On Wednesday, June 17, at 6:30 pm, Lisa Asp will be hosting a Zoom meeting for our club. I will send out invitations by email today. Please register as soon as possible, as we will be extending an invitation to other clubs to take part in order to help make this worthwhile for our speaker.
There’s more than just squeaky toys when it comes to creating portraits of our 4-legged family members. Lisa Asp, owner of Tangerine House of Design in Minneapolis, MN, has been photographing pets since 2001 and has learned a thing or two along the way. Join us as she shares the inside scoop on training her (human) clients, lighting their dogs and getting expressions that the owners will love. As part of this seminar, Lisa will also discuss safety in working with pets, posing, lighting and lens selection.
Lisa Asp, M. Photog., M. Artist, Cr., CPP, grew up in Minnesota. She moved to the east coast in 1998 and opened an upscale, retail photography studio in Connecticut. When her husband was offered a job in Minnesota, they jumped at the chance to move back near family & friends and relocated in 2011. After purchasing and renovating a house, Asp opened “Tangerine House of Design”, a full-time photography studio in Edina, MN. Pet photography had previously been a small part of her business but took off at this point and became her niche market.
Asp has earned a “Photographer of the Year” medal from the Professional Photographers of America for the last 9 years straight and has been named one of PPA’s “Elite Plus” members. Lisa has won numerous awards for her work including five Kodak Gallery awards, Fuji Masterpiece, Lexjet, PPA District First Place and GIA Second Place, and many more. She enjoys volunteering her time with several pet rescues photographing their adoptable animals, fostering and assisting in their fundraisers and food drives. Her love of animals has grown into wildlife (and landscape) photography and has teamed up with another photographer to launch “Inspire Photo Tours” – small group educational and photographic experiences to help others explore the world photographically. She is a past president of the Twin Cities Professional Photography Association, Director of the Animal Image Makers Conference, and a PPA Councilor.
