Laurie Collins is the photographer behind the popular Instagram handle @dccitygirl. A DC-native with a keen eye for unique cityscapes, Laurie grew a lifelong photography hobby into a bonafide creative movement with an Instagram following of over 62K people.
As community manager of @IGDC, Laurie has established herself as a leader in DC’s burgeoning collective of DC photographers and visual artists, many of whom she considers family. #IGDC has been tagged over one million times on Instagram, and IGDC hosted their first community exhibition at the über-Instagrammable Blind Whino this past fall.
Laurie is a systems engineer by trade as well as a Microsoft certified trainer. In the early 1990s she founded LC Systems, a DC-based consulting and information technology firm that works with government and private clients. Read more about Laurie’s experience establishing her career and business in a male-dominated field in her interview with StartDC.
