The holidays are right around the corner and we couldn't be more excited to offer Photo Holiday Cards here at Love vs Design. We have created a Holiday collection in a variety of styles, like modern, vintage, simple and whimsical.
All of our Holiday card designs can be customized with your own photo. For the Holiday card templates on our website, we used the photos from our favorite photographers. Laura Izumikawa is one of these photographers. She grew up in Tokyo and is now living in Orange County, California.
We asked Laura a few questions to get to know her a bit better.
How would you describe your photography style?
I think the way I shoot changes every time, with every person and subject as I draw unique inspiration and experiences with my subjects. My goal is to capture a story at the end of the day.
What do you currently do for a living?
I am a lifestyle photographer, recently adding fashion to the mix.
Which photographers do you admire? Who / what influences you?
James Nachtwey was the reason I fell in love with photography. I am forever in awe of his work. Currently in love with "Mirai-chan", by Kotori Kawashima. Bleubird - I love her life and stalk her constantly.
What’s your favorite camera to shoot with?
Borrowed a Hasselblad once and I can't stop thinking about it. "Oh yes, she will be mine."
What do you enjoy the most about photography?
I love that photography can change me as a person as it constantly challenges me to reach outside my comfort zone and makes me want to see things in a totally different light. My favorite thing to shoot is my time traveling away from home. I love documenting new experiences and memories.
