Charissa Lucille - Photo by Josh Loeser

My interest in photography began when I was eight years old and living in Hawaii. After photographing my thumb for a while, I knew I could only improve from there. My passion for photography developed when I was 15 and taking a film and darkroom class in high school. Since then, I've spent years learning and teaching myself about the art of photography and crafting my skill. I am not limited to any type of medium and I work with a blend of old and new equipment. I aim to change societal norms and how we view the world. I create art and show the beauty of the world and the people in it. Enjoy! 

I am a Phoenix, Arizona based photographer. I graduated from Arizona State University in 2014 with my Bachelor in Fine Arts. I am primarily interested in photographing to critique the world around us and inspire change. Contact me at
