Photographer Brittany McLaren started out as a writer, so it’s no surprise storytelling is at the heart of her photography. She has been featured by Resource Magazine Online as their photographer of the week with an interview and a selection of her images.
Brittany didn’t realize photography was her calling until she took a black and white darkroom course as an elective in college. She soon realized she was having a lot more fun shooting than she was pursuing a writing career. A new career path was calling.
Her work is most often described as “quirky.” With project names like “Taxidermy Love” and “Meet the Quirkies,” even she’ll agree that’s a pretty accurate description. She says, “I like to examine human nature, poke fun at it, comment on stereotypes, and subvert them.” Her portraiture style fits her concept — it’s poppy, fun, lighthearted — and she uses Profoto gear to get it.
