SEAD Gallery and Bookshop is excited to welcome photographer Laura Pasket for a pop-up show during April’s First Friday event. Join us from 6-9 PM for the opening of “Through My Lens”.
Laura is a self-taught photographer who travels all around Texas and Illinois, photographing wildlife as a hobby. She captures wildlife, floral, macros, and landscape, with an emphasis on birds. She enjoys the added element of tracking down birds, identifying them, and photographing them. Her mission is to go beyond the knowledge of exposure, pixels, and technology and simply find the beauty in nature, wildlife, and ranch life. She always strives to find and photograph subjects in their own habitats, putting the wildlife first, without disturbing their natural behaviors and practices. Her work stands out because of the way she works with light and the composition of her subjects.
As a child, Laura picked up her love for photography from her dad. He would let her use his cameras on family vacations in the western US, from Yellowstone and Rocky Mountain National Park to all over Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana. As her parents sat in the front seat of the car picking the next place to explore, Laura would take photos from the back. Through capturing the nature and wildlife on these trips, Laura’s future as a photographer was born.
As she grew older and craved an artistic outlet, Laura kept returning to photography as a hobby. Now that she is retired, she focuses on her photography by attending classes all over Texas, and she also finds joy in helping others as they begin their photography journey.
Laura is a noted photographer and a member of NANPA, Texas PPA, Brazos Valley Art League, and Audubon Society. She is also currently on the Board of the Brazos Valley Photo Club.
We hope to see you at the opening of “Through My Lens” on April 6th from 6-9 PM.
