Laurence Steyt decided to study photography at the age of 16. Since the very beginning she was drawn to fashion photography; the elegance, sensuality, movement, and ever-changing styles and ideas contained in magazine pictures were a big appeal.
After her studies she moved to Paris where she assisted a number of well-known photographers including Tyen, Stratis & Beva, Takay and David Vasiljevic, gaining a huge amount of professional experience and advice along the way. During this period she also met her current photography partner Luis Peña, with whom she began frequently collaborating on a wide range of co-authored work.
Out of the pair's complementary styles SteytPeña was born. Laurence and Luis have been shooting together for almost three years now, creating a fresh and free approach that adds flavour to the detail and a globally conceptual feel. Their skilled lighting techniques and storytelling habits, combined with an ability to understand clients' needs, ensures the creation of any desired environment.
Laurence Steyt won the Weekend Photo Award in October 2010. Visit the website for more information.
