Photographer, Consultant, and Mother in Olympia, Washington
Hi, I'm LaRae Lobdell and am an environmental portrait photographer, host, and instructor with more than 20 years of experience photographing, directing, producing exhibits, and speaking in the photography industry.
My curriculum vitae includes 21 photography exhibits of my own work, the curation of 15 exhibits for other artists’ and museums, the production of 13 private and community events, and two year’s experience as director of one of Seattle’s largest art walks. My images have been published in The Huffington Post, Broadway World, Yale University Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine, and even aired on the Colbert Report.
My position as lead host for online educational giants such as CreativeLive and Polaroid University gave me the unique opportunity as one of an elite group of professionals to connect a live global audience to top renowned professionals in photography, video, design, business, audio, music, software design, productivity, and lifestyle.
I'm currently the Culture Liaison for BlackRapid, facilitating close working relationships between influencers and organizations for promotional sales and marketing.
Grateful my new position allows me to be a stay-at-home mom while balancing a rewarding career in the photography industry, I'm a Seattle gal via Miami now calling the Pacific Northwest my home once again and enjoys a quiet life with my daughter.
