Salem, SC photographer, Laurie Metzger has been involved in various types of
photography for over 30 years. Originally an industrial photographer, Laurie
opened a portrait studio in 1994 and specialized in children and family
photography winning numerous awards, including the Professional
Photographers of North Carolina’s (PPNC)Photographer of the Year award.
Taking time off to raise her children, Laurie recently reentered the photography
world and began photographing sunrises at Lake Keowee. When the Covid
pandemic hit, this became a daily passion and she posts a photograph every day
of the sunrise, flowers, birds, or waterfalls highlighting the beauty of Lake
Keowee and the Upstate of South Carolina.
Reflections often play a part in Laurie’s photographs as does color. Her artistry
can be seen in her flower and bird photographs as they are reimagined as a
painted canvas. Laurie’s work is displayed on aluminum metal and under acrylic
