Lisa loves photography. And cats. Gingers, to be exact.
With a whopping 20+ years of experience under her belt and a bounty of fabulous reviews, Lisa has certainly found her life’s calling.
“In a world full of fake, I strive to bring out the real.”
Growing up in a cosy, regional farm town in W.A., the Northern Beaches based portrait photographer uses her quintessential country charm when she gets behind the lens.
She has a knack for getting even the most reluctant subject to loosen up and relax via her vivacious personality and wicked sense of humour.
“I’m always trying to get that connection. I want to get the real person out.”
Her passion and personal flavour lie in portraiture. Storytelling photography. People. She’s a self-professed naturally curious person.
Lisa often hears the same thing:
“I feel like you can see inside of me. You really got me.”
She waits for the moment. She waits for the feeling. And then she presses the button.
Lisa uses the same method with corporate photography. She makes sure some personality comes through. A little pizzazz. Nothing dull, nothing grey.
From snapping pics of local families back in the day, to working with some top names (ask her about the Logie winner story - it’s a corker!), Lisa definitely knows what she’s doing. Check out her portfolio.
“At the end of the day, I’m just trying to get the real person out.”
