I was fortunate to have Lara on board as a set photographer for my short ‘Milk’ – a film made by small team in a remote location in Dunedin. It was important to me that we capture not just the stills required for the marketing of the film, but also some of the essence of the place we were in, the crew at work and the incredible attention to detail that was present in everything from set design to costumes. Lara was such an asset to our team. Because of her on-set experience as an actor, she was able to shoot intimate moments without ever being obtrusive with the camera. The photographs she delivered were not only beautiful, but they felt very true to the spirit of the film. Her eye for detail, her ability to make a subject feel totally at ease and her incredibly perceptive nature make her the ideal film stills photographer.
