Follow Friday: Guest Photographer Lauren Furlong

22 Nov

I’m proud to present Lauren Furlong, the creative genius behind Etsy’s newly opened Unfurled Images and fine art photographer.

Lauren Furlong lives in New Jersey and takes tons of photos with her fancy-pants camera. In her professional life, she edits photos for established photographers and currently works for one for National Geographic. Her idea of a perfect vacation is a quiet location in which she can wake before the ass-crack of dawn and observe the earth’s natural beauty with her fancy-pants camera. Other than photography, Lauren enjoys going to the movies, eating bacon, and wrangling mermaids.
You can visit her woefully out-of-date website and deviantArt  and see some cats sometimes on her Instagram feed. She has also launched Unfurled Images, an Etsy shop featuring her photos and digital manipulations on holiday cards.
