Lisa Kaulback is a mother, producer, educator, and entrepreneur that is structured, highly organized, and unparalleled at multi-tasking. She has a bizarre passion for budgets and sticking to them, and an amazing ability to stay calm under pressure. We’re not sure, but it might be a sickness.

As a graduate of Langara College’s Professional Photo-Imaging Program, Lisa has found expression for her obsessive attention to detail in the world of production, a role that involves helping photographers quote accurately, and manage even the most minuscule details of commercial photography shoots.

Her diverse portfolio on large scale stock shoots and award winning advertising campaigns dates back to 2002 and has taken her to Australia, on an Alaskan cruise, to the mountains and the desert, and into the strange world of taxidermy. Both in the classroom and with her previous venture as the co-founder of HiRes Pro Training, she is credited with high standards, demanding assignments, wit, and compelling anecdotes.
