Louisa grew up among the rolling fields and the raw beautiful beaches of Devon and Cornwall in England. Far off lands beckoned. She undertook a solo venture along the pacific side of Central America with a surfboard under one arm and a camera over the other shoulder. A way down the path, she met her husband whilst surfing and moved to California. Louisa is predominantly self-taught. She has broadened and refined her creative approach through attending Los Angeles Center of Photography with respected photographers such as Thomas Alleman, Just Loomis and Hugh Kretsmer.
