Lara (Weatherly) Tomov, Director/Camera

My role is to observe in order to share experience, educate, and communicate the stories that advance a positive world. With a focus on the environment, human impact, and social action, I am happy to put myself into one's footprints or paw-prints in order to truthfully convey a story to create change.

From growing up in the mountains of Montana, to living in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles, to experiencing cultures and terrains around the world, I have always been hungry to put myself into new situations with my camera; whether it is rappelling down a cliff, diving with sharks, or maneuvering through a crowded spice market.
