I was born outside of Motown, grew up outside of Music City, kicked it on the west coast through my 20’s, then finally made my way to the right coast. I am an exclusive creator of imagery, and I love every minute of it. Whether I am designing or photographing, I am more than happy in my creative world.
My education includes a Bachelor of Arts in Commercial Photography with a concentration in Advertising from Brooks Institute of Photography and a Masters of Business Administration in Marketing.
I had many great experiences during my time at Brooks Institute. While assisting for Los Angeles music photographer Jimmy Steinfeldt during my senior year, I had the privilege of retouching Jimmy’s Rock&Roll Photo Book. On the flip side, I worked in the music industry assisting with marketing and promotions for Wednesday Records of Santa Barbara. During this time, I brought much success to Jon McKiel’s The Nature of Things release in Canada the same year.
My first love is photographing music. I’ve had the pleasure of photographing a few bands and musicians including, 8mm, The Coral Sea, and the award-winning DJ/Producer, Sean Ray of Los Angeles during my time in California.
After moving to New York in 2010, I assisted Newsday photographer, Barbara Alper, in Manhattan. Additionally, I was invited to shoot Tommy Sims, the bassist for Sheryl Crow at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
Lisa’s talent is more than evident in her work. She has the ability to work quickly and efficiently as well as make the photo shoot a very enjoyable experience. If you hire Lisa you will not be disappointed with the results and will want to work with her again. She is a professional photographer in every sense of the meaning.
