About Laura Herring

I’m from a small town, which I lovingly refer to as “The Sticks,” but I really am grateful I grew up there. I love photography and visual expression in general.

After graduating from the University of Missouri in May with a degree in photojournalism and a minor in French, I started my first job. I’m a journo for The World Company. I run an online news site for the small town of De Soto, Kan.

I love seeing new things and taking opportunities to see old things in new ways. I think this is why I love photography-every time I look through a camera I see something different. Curiosity may be what killed the cat, but I am a firm believer that satisfaction brought it back and that only by asking questions and seeking answers do we learn from life.

As well as photography I enjoy oil painting, knitting, crocheting and reading pretty much anything I can. I hope to never stop learning new hobbies or pursuing new dreams.
