Lori Pedrick is an interdisciplinary artist living in New England. Her skills include creative direction, graphic design, photography (commercial/editorial and fine art) and brand development. With over 25 years in publishing, she has art directed magazine’s with a variety of topics, including home, food/entertaining, travel, wedding, and both long-and short-form narrative. She recently received her MFA from the New Hampshire Institute of Art with a focus in photography (January, 2017).

 “Lori’s growth throughout the MFA program has been remarkable because of her intense honesty in how she both approaches life and how, in turn, others open up to her warmth and kindness. Annie Leibovitz has said; “to be a great photographer you must be present and active, looking.” Lori is all of that and her real attribute is the mix of her looking and her empathic nature. Subjects disarm in her company. I count myself lucky to have perhaps assisted along the way in her education, and in turn, I am very much looking forward to her work in our shared love of all things photographic. 

— Cheryle St. Onge, Photographer and Educator



“I have had the privilege to mentor Lori Pedrick. A receptive and engaging artist, Lori came to my studio enthusiastically prepared, presenting an abundance of new work, eagerly poised for in-depth feedback. Our relationship grew to be simpatico in every way. Lori’s dedicated interest in her pragmatic perception of gender identity, female specific, fascinated and impressed me; both with her photographs and her heartfelt connections to each subject. Her research, outreach in finding subjects to document, and her approach to make each photographic session successful never failed to impress me. A committed artist, Lori has the makings to be a significant artist in the near future and I welcome her as a colleague.”


— Stephen DiRado, Photographer and Educator

Every day, I continue to learn so much from her about making strong assignments that help bring our stories to life with visuals. On a personal level, Lori’s passion beyond her work life for photography and design is immense. She is constantly pushing herself to create work that inspires. She has a fantastic eye for composition and visual storytelling." —Heather Marcus, Photo Editor, Yankee Magazine


"I always look forward to a photo shoot with Lori. I know it will be a creative, energetic and collaborative assignment. Lori puts a lot of thought into her projects which makes for a thorough pre-production. While staying focused on her vision she still listens and welcomes everybody's expertise on the subject ... the result: a gorgeous magazine spread that I am always proud and excited to put on my website." — Catrine Kelty, Food and Prop Stylist, Boston
