The Storytellers

Laura {words by Alexandra}

Meet Laura - Manager + co-creative
Laura is also passionate about storytelling. She’s a wordsmith by trade with qualifications in Broadcast Journalism (minoring in Film & Television) and International Relations from Bond University.
Laura is deeply passionate about social justice and believes we can make a difference in this world. So while collaborating on MLM projects she also works in public policy - with the bulk of her experience in social policy and governance. Most recently she took up a Senior Campaigns Advisor role - a promotion which also saw her move from Canberra to Melbourne.
Pre-policy advising days she worked in marketing and communications as a fresh faced University grad - designing advertisements and writing articles for a private company and then a not-for-profit.
Laura is the go-to person for producing and writing the stories we curate.

The Art of Storytelling

Photojournalism is key to MLM’s philosophy. We pride ourselves on capturing real moments as they naturally unfold, working with natural light.


The Market Lane Media Difference

Five per cent of MLM’s profit from wedding shoots funds ‘storytelling kits’ for small to medium size NGOs that work with vulnerable communities.

A storytelling kit costs $1000, and contains a camera, tripod and training manual that has been purposefully developed to provide an ‘introduction to videography’ to achieve social development outcomes.

MLM is keen to support businesses and organisations with a charitable purpose through offering discounts on corporate media services. Get in touch to find to out how we could support your organisation’s cause.


The Power of Storytelling

MLM is passionate about telling stories for two main reasons:

1. Storytelling is a powerful tool to connect with others. Stories transcend generations and cultures. A story can inspire and influence. It can build your personal or professional brand. It can capture a moment for all time.

2. Storytelling is a powerful tool to achieve social progress. Access to media to share information and tell stories has shaped history. It has increased awareness of social issues and given voices to the most vulnerable. This is why a portion of all our profits go towards funding ‘story telling’ kits for NGOs and small organisations working with vulnerable communities in the Philippines.
