I believe in a world where I can help lift others to be their best creative possibility. My goal is to bring your vision to life through, branding, flyers, websites, photography and video.

I love to create clean, on-message designs that clearly communicate what your customers need to hear from you. I can add a professional touch to your project that will show to your customers that you are passionate about what you do.

One area I specialize in is working with nonprofits and can help your cause just like I did for Youth Popular Culture, Inc.

"I couldn’t be happier with the work I received over the last 12 months from Lisa Missenda Photography. When I was looking around for a solid web and graphic designer for a Youth Prevention Project for website development and social media campaigns in Washington, DC, I wanted to be sure that I found a designer who brought  passion and the quick skills to back it up. That’s just what Lisa brings to her projects. From working to create the right URL, to selecting a web services company, her insight and follow-ups saved me time and most of all money. Her rates where always reasonable and detailed proposals and invoices are appreciated. Lisa Missenda Photography is amazing. Lisa is always creative, quick and so much fun to work with, I highly recommend her for any digital business in today fast pace "All Things Internet".

I can offer live event photography, album and website photography, video and graphic design promotion and branding. I can manage your website or your social media feed. I can help spread your music to your fans.

I am a certified expert in Adobe Photoshop and have extensive experience working with WordPress websites and websites on a number of other Content Managed Systems like Wix, Drupal and Joomla.

5 Things to Know About Me

I started my career as a custom Ilfochrome printer in the Washington DC area. I have experience with film – black and white, color transparency and color negative, from 35mm to 8×10. I love exploring the digital photographic process and learning new techniques everyday. Photography is a important part of who I am and how I express myself.

As the photographic film industry began to change, I taught myself graphic design and digital photography. I have worked for non profits and musicians. I love focusing on how to make a design better. Playing with contrast, color and type to achieve a harmony in every design.

34 websites on three different CMS platforms (Drupal, Joomla and WordPress) and HTML sites, just touch on the extent of the experience I have with websites. I love the challenge of designing websites and creating the code to make the website look how my clients want. I have experience problem solving wordpress sites and finding solutions to their website issues.

Whether it is an album cover, a website, or a live performance, I love it. Today’s artist need content like never before. That is where I can help. I can create a video of your concert, promotional photos or social media content.  Never underestimate your need in today’s world for fresh content. Let me help you! My greatest joy is to help you share your creative expressions.

Every month, I go out and photography in nature. It is a special time for me when I feel very close to my Creator. You can see my photos by becoming a patron of my patreon project on Patreon.com.
