Chasing Light: Celebrating Laura McIlveen

Laura McIlveen Northern Ireland Photography Makers House Bushmills

Based on the stunning North Coast, Laura has been a photographer for the last seven years specialising in landscape and commercial photography and is also a resident maker in our top floor creative hub, Makers House. 


In August 2019, Laura joined as a young start-up business and just two years later, Laura was able to ditch her hiking boots for high heels and attend the Causeway Chamber Awards where she was awarded ‘Best Young Person in Business 2021’.

From starting her business on a small scale at a market in Ballintoy to becoming a successful award-winning businesswoman, everyone at The Designerie & Makers House couldn’t be more proud of Laura and her talent.

With every image, Laura hopes to tell a story, evoke emotion and showcase the raw beauty of the locations she photographs. Whether it’s Murlough Bay, Whiterocks Beach or the Giant’s Causeway, Laura’s photography encapsulates bold, dynamic, modern, and unique imagery and of course she always chases light.

Laura has an exciting new collection in store now, call in and see it for yourself...
