Photographer & Designer
I’m Laura Sills 👋🏼 and I’m a Brooklyn based photographer, graphic designer, and all-around operations nerd.
The short(ish) story? I’ve had a camera either in my hand or pointed at my face for as long as I can remember. My mom took photos and videos of everything in my childhood (her sports photos of my brothers and me are still some of the best I’ve ever seen) and I quickly realized that I have the same need to document as much as I can.
So I came to New York for the first time on a field trip in high school, took a ridiculous amount of pictures in four days, and decided that was where I belonged. I moved to the city shortly after college (on a bit of a whim, but hey, it worked) and found my way into the operations world where I realized my passion for helping to scale fast-growing, mission-driven startups. Currently, I’m the Director of Operations at Ziva Meditation where I help build the business through creating and developing online courses, streamlining operational processes, relentlessly improving the Ziva user experience, and expanding and empowering the customer support team.
My love for photography has never changed, but I have really started to hone my skills with a digital camera in the last few years (I learned on 35mm). This site will be home to all of my work and experimentation in the coming years as I continue to relentlessly wander around the city that I’ve called home for 8 years and yet somehow still always feels new.
