Lisa Westgaard is an award-winning photographer specializing in 
food and still life.

Her Oslo based studio is literally a treasure chest of props  –  
floor to ceiling covered in unique collectables.

From packaging and advertising, to fine art, books and editorial, Lisa brings an artist’s eye to every image she creates for her clients.

Her work is infused with her vision from start to finish, as she playfully experiments with light, compositions, textures and color. 
She is described by her collegues as a photographer who does not
take a picture – she creates it. 

Her images jump off the page, whether digital, paper, billboard, or displays. 

As an art photographer, Lisa is is passionate about capturing the beauty of the imperfect.  Her work has been exhibited in solo- and group exhibitions.
As a director her short films tell visual food stories.
