My name is Laura Stump and I have been interested in photography ever since I got a Kodak camera in the 4th grade and took a camera course through 4H. I've always enjoyed trying to capture an interesting photo, but I didn't get serious about it until several years ago when I got a DSLR camera and started being able to edit photos on my computer.
My main occupation is teacher--I've taught French in middle school, high school and at the university level. I've had the good fortune to be able to travel, both on my own and with students, which has given me many great photo opportunities. I also live in a gorgeous place, the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, and if I never got to travel anywhere again, I would still have plenty to photograph here!
I started getting more serious about photography more recently and have started participating in arts and crafts shows. I sell matted and framed photos, notecards and coasters with my photos. For coasters, please visit my Facebook page or my Etsy shop. You can also follow me on Instagram.
