"Most days I wear camouflage to work. –– Lisa Loucks Christenson

Wildlife Photographer/Author


Lisa Loucks Christenson is #1 Amazon International Bestselling Award-winning author and nationally award-winning photographer, publisher of Lisa Loucks Christenson Publishing, national speaker, owner of White Wolf Creek™ Studios, and host of Lisa's Walk The Talk Show, now in its ninth season.

For the last ten years, Lisa has studied the lives of bald eagles, documenting their lives and offspring through the seasons, among other wildlife documentaries in SE Minnesota, in an area known as the driftless region. When Lisa's not in the outdoors creating educational studies for books, exhibits, films, and speaking engagements, she writes and illustrates children's books, Christian mysteries, suspense. She is the author  and registered trademark owner of the Bow Wow Detectives® book series and the Meow Meow Detectives™. Her photos and writings appear regularly in books, magazines, trade journals, print and online materials, as well as photo courses. Lisa has a diverse background in photography, publishing, sales, advertising, marketing and communications. Lisa's career also includes conducting interviews with people from all "walks of life" and sharing their stories through her show.

As an avid outdoors photographer and writer, she jokes more people see her in camouflage than a dress. She's currently on her 10th year on her Lisa's Bald Eagle Documentary™, with an extensive range of books on rare eagle behavior, bald eagles raising their offspring through the seasons, and her footage for a full length DVD will all be released on a future date.

Her exhibits books, art cards, sketches and illustrations reproduced from her journals, wildlife art are for sale at  White Wolf Creek™, Fudge Corner™,  Amazon, and other online stores.

 Lisa's available for speaking, educational presentations on her bald eagle and other wildlife documentaries, and her Bow Wow Detectives® books, and other topics.

 Her work has been featured at The National Eagle Center, KTTC News (5/21/08 and 7/11/08), KAAL (12/06), The Rochester Visitor, Post-Bulletin, Ron Schara's MN Bound (3/29/09), The Big Wild (2007, 2008, 2009), and more.

Lisa  is a member of ASMP, RWA, NATJA, and SCBWI.

Depot House Blues by Lisa Loucks Christenson
Suzanne Sonnet's name worked like a secret charm, giving her the second glance she sometimes needed beyond her stare-worthy acorn brown eyes, waist long flowing chestnut locks that hung in layers beyond a near perfect smile, one that was perfectly centered between the shadowed depths of her dimpled cheeks, and on occasion, opened opportunities for her where none existed. ...

Life in the nest
By Meghan Sparks Life in the nest Posted: May 19, 2008 10:35 PM Whitewater Valley, MN (KTTC-TV) -- It's another day on Lisa Christenson's journey. A journey she captures through the lens of her camera. Nature photographer Lisa Christenson started down this path four years ago. She was studying the sandhill cranes in the Whitewater Valley, but the small white heads of the bald eagle caught her attention. Lisa Christenson says, "I heard that faint cry of an eaglet and I said this is cool and I will be back here every day until he flies and i was." . . . "Every day is a new story for me, " Lisa says, "and I don't go home until I get my story."
