ABOUT LISA

Lisa Gualtieri Alford is a visual storyteller with a passion for travel. At age twelve she began taking pictures with her father’s camera and years later, earned a BFA in Photography from Parsons School of Design in NYC.

Lisa is highly adept in the education and technical use of imaging equipment for the professional video, cinema, and photography industries. She currently works as a Regional Account Manager for Canon USA where she travels around the U.S. conducting professional imaging workshops, product demos, training, and learning events for her Higher Education and B2B accounts. Lisa also teaches photography and video workshops to at-risk youth, people in under-served communities, children with cancer, and to support environmental and social activism in the US and abroad. Whether she travels for work or pleasure, she always has her camera with her to document the places she goes, people she meets, and things she sees.

Wherever her wanderlust takes her, she is always happy to come home to Queens, where she resides with her husband Derrick, and their cat, G-Loco.
