About Lisa Trocchi Photography

Born in Johannesburg South Africa, Lisa returned home after much travel, having had her start in the world of professional photography as a publicity photographer to stars such as Eric Roberts, Leon Schuster, Embeth Davidtz and Evita Bezuidenhout.

After her time in the film industry, she worked as principal photographer for 5 years for national publications such as “Your Baby” and “Your Pregnancy” magazines. Babies, babies and more babies. She photographed the stages of pregnancy, birth and newborns, as well as all the food, products, adverts and in fact everything in between the covers of the “Your Pregnancy” magazine.

Over the years she also collaborated on several books on pregnancy and birth – words by Tina Otte, photos Lisa Trocchi. Then came a period of Annual Reports for corporates such as Shell (S.A.), the Kellogg Foundation, Alexandra Clinic. Lisa was privileged to meet with and photograph Nelson Mandela three times following his release.
In Lisa’s words, “Mere words or even television coverage fail to capture the wonderful presence and humanity of this great man.”

Lisa owned two photographic studios, in Cape Town and Joburg respectively, providing make-up artistes, hair experts and retouchers to enhance model portfolios and family portraits. Nowadays Lisa’s main work is photographing a range of subjects – including real estate, families, weddings, model portfolios, corporates and food – preferring to travel to clients, rather than working out of a studio.
