124 Lauren Naylor talks nude photography from a female perspective and the importance of balancing creative vs paid projects

Lauren is a photographer & creative director that uses unique set design and cinematic motifs to create expressive visual stories

Rick met Lauren when she was working an office job in NYC in the marketing department of a reputable photography company. 5 years later, she’s living in Los Angeles working as a freelance photographer with no intentions on going back to the 9­5 life.

Lauren and Rick discuss the creativity involved in Lauren’s work, and the delicate, sometimes headache-­inducing balance between creative and (mundane) paid work that’s vital if you’re a freelance photographer. They talk about capturing emotion vs getting the perfect technical shot, and
the difference between tasteful nude photography and…not­-so-­tasteful. They also chat about Lauren’s side projects— including music, her production studio along side art director Claire Quest called Nightdove Studio, and Supervirgo— LA’s community for female creatives.
