DP Lisa Wiegand Speaks to WIFC

Detroit native and LA based cinematographer Lisa Wiegand met with us in July at Daufenbach Camera. Wiegand discussed her current dream project as

Director of Photography on the hit NBC series Chicago Fire. The fire-fighting drama is shot entirely in Chicago and stars Jesse Spencer, Taylor Kinney, Eamonn Walker, David Eigenberg, Monica Raymond and Lauren German.

Wiegand has an extensive career photographing award-winning independent features and television. She’s worked on shows including Necessary Roughness, Dollhouse and The Wedding Band, an upcoming musical comedy starring Brian Austin Green, Harold Perrineau and Melora Hardin, about a group of guys who are very serious about playing cover songs at weddings and large events. The one-hour series is set to premiere on TBS later this year.

Wiegand has also been featured several times in American Cinematographer Magazine and was awarded for her “Excellence in Cinematography” by the American Society of Cinematographers. Her films have been distributed in theaters, on television, and DVD as well as seen in festivals around the world.
