Lara Jo Regan's career as a photographer has been uncommon and diverse, achieving serious acclaim and respect across the journalistic, art and commercial worlds.

With a background in Anthropology and fine art, Reganʼs work combines painterly aesthetics with closely observed behavioral studies and oblique social commentary, a signature style she has applied to everything from impoverished Appalachians to the Hollywood elite. Her interpretive documentary coverage of American culture has been regularly commissioned and published by the worldʼs leading magazines such as Time, Newsweek, Life, Premiere and Entertainment Weekly,
among many others. She is the recipient of many of her fieldʼs highest honors, including Pictures of the Year awards and the coveted World Press Photo of the Year.

Ironically, Regan also became known for creating a cultural phenomenon as well as covering one, as the artist behind the What is Mr. Winkle? photo collection that transformed her otherworldly canine muse, Mr. Winkle (a rescued stray), into an international cult icon featured in best-selling books, calendars, cards and collected artwork. The perennial popularity of this unique enterprise took over Reganʼs life for years, but ultimately allowed her to devote more time to long-term conceptual fine art and documentary projects, and the completion of her first film.

Regan's work has been exhibited throughout the world and is part of many collections. She has been a featured guest on numerous television broadcasts including CNN, the BBC, and The Today Show several times. Major articles about her work have appeared in dozens of prominent publications worldwide such as The New York Times, USA Today and The Los Angeles Times.
