About
Lisa Saad is an accomplished Advertising, Commercial, Corporate and Food Photographer. Lisa is always on the hunt for unique photographic briefs and is not satisfied unless she has found and exhausted every possible angle to fulfil a brief.

Reoccurring elements of Lisa?s work are, crystal clear colours for industrial and product; texture, wings and a sense of drama for art; matching style for corporate and people photography.

"Photography is my calling, my profession, and all I ever wanted to do since I stumbled over an old camera in a pile of rubbish when I was six. I was born with this craving to explore. The next 40 years I shot, developed, imagined, pondered, created and retouched. Won some important awards, joined some important associations, jumped into the water, built a vast studio, shot film, found love, got married and shot some more.

This might be convoluted for some, but I am a dedicated versatile photographer. I still love analogue and am equally passionate about shooting in all sorts of digital media.

I am happy, creative and friendly when I shoot. I see dozens of solutions when presented with a problem. I find it exciting to be the conduit between the client?s vision and a final product that captures the essence of the briefs. I don?t mind if this requires me to go for a simple, pragmatic, out-of-the-box, innovative or high-end technically sophisticated approach or until 3am ? so long as the product satisfies the client - and is beautiful."

It is Lisa's preparedness to flout the rules of conventional photography that has made her a favorite with creative directors, public relations practitioners, magazines and graphic designers in Australia and overseas and has secured her numerous local and international photographic awards. Lisa is at the forefront of a new approach to creating imagery and understands that, good imagery should be available to everyone.

Lisa has photographed 'high-end' advertising campaigns, fashion, lifestyle, location, corporate, food, portraiture, editorial and illustrative work to automotive shoots. She has shot stills for all the major TV networks in Australia and is a talented camera operator and DOP.

Lisa shot a series of portraits for us of women we dressed up as heroines and goddesses - and put up with exceptionally challenging circumstances. She was absolutely fantastic and is a league of her own as a photographer. She was generous, immensely helpful and resourceful during preparations and just incredibly talented on set. Her ideas for costumes and posture took the pictures to a much higher level aesthetically and dramatically. We have had nothing but fully satisfying experiences with her. Lisa is one of the most gifted and technically skilled professional you can get today.

Having worked with Lisa on both sides of the camera, I can honestly say that I have not met anyone with more passion for what they do than Lisa. Not only does she put her heart into every job, but she listens to her client's needs and helps them put THEIR hearts into each job also. From a technical perspective, what Lisa is able to do with light is brilliant. I am constantly amazed by her ability. Andy MacFeate Product Manager - Manfrotto
