I’m born and raised in Africa. I studied product design but I have a big interest in photography and videography. I moved to London five years ago to follow job opportunities. I shot for magazine and a lot of other things, making up my job as a photographer and I became really passionate towards it.
.
To me photography is like helping people in someway. I believe that people are pretty as they are. I want to show the people we don’t need fake or artificial stuff to make us proud of our body or ourselves. I want to give them the confident they deserve because they already pretty as they are.
.
Recently I would say my style is moving towards more real life photography. Even if I shoot swimwear I want my picture to look more real. When the model were posing too much I often would say ‘no don’t pose’. I just want when people see my picture they feel like it’s a normal life. That’s why I’m moving to analog picture more and more.

I was born in ex-Ukraine. It was USSR before Russia. It was in 1987. I was born in the territory of Ukraine so I can speak Ukrainian language and Russian Language. I have lived there till I was thirty years old. Then I moved to Thailand three years ago and somehow I ended here in Bali. I think Bali chose me to be here.

I have experienced a lot of things with money and relationships. Here I met a lot of people who helped me to understand something inside of me. Some bad things about me, the person I was. Being in Bali helped me to understand that and accept who I am.

So for now, I’m more artistic than before. I am an artistic photographer. I spent a lot of energy in different ways and styles but not specific into one small direction. I know how to make artistic photos. To make creative photos with nice compositions. I combine a lot of styles. I also like to paint, climb, and drive around the islands.

My whole life I was thinking with one side of my brain. I think I always been creative but I was not really stimulated in that field. When I came to Bali I continuously met people on my path that put me in certain direction that I felt like I needed to explore more.

I went from a yoga teacher training to reiki energy healing to wise women retreats. Even I am not the kind of person that is super yoga. I don’t actually do yoga everyday. But Yoga was a gateway for me into that spiritual self-study and self-improvement world. Now I prefer dancing and embodied movement as a tool to more in tune with my nature.

Dancing for me is a form of meditation. I feel free when I dance. The only thing that matters is the music and your body in the movement. When you dance, you would hear a certain layer of music and you moved to that layer. Then you hit the next layer and then you started moving to that eventually your body became one with the music.

International travel to Bali was not something that I thought was ever going to be in my life. Where I came from, Los Angeles, in my head that time it was the thing that only rich people do. I was always sort of working to get comfortable to have enough and just being content.

I was working a lot and beginning to achieve the things that I wanted to achieve. I was rising through the levels that I wanted to rise to. I was kind of getting the things I wanted to get on a certain level. When I was 21, I would have done unspeakable things to be able to achieve what I had and I was not still satisfied.

Somehow, in the late 20s, I got the chance to visit my best friend in Bali. There I was struck by that outpouring of genuine kindness from the Balinese and just that care for one another. That genuine interest of service to another person for no sort of recourse or reward or anything just being kind to people for the sake of being kind. These are why I decided to stay and work here.

My name is Kim Laros. I am from the Netherlands. I am here in Bali since last September. I have my own business called laroslab. I am a photographer and I create social media content, especially for companies in Holland. There is a new business coming and that is all about fashion.

I’m a creative person, I love to create things. I love to make pictures and show people through my eyes to my pictures. Pictures how the world looks like and Bali is specially perfect for that. The nature here is beautiful, the light is beautiful, and I show people the way I see Bali through my lenses. With photography I can create many things.

I actually started my career as a hairdresser in a hair salons. Because in the past I saw that hair salons had trouble with social media. I then combined those two things I am passionate about. Now I help them with creating and writing their contents. I can do that from everywhere in the world and I decide to do it in Bali.
