Lorissa (also referred to as Lor or Lols, or by her derby name: Give ’em Hell Vetica) is a South African currently living in Charlotte, NC. She is the Co-Founder and Creative Director of a small web design studio, Being Wicked, that specialises in the publishing industry, and a photographer. She spends her days in front of a computer or behind a camera – not a bad way to pass the hours. She’s a bookworm, rugby-loving, coffee-addicted roller girl. She tends to worry too much, stress too much, and laugh a lot. (She generally hates speaking in 3rd person but apparently falls into this habit when writing bios like this).
Besides great design, her passion is in photography and she never leaves home without a camera (easy to do nowadays with smart phones). She fell in love with photography at a young age but was always rather nervous handling the family camera due to her knack for dropping things. It wasn’t until 2000, when she got her hands on her own little camera (her Canon Powershot s30), that she began to truly explore her love for photography. She now owns a variety of cameras from a snazzy Canon 7D to her somewhat broken Holga (she dropped it – surprise surprise).
