I’m Laurie Young, and I’m from London, yup a Londoner!

I consider myself to be a technologist, entrepreneur and just arty enough to sound pretentious. My murky past includes a masters degree in physics and a doctorate in supercomputing, so I know a thing or two about hardcore science and academia too.

Computing & Technology

I’ve worked for internet based tech companies most of my working life. These days I’m most interested in how to use all these gadgets and bits of software to improve business and the society we live in than I am in the actual tech.

Photography

Photography is the perfect path from tech to art. There are more gadgets (cameras, lenses, meters, strobes and so on) than you can shake a stick at, but at the end of the day its the pursuit of the artistic image that makes it all worth while.

Dancing

I love dance. There is a special place in my heart for latin american dancing, but I love any form of dance when its done with dedication, and passion. What the human body can do with enough training, and how to use that to tell a story is mind blowing.

For over 10 years I’ve been taking photos. Mostly I work on personal projects but I’ve had photos published in national titles like Time Out, and The Times. You can check out my online portfolio here. My first book, “Being a photographer” is coming out soon.

Frozen Event

My attempt to disrupt the world of dance competition photography. Frozen Event connects dance photographers with their customers and gives the photographers a place to market and sell their photos.
