ABOUT

Isa Wipfli is a professional photographer based in New York City. Originally from Ashland, OR, Isa studied journalism and fine art at the University of Oregon. After graduation, Isa spent his time traveling the world and taking photographs while developing a unique and affective visual style marked by spontaneity and natural beauty. His work weaves together documentary, portraiture and contemporary lifestyle.  In addition to shooting influential editorials and commercial clients, Isa dedicates himself to personal projects that explore the boundaries of our culture.

From the time Isa Wipfli decided to pursue a career as a professional photographer, he has striven to make moments appear fluid and unplanned captured with profound natural beauty. "I like to work closely with the talent, making them feel at ease while lulling them into an atmosphere of enjoying a real social setting," says Wipfli. "I like to create scenarios and give the talent characters to play - I find this takes the attention away from the photo crew and makes way for improvisation. We end up capturing moments we couldn't script, and this is when the true magic happens."

While it is important to keep things "loose" when the camera is rolling, Isa believes paying attention to ALL details when planning a shoot is a must. "The more of an understanding you have about your location, cast, equipment, props and crew and how they all work together, the better," says Wipfli. From his experience, this ensures the creative direction and aesthetic are executed while adhering to the guidelines of a given budget.  It also helps deal with any obstacles that present themselves during the shoot.
