"Simply look with perceptive eyes at the world about you, and trust to your own reactions and convictions. Ask yourself: "Does this subject move me to feel, think and dream? Can I visualize a print - my own personal statement of what I feel and want to convey - from the subject before me?" Ansel Adams

 

::PASSION::ART::CREATIVE CHAOS::

 

I'm an artist, painting with a camera with a desire to create chaos wherever I see it. Photography to me, is a chance to explore the limitless boundaries of the subconscious whilst turning the world of photographic perception and reality, upside down. My ultimate aim is to drag the viewers of my images kicking and screaming into the nightmares and dark areas in my mind – a desolate place littered with strange characters and perverse sexuality. The artistic ethos behind WakentheDead is to capture a sense of chance by exploring a world that convention still has yet to contain or to control.

 

::FINE ART::SURREALIST::CREATIVE::EDITORIAL::

 

I’m always looking for some daring models to join me in collaborating on some of my projects. I currently have a series of 3 projects which I'm casting for on a TFP basis.

 

* I do offer and encourage TFP/CD Collaborations so please contact me for info on what I'm currently working on

* I’m also always looking for stylist and MUA’s for TFCD collaborations so get in touch

“I paint what cannot be photographed, that which comes from the imagination or from dreams, or from an unconscious drive.” - Man Ray

I've been admiring the evolution of Lisa's work for some time, she really is an incredibly talented photographer and digital artist. Her shots always seem to pierce the veil of reality to show not only what is in the picture, but what is behind it. Absolutely amazing work!

Being paranoid as Flickr artists usually are, I always have my eye out for streams that have a compilation of the greatest works of various artists--without credit--as the primary source of a photostream. My first glace of Lisa's work had me thinking, "There's no way she could have produced this... it's too good." Obvi… Read more

Being paranoid as Flickr artists usually are, I always have my eye out for streams that have a compilation of the greatest works of various artists--without credit--as the primary source of a photostream. My first glace of Lisa's work had me thinking, "There's no way she could have produced this... it's too good." Obviously, as I now sit here writing her a testimonial, I think of how ironic this is. Her images go beyond simply "good photography" or even "good photomanipulation." They are more a representation of "good imagination," which indeed, is what most of us here on Flickr struggle with. Your work is amazing, thank you for adding me as a contact :).

Its truly amazing that Waken The Dead / Lisa only picked up her camera less than a year ago. Her images already show great confidence, perfect compositions and vivid colors. I will no doubt check her fine portfolio at regular intervals, not just for purely egoistic entertainment, but also for proffesional inspiration. … Read more

Lisa has come so far, so fast with her photgraphy - I cant belive this lovely lady only picked up a camera 10 months ago. She has a natural tallent for creating strong, vibrant colours in all her work. I love seeing new pictures from her on my contacts page. xxxx

One truly talented amazing photographer. One of few people with extremely sharp eyes for detail and composition. She is an inspiration to me. I look at your portfolio every time I log into flickr. Alex

One thing that has always put a smile on my face, or a new thought in my head is Lisa's photography skills. I started following her work with myspace and I'm in awe every time Lisa comes out with new piece, and what also catches me off guard is when a talented photographer like Lisa takes time out of her busy schedule and writes a testimonial on me - it was like Christmas yesterday when I opened Flickr and discover what a wonderful and very talented photographer thinks about little ol me. Believe me when I write that every time I see something new of Lisa's I become more insipred to try and create what Lisa has already achieved. Thank you!

Lisa has an amazing eye for colour, and can make the ordinary, extraordinary. I look forward to every one of her photographs whether it is playing with still life, skillfully drawing us in to her surroundings, or constructing fantasies of costume and design

Lisa does not just take photos; her mind is one big camera! In Lisa’s wonderful world everything has a beauty. She manages to capture ordinary images, moments and everyday objects in wondrous settings. To add to her brilliant photos she always includes funny and profound narratives, which adds to the images.

"Honest and True"....These are two of many words I could use to describe Lisa's photos. Her photos span the gamut from warm and touching to strong and sensual. Others shoot with the same camera as she but few can take a thought from the mind, to the eye, to the hand, to the tip of a finger and produce what Lisa can....… Read more

Others shoot with the same camera as she but few can take a thought from the mind, to the eye, to the hand, to the tip of a finger and produce what Lisa can....These simple words cannot do justice so I urge you to view Lisa's entire stream from beginning to end and gaze at every photo.
