Who I Am
My name is Jia, but most people know me as Lisa Luo.
Based in Washington D.C., I am a photographer, videographer, artist, graduate student, and a researcher specializing in education.
I find our existence to be fascinating and wondrous. In my work, I use photography and other mediums of self-expression to explore concepts of nature, simplicity, perception, and our connection with ourselves and each other.
I am also a believer that art can completely (and positively) transform an individual, and over the years, I've realized that my mission is to spread ideas and self-empowerment through creating, sharing, and teaching art. In my free time, I serve as a teaching artist for the photography classes at a local nonprofit that provides free arts education to youth living in transitional housing in D.C. Contributing my small part to social progress, I conduct research and evaluation for social programs and education agencies during the day.
One of my favorite things is working with people and telling their story through photography, digital art, or video. I provide creative services to entrepreneurs, start-ups, artists, musicians, performers, couples, and organizations who are looking for imagery that is holistic and tailored to their vision.Want to work together?

Other fun facts about me? I like to indulge in cooking, thrift stores, live concerts, trying new things, yoga, the Tao Te Ching, and exploring Mother Nature.
Like everything, my work continues to evolve everyday and I invite you to join me on my journey.
