Welcome to Lisa Braun Photography! The purpose of my blog is to showcase my photography and artwork, and to encourage other Creatives along the way. Oftentimes I find that Photographers and Artists can live a very isolated existence. Because of this, when I post new work I write what inspired me, or something relatable to the creative process or a lesson I have learned along the way. By sharing my thoughts and feelings I hope I am encouraging other Creatives to do the same. We have many avenues to show our work, but if we can share a piece of ourselves in the process, we break down the walls of isolation and enter into a beautiful community together. So whether you are here to see my photographs, my art work, or you are here to connect, I am glad to do this creative life together! Welcome!
A little about me… I was the kid drawing in her room at all hours of the night and taking pictures all throughout the day. Although I got my first camera at 7 years old, (a vivitar 110 film camera thank you very much, yes, I am a 70’s kid, ) I didn’t truly begin my photography journey until I moved to Cape Cod in 2009. As a current Harford County Maryland resident, I do love living near the Chesapeake Bay. But I was so inspired by all of the beautiful landscapes, beaches, sunrises and sunsets while living in Coastal New England, that it was there that my ability to focus on my love of photography truly blossomed.
With the ever changing dynamics of photography, I feel I’ll always consider myself a novice of sorts. However, I hope to continue to learn and grow and always enjoy the challenge of finding new subjects, experimenting with various equipment and learning new techniques. This love of learning and evolving eventually lead me back to my roots, as an Artist. Currently in addition to Photography, I am enjoying drawing and painting as well these days, but my favorite medium is Alcohol Ink. And I am particularly passionate about using my Macro lens to photograph them!
As a Photographer, I dabble in Portrait Photography, but I specialize in Macro, Landscape and Travel Photography. I am passionate about creating stories with my images, and I am drawn to dynamic colors, dramatic landscapes and bold subjects both in architecture and in still life. As I upload my photographs I will usually post all of the settings I used to capture the image as well. I do this because when I was a new photographer I often wondered about those things and I am passionate about helping others along as much as I can.
All of the photographs and artwork on my website are available for purchase in print, canvas, metallic and acrylic formats and can be shipped anywhere in the world. If you are interested in an image, contact me directly as I like to personally work with you to choose the size and format that would most benefit the space it is being hung or discuss the person it is being gifted to. I only use professional printing services and presentation materials as this ensures that you receive an archival worthy piece made to stand the test of time. Contact me for details via email.
As an avid supporter of the arts in my local community, I occasionally exhibit my photography at Harford Artists Gallery in Bel Air, MD. (I have also exhibited photographs at some of their satellite locations as well, including the Independent Brewing Company and Pairings Bistro.) In addition to showing my work locally I choose to donate some of my photographs to local charity events that benefit causes I am passionate about. In February 2018, I was honored to be chosen as Harford County Living’s Artist of the Week, and was interviewed in 2019 on their podcast as part of Harford County Photography Field Trips. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with new photographers and leading workshops when opportunities present themselves.
