Art & Life with Lisa Weaver

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lisa Weaver.

Lisa, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I can’t remember a time when photography wasn’t a part of my life. From my first childhood 110 cameras to my current full-frame digital, I have cherished the stories captured with the click of my shutter. My passion for photography was nothing more than a hobby up until a few years ago when I transitioned from the office/accounting world to full-time professional photographer. Initially, I worked as a wedding photographer and truly loved every minute. However, I have since realized my heart and soul are most inspired by captivating portraits. I currently work as a traveling lifestyle, portrait and headshot photographer who is fortunate to photograph beautiful people in gorgeous locations all across our country.

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
As a lifestyle, portrait and headshot photographer, my goal is to connect with the person I am photographing on a level that allows me to capture the true essence of who they are. To produce images that exhibit emotion and create a connection between the viewer and the subject.

What do you think is the biggest challenge facing artists today?
One of the biggest challenges facing photographers today is trying to stand out in an over-saturated market. Social media and the ability to establish an online presence and brand is one of the best ways for artists to connect on a large scale. However, this places a greater burden to be unique. Very few concepts, if any, have never been tried. A quick Google search yields a multitude of samplings of any idea one wishes to explore. This can be inspiring and frustrating all at the same time. The key is to strive to stay focused on bringing my personal view, my heart, to my images.

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
I have been fortunate to have my work featured in various print and digital publications. Follow along on Instagram to see my most recent work.
