Lawrie Margrave

Lawrie Margrave began photographing at the age of three when given an old Kodak camera by her grandfather. A native Californian from Los Angeles, she graduated from Marlborough School and attended the University of Arizona. In her early thirties she attended California Institute of the Arts and formally studied photography while coaching girls tennis at William S. Hart High School. Although she is interested in all aspects of photography, she has been an event photographer specializing in English and Western horse shows since 1997. Her images can be viewed on her web site.
“So often one hears the word ‘capture’ to describe how a photograph is made;
I prefer to think in terms of ‘freeing’ what I see and adding a new facet for contemplation.
The use of color, strong subject matter, dramatic light and unusual framing all go into the wonderful mix to become another way of looking at the world. I carry this approach with me am whether I am photographing a large event, a child playing or a simple flower.
Lawrie and her husband- Frank have been married for twenty-eight years and together, they have raised three children.
