About Lisa Whiteman
I'm an independent portrait and event photographer, specializing in documentary-style photos. Lisa Whiteman Lens is my photography portfolio.
I primarily photograph people, whether it's shooting posed portraits, covering events such as weddings and festivals, or candidly documenting the lives of my subjects, their families, or their work.
One of my strengths as a photographer is an ability to make people feel at ease in front of the camera, which helps me create a natural sense of intimacy between the viewer and the subject. I carry a camera with me everywhere, and when I'm not taking pictures on assignment, I spend a lot of time photographing family, friends, and strangers.
My photographs have appeared in films, advertisements, books, and other publications, including Life.com, GQ, Marie Claire, Interview Magazine, Salon.com, and The New York Times. My work was also included the Transformed by Light: The New York Night exhibit at The Museum of the City of New York.
Recently, I worked as one of the primary photographers for the documentary Stories from the Gulf: Living With the Oil Disaster, which was narrated by Robert Redford, and composed entirely of still photography. Some of my photographs from that project can be seen here.
If you'd like to purchase my photos or if you're interested in hiring me, you can take care of that here. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have and am open to taking on a wide variety of photo projects, large and small. I'm based in Los Angeles, California, but I don't mind traveling.
Please ask before using my photos for any reason. (Thanks!)
