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

Got tired. Moved  to San Francisco.When he's not behind the camera, he can be found tinkering on a motorcycle, trying to whip up something from the momofuku cookbook, checking kayak.com for last minute travel deals, and/or annoying his wife and two sons.

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

STEVE BABULJAK

APA SF BOARD MEMBER

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. I want my images to look and feel real. Through sincere interactions and a predisposition for spontaneity, I'm either producing real life or taking fully produced sets and making it feel real.

LUPINE HAMMACK

APA SF CHAIR & APA NATIONAL EXECUTIVE BOARD MEMBER 

Pronouns: he/him

For over a decade, Lupine Hammack has been creating the kinds of images that have been consistently described as akin to alchemy.  Narratives borne from a deep reverence and belief in all that is possible with photography — that while it is a tool for discovery, its ripple effects are a reminder that anything is possible.

Extending these beliefs beyond the studio, Lupine is a leading advocate for the San Francisco creative industry as a whole. Whether collaborating with local art community influencers, co-founding a new creative space in the form of Capital Art studios, or stepping in as chair of the board for the San Francisco chapter of the APA, Lupine values and consciously acts to encourage and elevate his community.
