Lisa Bettany is a Canadian landscape photographer & app developer. She is cofounder of the top-ranked photography iPhone app, Camera+ which has sold over 12 million copies and is the best-selling camera app of all-time.
Lisa has received numerous accolades including, Huffington Post’s Top 30 Most Influential Photographers on the Web, FastCompany’s Most Creative People in Business, Business Insider’s Most Influential People in App Development, and Forbes’s Top Female Tech Entrepreneur.
A former Canadian competitive figure skater, with an inspiring “never say never” personality, Lisa has motivated millions to creatively capture the moments of their lives by taking great photos. When Lisa suffered a tragic back-breaking figure skating accident at 21 years-old, she was forced to give up her Olympic dreams. Bed-ridden from her injury, a close friend loaned Lisa a camera as a method to heal and explore her creativity.
As she recovered from her back injury, her photography brought back her passion for life and travel. She now resides in beautiful British Columbia and loves to hike and photograph the sea. 500px is a source of inspiration for her and being a part of such a fabulous community keeps her on her toes!
