About Rolf Larson

Rolf Larson - self-portraitI am a freelance photographer based in the Boston area. In 2017 I quit my day job as a structural engineer so that I could devote more time to photography. Since I made that decision, I have traveled to many amazing places in order to photograph them. I almost always have a camera and tripod with me when exploring new locations. I am grateful for the opportunity and challenge to see the beauty in these sites and to continue to develop my creative abilities.


Growing up in northern Minnesota gave me a love for the outdoors, which I think led me to my love of landscape photography. I also am fascinated by the challenges and opportunities of travel and street photography. And portrait photography is something that I have fallen in love with, partly because it gives me the opportunity to make connections with people that would not be otherwise possible. 

There are so many photographers that I have learned from. Leading the list are David Hobby: his strobist.com website opened my eyes to the possibilities of off-camera flash photography. Bobbi Lane’s & Lee Varis’ training classes and online courses have given me the confidence to believe that I could be successful at portrait photography.

I volunteer my time as a photographer to Family Promise, which is a community-based response to family homelessness in suburbs west of Boston.

Mostly, however, I simply enjoy continuing to shoot so that I keep on learning. I would love to hear from you if you have any questions, or just want to talk about photography.
