Laura is a seasoned freelance producer, having worked in both video and commercial production since 1997. She founded Pallet23 in 2013 to fill a need in the region for a blank “palette” – open, flexible space for shoots and creative endeavors. That concept has since evolved into Garage on York, where she manages day-to-day operations & bookings, and still makes time for freelance producing when her schedule allows.
After leaving the corporate world in 2014, Monica joined her husband in managing day to day operations at their business – studio821, rental studio’s for the photography and videography industry including beauty and bridal services.
She can often be found assisting creatives by giving studio tours, answering inquires and taking care of behind the scenes business operations while also assisting at Garage on York.
