Founder & Creative Director of BLACKLINE STUDIOS, Ami has been toting a camera since she had to beg her mom to buy film & flash bulbs. Some neighborhood child was being made over & dressed up. She speaks of a tiny neighborhood where the other girls became bored with "makeup & camera" day. The girls were all promoted to kitchen-table cosmetologists & instructed to bring their brothers. A Lifetime of Visual Storytelling, Ami knows how to get genuine reactions to convey your personality and style.
A Wise old woman once told Ami to follow her passion, do what she loves at work. What? Love working? Haha, no. She was just 22 & it took a few years to figure out she meant put Love in your work, no matter what you do to earn. She warned her, "if you spend your life chasing money, you'll never have enough. If your work is Love Made Visible, the money will follow."
Fun times for one little girl who wanted play "dress-up" in the closet of a young adult marketing professional who frequented black tie events & cocktail parties. Full Access Wardrobe & Makeup pass she, Ami & a Kodak Easyshare went to "work." Newly enrolled in Photography101, beginning the digital era, this was one of the results. © 2008 Ami Lisk
