About Lisa Trocchi Photography

I was born in Johannesburg South Africa, travelled the world, and am now based back in Jozi (but happy to travel!!)

I started out in the world of professional photography as a publicity photographer to stars such as Eric Roberts, Leon Schuster, Embeth Davidtz and Evita Bezuidenhout.

After the film industry, I photographed for two national magazines, “Your Baby” and “Your Pregnancy”. Babies, babies and more babies. I 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 I have 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. I photographed Nelson Mandela three times after his release.

I owned two photographic studios, one in Cape Town and one in Joburg , providing make-up artistes, hairstylists and graphic designers.

Nowadays I work solo, photographing a range of subjects – events, real estate, families, weddings, model portfolios, corporates and food – preferring to travel to clients, rather than working out of a studio.
