January Members’ Meeting featuring Lisa Fernandez

Posted by:

Photography and Storytelling

One of the biggest challenges photographers face is getting their work recognized, for some, that means working locally and being able to make a living, for others, it is having a chance to be featured internationally. The most recognized photographers know it’s about telling the story- drawing the reader in so that they want to know more and yet not having to explain. Lisa will talk about how to tell a story through a series of pictures and how to submit work.

You will come away knowing more about

  • How to choose pictures to submit to a contest or show
  • Finding a project to work on
  • Travel and learning

14th January 7 PM at Helen May Johnstone Room, Queen’s Hall

Members $30 Non-members $60


About Lisa

Lisa Fernandez is a Trinidadian street photographer who focuses on documenting the daily lives of people around the world. She is fascinated by rituals and traditions, and life as it happens on the streets, and her portfolio is filled with images of people and their interactions with the world around them. For several years she has focused locally on covering traditional Carnival characters and events, and more recently she has expanded her photo documentary to include religious and cultural events. Her aim is to tell the story of home. Internationally, Lisa travels and studies with several National Geographic photographers, in the last few years these workshops have taken her to more than ten countries. Lisa was also chosen for The Photography Master Retreat, a one week retreat in a remote hamlet in the south of France, a workshop where photographers are guided by three mentors to reflect on their work and its meaning.
