Laurie Klein began her love affair with infrared photography as a bio-medical photography student at Rochester Institute of Technology.
She found her passion for infrared landscapes and the female form after studying infrared techniques with Ansel Adams. After receiving her MFA from Ohio University she taught college, opened a gallery and portrait studio, and never looked back.
Laurie is recognized worldwide for photographing in the infrared spectrum. A gifted photo educator for over 30 years, Laurie lectures and teaches infrared workshops at Santa Fe Photographic Workshops and MaineMedia, as well as private workshops all over the world. Her infrared photographs are in the collections of galleries and museums worldwide.
She is the co-author with her son Kyle Klein of Infrared Photography: Artistic Techniques for Brilliant Photography and the author of Photographing the Female Form with Digital Infrared and Hand Coloring Black and White Photography. She has been sponsored by Fuji Film, Kodak, Rubbermaid, Prismacolor, DSI, White House Color Lab, Lensbaby, Macphun and Kolari Vision.
