Welcome to my photography website. I hope you enjoy the images displayed here as much as I enjoyed shooting them, since to me, photography isn’t just a job, it’s one of my greatest passions.

My goal here is to show you the variety of work and art that I’m capable of doing, and hope that it inspires new ways of seeing things and people. I feel that the quote “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” is almost true, because when it comes to quality photography all the beholders agree.

Since there’s a time for talking and a time for exploring, I wish you a nice ride through my albums and hope that you’re having a wonderful day or night…

After spending his childhood traveling throughout Europe with his parents and learning the art of photography with his father and very talented photographer, Dan Kramer, Laurent settled in Switzerland in his late teen years.

He then worked as a professional lifeguard, in recreational boating, construction, private security, and also spent twelve years enforcing the law as a police officer.

In 2006 he obtained permanent residency in the United States and decided to resign from his police work in order to join his parents whom had migrated to San Diego in the late 90’s.

Since his relocation, Laurent Kramer has spent most of his time bringing live music, people, plants, animals, and objects to life.
