About 14 years ago I started as a Graphic Design-intern at “Funbox”, a publication covering extreme sports and lifestyle, which in 2006 evolved into “Salt Magazine”. It turned out that I easily find or pick up the best images with the stories our editors have in mind, so my job naturally became more and more about image editing than the design job that I went to school for. Photography is very important in my job. You can have the best writers and stories, but an image still says more than a thousand words.
Her biggest piece of advice: “Just don’t take the shot that has already been shot a thousand times before.”
Tips and tricks from Laura: "A great photo needs to be ‘just right’. I can’t just name one thing. The composition, the light, the focus should be the best for the subject that you are photographing. You can take 100 pictures of a scene and have 95 technically good photos, some crappy ones, but just 1 might turn out to be perfect. I think that luck and timing add a great deal to make a great photo."
