Lisa started taking photographs seriously at drama school, where she began taking her fellow students’ headshots. Starting a business in 1990, she has taken many thousands of Spotlight sessions since, together with theatre production and on set film photos, as well as location and events commissions – and the odd wedding.


I’ve never been one for ‘mission statements’ – so hope the work here will speak for itself. The only thing I would say, is that I know (from experience) that most actors detest having their photos taken… I hope my approach will suit all those who think the same. The onus to get it right is mine not yours…!


Production photos

I’ve taken many theatre production photos over the years, both from commissions, as well as show’s I’ve appeared in. Also, a few screen productions.



I’ve been lucky to have had the opportunity to visit a number of very different locations to take photos, over the years  – from the roof of Somerset House, Gerry Anderson’s back garden and The Leeds Rock Festival – to Emmerdale Farm.
