An artistic photographer lies in ALL of us

 By Lisa Langell

We as photographers often want to be more innovative and creative, but our own mental barriers can “prevent” the creative process from happening. One of the biggest mental blocks is simply believing, “I’m not a very creative person.” I hear this most often from engineers, accountants, and those in technical fields who have struggled to discover the creative style they desire. 
This session breaks down creative barriers in a really fun and logical way! I take an interactive, “myth-busters-style approach!” You’ll learn how to apply the creative process and develop patterns that will bring more joy, innovation, success, creativity and happiness to your photography! You will learn:

  •  How even those who feel they “are not artistic” can actually become artistic and creative
  •  Understand “imaginative skill” and how it develops
  •  About my “Mash up” formula for producing creativity
  •  How you can debunk your own myths about artistic and creative ability
  •  How to exercise your creativity through real-world examples and activities we will complete during the session
  •  Inspirations to take with you

Lisa Langell is a full-time, award-winning photographer whose work has appeared in numerous prestigious publications including the cover of Outdoor Photographer magazine, plus numerous images in Arizona Highways, Ranger Rick, art galleries and more.  She currently sits on the Board of Directors for the North American Nature Photography Association.  She is also a proud ambassador for Tamron,  FotoPro, and H&Y filters.

Whether it was working as a master floral designer, a licensed psychologist, university faculty, an international consultant in K-12 education, the Chief Business Development Officer of an education technology company, a researcher, a writer, or an artist—she enjoyed meeting each challenge.

Still, her strongest calling was photography--ever since childhood--when bird watching ignited her lifelong love of nature and the camera.  In 2010, she turned her passion for photography into a business—and in 2015 she successfully transitioned to photography full-time and left the corporate and consulting world behind.  

The journey with photography has definitely been Lisa’s favorite – she loves combining her diverse background and skills into her photographic art and instruction.  Bringing joy to others brings joy to her! She thrives on creating innovative learning experiences and pushing photographic boundaries.  She equally enjoys enriching, stimulating and expanding fellow photographers’ minds emotionally, creatively and intellectually.
