Hi, I'm Lara

Lara Macgregor

Kia Ora!
I’m a film and theatre stills photographer based in the South Island of New Zealand, able to travel nationally and internationally.
Storytelling has been my work life focus for over 25 years and, in recent times, I have combined my love of directing, actors and photography by embracing the film stills world.
After graduating Nicola Dove’s Film Stills Academy, I’m more passionate than ever to collaborate with fellow artists, to capture dynamic performances, and behind-the-scenes moments of magic.

My Bio

I began taking photographs for the love of it while studying acting in New York City in the 90’s. I worked for ten years as an actor in the U.S, then completed a Post-Graduate Diploma in Directing from The National Institute of Dramatic Art in Sydney and went on to direct over 40 productions throughout America, Australia and New Zealand.
In 2009, I was appointed Associate Artistic Director at The Court Theatre in Christchurch, and in 2010 became Artistic Director at Fortune Theatre in Dunedin. Since 2015 I have been freelancing across all platforms as a photographer, director, actor and performance coach.
Throughout my working life in the Performing Arts industry, my foray into photography has provided me with another joyous expression of story-telling.

Highlights from Lara

Every time I step onto a set to take stills I learn more and more – how to look for the moments that best reflect the story, how to stay out of everyone’s way while doing that, how to capture great eyelines without getting in the actors’ eyeline, how to stay ahead of what’s happening in a moment and use every moment as an opportunity. It’s so stimulating and joyous it becomes addictive.

Other photographic projects I’ve been involved with:
Otago Museum: Full Ste(a)m Ahead – 100 Women, 100 Words…Infinite Possibilities (Photographer)
Personal Photography Project: Six Degrees of Inspiration: NZ’s Unsung Heroes (CNZ Funded)
