NICOLE MORRISON

APA SF BOARD MEMBER

Pronouns: she/her

Nicole is a lifestyle, product and food photographer based in San Francisco. She likes to create colorful, bold images that help brands tell their story and stand out online. She attended SF State University where she found a love for telling stories through pictures in the Photojournalism department. She is inspired by new foods, places and people; learning their stories and translating them into images. She is especially inspired by people and brands that are working towards a more sustainable and just planet by improving our food systems, paying people fairly, sourcing materials ethically, creating clean products for our bodies and plates, and reducing plastic and other harmful waste. When she's not taking pictures she is most likely to be found petting any dog she encounters or loosely following a new recipe.  nicolemorrisonphotography.com

LISA WISEMAN

APA SF BOARD MEMBER

Pronouns: she/her

I am an exuberant, say yes, exclamation point of a human being! My superpower would be the ability to sleep through anything. Love, kindness and gratitude run my world. I used to teach piano, I swim in every body of water I encounter, and my secret talent is being able to spot poison oak from a speeding car. I’m known for shooting unusual and intimate portraits of both regular and well-known folks for clients big and small. For the rest of the nitty-gritty, check out my website www.lisawiseman.com

Pronouns: he/him/his

I'm a commercial photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. My beginnings were rooted in photojournalism which I now infuse into my work to capture real moments and genuine images.
