Bio

 

Lisa Saad

Director. Photographer. Perfectionist.

Lisa Saad combines creativity, 30 years of industry experience and a relentless passion for the art of photography to create award-winning work that speaks for itself. Her promise of quality and experience in all platforms of digital and analogue media adds a unique flavour to her distinctive style.

Lisa’s photographic work has gathered acclaim both locally and internationally. She is currently the 2016 AIPP Australian Professional Photographer of the Year as well as the 2017 & 2016 Victorian Professional Photographer of the Year. Apart from over 200 awards to her name, Lisa is also an Ilford Master and the brand ambassador for Manfrotto, Phottix, Epson, Tamron and Eizo.

Her most recent project ‘The Anonymous Man’ series has even found its way to the silver screen. Many pieces from the collection adorned the walls of the award-winning TV show Utopia, throughout its season 3 showcase.

Lisa is an accomplished Advertising and Commercial Photographer and a Director of Photography. She owns and operates two photographic businesses from her studio in Melbourne. One is targeted towards high-end imagery for Advertising and Corporate client needs. The other supplies high-end photography to B2B clients.

She is also an expert in producing imagery, digital manipulation and old school techniques. She has an in-depth knowledge of every single facet that contributes to the final product. From composition to video-editing and everything in between, she’s committed to being a part of the entire process.

Lisa believes that anyone and everyone should have the ability and access to quality and professional photography. When she’s not creating epic work for brands and businesses, she’s busy lending her knowledge to help young and established photographers enhance their skill set.
