Lisa Kaulback is a passionate educator that loves bringing fresh talent into the industry! Check out our current line up of photography production courses with VanArts and Langara College.
Having taken some thirty odd classes in Langara's CS Photography Program, Lisa Kaulback's Commercial Production class is one that I most frequently and highly recommend to aspiring commercial photographers. In addition to the wealth of information and industry knowledge that Lisa shares with her students, she raises the bar in terms of her expectations for your work and your contribution to the class. She is the epitome of what it takes to be a professional, and she expects nothing less from her students. And that she does it with her own inimitable style and sense of humour makes the experience all the more unforgettable.

It’s impossible to describe the impact Lisa has on both the quality of images that come from a production and a relationship your team has with the client, but I’ll try anyway. First off, she’s going to cover all the production bases that you think you could probably cover, but she’ll be quicker, more effective, and will save production budget in the process. Also (and more importantly) she’ll cover everything you didn’t think of, so that problems are dealt with days or weeks before the shoot. In simple terms she’s going to take away all the task you probably don’t want to do (and aren’t good at), and leave you to focus on the creative. The end result is you spend more time on the work you enjoy, the shoot flows seamlessly and the client is happy. She’s like an angel that protects you from both the things you didn’t see coming and your own stupidity.

Lisa's professional industry experience combined with her creative approach to teaching make for one amazing photography class. Having worked with her outside of the classroom as well, I would say there is no one I would rather have on a commercial shoot than her. She is organized, competent, and beyond knowledgeable. Lisa is an amazing person to work with!
Amanda Oster, Provoke Studios - http://www.provokestudios.com
I initially signed up for [Langara College’s] Commercial Production as I wanted to learn how those amazing images you see on advertisements were made -- and this course delivered far more useful information than that! I found that useful skills in managing your own production were taught as well, which has come in handy for coordinating editorial-type shoots for wedding and food photography. … Despite the demands of the course, I quite enjoyed it and would recommend it to any photographer who is interested in pursing a career in commercial or editorial photography.

Lisa is terrifically organized and has a knack for simplifying complex tasks. She presents her scenarios with the useful backing of experience and industry contacts. Her subjective critical opinions were thought provoking enough to help drive my work to another level and she's pleasant to be around.

Lisa is extremely knowledgeable in Commercial Production and conveys that knowledge in an easy to understand format, while challenging students to their full potential. She is great at listening to student education needs, and answers all questions happily, and with considerable detail if needed … She has excellent interpersonal skills, and is able to connect well with students. … [Lisa] is an inspiration, and a valuable asset to Langara College.
