Laura Casner has over 10 years experience working as a commercial photographer in NYC and LA. She has a diverse portfolio that includes large advertising campaigns, social media content, and live events for clientele in a variety of industries, though she specializes in photography with an action- oriented lifestyle feel.
In 2020, eager to leave city life behind, Laura joined the GearLab team and moved to the outdoor wonderland that is Lake Tahoe. She loves to travel but has equally enjoyed exploring her new home through lots of Type II fun, like trail running, multi-day backpacking, paddleboarding, skiing, and snowshoeing. If she's not out adventuring you can find her relaxing somewhere outside, refueling with all the baked goods and a nice bottle of wine.
