Default Newb Arduino laser question

Hey guys, I am trying to build something and am basically clueless.

I use a Triggertrap to photograph high speed stuff (waterdrops, etc) and use a laser to trigger the Ttriggertrap. The Triggertrap is just a prebuilt/programmed Arduino setup that fires the camera when the laser beam is broken.

So the problem that I am trying to cure is that the laser is visible in some photographs. What I would like is for the laser to turn off by splitting the "triggering" output of the Triggertrap so that the laser is off when the camera fires. One side would go to the camera, the other to a controller.

Best I can tell (bring the newb...) I need a laser module and a controller that will power it and turn it off with an input signal from the Triggertrap.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
