About Lauren Farmer, Photographer and Polar Expedition Leader
A unique slate of life experiences first brought Lauren to the Arctic, guiding expeditions across the northern latitudes as a photographer and expedition leader.
Lauren was born in Lismore, Australia, but spent her formative years in the midwest of the United States. An interest in the entertainment industry led her to study in Los Angeles and she ultimately spent a decade working in television marketing in New York City. From here, an enthusiasm for storytelling led to a successful career as a published travel and portrait photographer.
It was in this stage of life that she was introduced to the polar regions, and she was hooked almost immediately.
