Lisa Oliveri Bruno is an editorial and commercial photographer specializing in boudoir photography. She grew up in the small town of Hollywood Beach, Florida but currently makes her bed in Rhode Island. Lisa first found herself in front of the lens as a Fendi model in her twenties. It was through her love of fashion and all things luxurious, that she later landed a job as the business manager for Yves Saint Laurent for Nordstroms.
At the young age of seventeen, Lisa joined the U.S. Navy where her service was marked by a special Letter of Commendation from the U. S. Navy for excellence in Public Relations. It was during this time that Lisa honed the interpersonal skills that have helped make her a respected photographer and entrepreneur.
Lisa started taking photographs in her twenties but after finding love and getting married in 1997 she had new inspiration and rekindled her love with film that grew as the possibilities of the digital world came to life. Lisa launched 64 Degrees Photography in 2010 providing Boudoir photography for women ages 30 and up – when the most beautiful (but often unappreciated) phase of a women’s life is just beginning. An already accomplished woman, Lisa’s photos have graced magazine covers, billboards, calendars, editorials, and art galleries. Her work also includes photo journalism in local papers.
In her spare time, Lisa donates her services to The Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resourse Foundation. Lisa feels that lending her talents to this group of incredible people is the perfect exchange for the inspiration they give her.
If you asked Lisa what makes her most proud, however, she would likely tell you that bearing a child at the age of forty was her crowning achievement. After marrying a man with three children of his own, Lisa was told not to expect one of her own - she beat the odds. Much like her photographs, Lisa believes life should always have some element of surprise.
