Applebox Creative was born out of a need for quality photos at an affordable price. 


With three aspiring youth actors at home, founder Lisa Perez learned there is a significant difference between portrait and headshot photography--and it was difficult to find a Michigan photographer that really understood industry-standard headshots.


Being a creative quick-study who is always ready for a challenge, Lisa began following professional headshot photographers from NY and LA.  She took tutorials, read instructional guides, and got feedback from prominent agents and casting directors.  She practiced with her kids' photos, and sent them out for critique.  Before long, agents were accepting and recommending Lisa's photography, and soon Applebox Creative was officially born.

Over the years, Lisa has developed her own personal style, still keeping with the standards sought in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and LA.  Also, at the request of some clients, Lisa has branched out to include portraits, events, corporate, and promotional photography, although assisting actors with building their brand will always be her first love.
