About Course

In 1988 she became only the second woman photographer to ever shoot for Playboy Magazine; completing nearly 600 editorial spreads over 12 years for the publication, and breaking through a barrier to give women a voice in the work that portrayed them. In this segment of our Trailblazers series our own Mia McCormick sits down with Lou and discusses topics that range from how Lou got started in photography to the lessons she learned from her time shooting for Playboy, and from the opportunities for growth that came from working in a demanding environment to how she continues to stay relevant to such a wide variety of clients.
