Meet Lisa

Lisa Russell is a Philadelphia-based Food Stylist with a background in marketing, photography and graphic design. A former marketing executive turned stylist, Lisa brings the client's and the customer's perspective to every shoot.  She approaches each project with a “nothing is impossible” attitude, a sharp eye for detail, and an endless supply of creativity. Her clients range from international companies like IKEA and Coca Cola to Philly favorites like Starr Restaurants and John & Kara's. As part of an ESL student hosting program she also opens her West Philly home to students from all over the world and spends her free time helping them practice English and learn about American culture through cooking and community dinners. When she's not cooking she can often be found combing thrift stores and flea markets for vintage cookware and cutlery or helping to develop food styling workshops for clients and schools. An avid traveler, Lisa goes wherever her client's need her, but always returns home for her favorite Fu-Wah hoagie and the joys of Philly front porch dining.
