Lisa Marie Mannino specializes in landscapes, alternative camera work, commercial work and special events. Lisa has obtained her Bachelor of Arts with a concentration in photography with a minor in marketing at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, Florida. Lisa is looking to expanding her professional portfolio to include, but not limited to: design, fashion, sporting events, product, still life, children, newborns, families, engagements, maternity, head shots and pets. Photography enables Lisa to capture the world in an instant, but it is the manipulation of the photograph that allows her to put the viewer into another world. She likes to use various materials along with experimenting with the developmental process, while pushing the boundaries. Through her work, she then questions, what is a photograph? Photography to Lisa gives her a way to see the world through her lens and present it to others in a way that others might not have realized was there. In April 2018, Lisa published her first book: In Nature’s Arms, which she dedicated to her grandmother. Lisa has works published in the May 2018 Issue of Photographer’s Forum Magazine and was also deemed Honorable Mention, Lisa has one other photograph that was published in Polaris Journal of Arts & Literature, Spring Issue 2018. She has current works showing at University of North Florida, Jacksonville, FL.
