About Me

***Please note: I am currently focusing all my time on my 1920s portrait service. If you are interested in being transformed into a 1920s beauty please visit to view rates and info. This is the only project I am shooting right now.*** 

My name is Elisa Lazo de Valdez and I am a professional photographer in the Portland, Oregon area. I have been enjoying my craft for over ten years, and my work is featured globally in magazines, on book covers, in photography anthologies and gallery exhibitions.

My style focuses on images that are ethereal, tribal, dark, effervescent, surreal, emotive, and sublime. I love awkward body language and dramatic hands. High concept fashion and creative nudes are my two passions.

I shoot because it's fun! I meet amazing and interesting people, and it gives me an excuse to buy clothes I would normally have no reason to buy. I am always interested in working with local designers and artisans to incorporate their creations into my visual style. If you are a local designer and would like to collaborate please let me know!

*TFP: I do schedule TFP if you are suited for one of my creative personal projects, which tend towards the theatrical and strange. I am interested in models between 19 and 29 years old, toned, lean, somewhat flexible, a bit on the pale side and not afraid of getting messy. I don't shoot any kind of pin up or "lifestyle", so please don't approach me with that.

I love working with actors, musicians, artists, dancers, etc... anyone with an artistic point of view and an open mind. If you would like to be part of my creative process, message me with your information and we'll see what happens!

Models receive all final edits in HiRes and thumbnails size, and are required to sign a model release.

NOTE! For some reason MM doesn't alert me when I have messages. I try to check it regularly, but it may take me a couple of days to get back to you. You can always email me at, and I will get that message right away.
