Claire is a photographer, fine artist & creative director from Los Angeles.
Hello! I’m Claire, a Los Angeles native with a passion for storytelling, styling and bright colors. I’ve been an artist my entire life, first discovering my love of photography at 13 when I was given a 35mm film camera. Since then I’ve been refining my skills through formal education, personal practice and professional experience.
COMMERCIAL WORK: My specialty lies in creating branded content for your target audience that is both beautiful and strategic. I’m a one stop shop for custom social strategy, creative direction and production. I have seven years of proffesional experience producing and art directing photoshoots for my client’s branding and social media needs. From creative concepts to execution, I'm here to help your brand look amazing and stay ahead of social trends.
FINE ART: While creating my personal work I strive to create images that are an extension of the viewer’s imagination. My work is often informed by art history, folklore, literature, and legend. Each image is intended to be haunting yet familiar. My series are often mysterious and emblematic so that viewers fill the gaps in each story with their own projections. Thematically I’m drawn to ritualistic behavior, the occult, the supernatural, mythology, and the female gaze. I’m also drawn to framing nature in a romantic context to show the simultaneous beauty and destructive power of its elements. I seek out and travel to sites that are outside my viewer’s normal experience. Whether it’s sand dunes in Death Valley or a druid temple in England’s countryside, I attempt to yank my viewer out of their every day reality and into a world of wonder and discomfort. American Photo Magazine called my early career ‘something of a fairy tale". I strive to produce photographs that evoke that same sense of wonder and delight. The process of bringing an idea into the physical world makes me tick. I want to push the boundaries of photography as a storytelling medium.
When I'm not creating you'll likely find me swing dancing, day dreaming about swing dancing, or having a picnic somewhere pretty. If you’d like to collaborate, commission work or have a heart to heart, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
