Lissa Hahn is a fine art photographer who has been shooting commercial projects since 2001. She divides her time shooting assignments in Los Angeles and Kalamazoo MI. She is hired for her proven ability to deliver the highest caliber imagery with professionalism and feeling.
“Visual problem solving is my passion. My 20+ years of image-making gives me the ability to clearly visualize images from early concept stages to the final shot. I use a range of cameras and lighting equipment, a great crew, and an instinctive sensibility to create a specific feeling, emotion, or idea. The key service I provide is my ability to understand all of the elements required to effectively communicate my client’s message.”
Some of Lissa's projects include the Hipcooks Cookbook, portraits of Guri Weinberg from The Twilight Saga, consultant work to develop photography guides for LifeLine to Care, Nestles, One World Chorus, Kuhl Care, Reva Vase, Philosophy Antiques, Exarthur, Lush Magazine, OC Weekly, Tulle Clothing, Topin, Maxine Dillon, Puella, and Glascia Icebottle.
The California-born Hahn began her photographic studies in high school, in Richmond VA, where she learned traditional darkroom film processing and printing techniques. In 1995 she moved back to California to pursue her studies of photography including a master workshop with renowned photographer Mark Edward Harris at the University of California, Los Angeles. Hahn supported her studies by working at a prestigious Hollywood photography lab where she came in direct contact with the film of Bruce Weber, the prints of Ellen Von Unwerth and many other photographic luminaries. She then headed to New York to work as a photographic assistant while shopping her portfolio around. Assignments and gallery exhibitions soon allowed Hahn to leave her invaluable assisting days behind.
In 2002 Hahn moved back to Los Angeles to open her own studio in the Brewery Artist Colony, a location she continues as to use as one of her creative bases. She also finds herself creating fun amazing portraits in Kalamazoo Michigan and greater Chicago area.
ABOUT FINE ART
Taking an innovative approach to photography. Hahn's images are created not with digital manipulation but with one click of the camera. Capturing a parallax perspective, detached from context, she expands spatial depth altering our visual sense of reality. Brilliant color spaces meet complex patterns and unfold a startlingly unique visual every time.
Hahn's Diplopia series of photographs are printed onto aluminum giving the images an added omnipresent holographic feeling.
