In love with photography since her first camera at summer camp (age 10), Larisa (Lil) is passionate about "capturing the moment" in color and shadow, featuring nature, people, and the landscapes of life. Whether it's her DSLR, her Panasonic Lumix (amazing zoom), or just a camera phone, there's always something to be immortalized in pixel or print. When not perched behind a computer screen wrangling code and giving websites a digital make-over, she can be found wandering with camera in hand, a look of wonder and concentration on her face. Formal and stylized is always beautiful, but she prefers to "carpe diem", living in the moment, shooting events, the occasional wedding, and everyday life.
AlterConf was a traveling conference series that provided safe opportunities for marginalized people and those who support them in the tech and gaming industries.
