BIO
Lisa Cassell-Arms is a fine art and editorial photographer focused on capturing the magic and beauty of the natural world, gardens, travel and food. Recently, Lisa has been exploring the idea of combining images of natural space and landscape; merging images that are different, yet related by form or meaning, across time and location. Largely self-taught, Lisa became enamored with photography as a young teenager and worked her way through the complete Time-Life Library of Photography books, which provided a great early education in the mechanics, principles and history of photography.
After graduating with a degree in Film from New York University, Lisa worked in television advertising production and film rights acquisitions. Lisa segued into culinary arts, cooking and recipe development which led naturally to food photography and the publication of a cookbook, Seasons in a Vermont Vineyard, Arcadia Publishing.
Lisa has studied at the International Center for Photography and participated in the Atelier and education through the Griffin Museum, Maine Media workshops and Santa Fe Workshops. Her fine art and editorial work has been exhibited in galleries, appeared in print and online. Lisa lives in beautiful Vermont with her husband and silver Labrador.
