : I live in Montreal and have a studio space here but am also happy to travel to Toronto any time for shoots/projects :) I have 10 years of experience as a photographer working with brands, magazines, actors, musicians/bands, designers, etc doing work that ranges from still life, conceptual, portraiture, headshots, lookbooks, e-commerce/social media content, etc. I also have a lot of experience doing artistic direction, project coordination and curation on various editorial and exhibition projects and would love to do more of this kind of work. I am represented as a director by @adolescentcontent and am always looking to keep building my reel/do more video projects so I am available for that as well ~ Additionally, I have a lot of prints available on society6 and am happy to make custom/signed prints any time, just message or email me at laurencephilomenephoto(at)gmail.com // If you'd like to work with me, book a photo session at any point or know of jobs that you think I'd be a good fit for please don't hesitate to contact me! I didn't get the funding I thought I'd receive for my exhibition so I need to make some money back. If you like my work and want me to be able to keep producing it any support is truly appreciated πŸ’— & happy to do sliding scale for marginalized folks always πŸ’— If you read all of this thank you lol hope u have a good day!!!
