The first Lisa Saad Photographer - lisasaad.com, is aimed at high end Advertising and Corporate clients wanting remarkable new and groundbreaking imagery, whist the second, Gotham Studios - gothamstudios.net, is an online prepaid photography service that is unique and serves to be placed as a market leader in the supply of functional high-end photography to B2B clients across Australia as well as a learning and mentoring portal for those wanting to increase their skill set in photography and maintain and run a photographic business.  Lisa has always believed that good quality photography should be accessible to everyone and that no one should miss out the opportunity to work with a professional photographer. Her experience in all platforms of digital and analogue media has made her an expert in producing imagery, digital manipulation, branding and campaign requirements and old school techniques. Lisa’s in depth knowledge of all levels of client briefs, pre & post production, casting, lighting & camera requirements, crews, locations, retouching, composites, layered effects, cinematography, video editing and delivery has been proven over and over again and without fault hitting each and every brief, everytime. Over the years Lisa has won some 200+ awards for her commissioned and conceptual personal work, both locally and overseas which now allows her the honour of being a rare true master dedicated to the art of photography. Lisa is the 2015 Victorian and Australian Professional Commercial Photographer of the Year as well as the Australian Professional Ambassador for Manfrotto and an ILFORD Master.
STATEMENT OF ART:
I am inspired by all things from how I feel, what I see and what I am exposed too. I am inspired by good design, tall buildings, long freeways and the way light can highlight the smallest details. I am inspired by a song, a ticking clock or a sculptures hands. In general I am inspired by life but mostly I inspire myself.
