"I took a one on one class with Ms. Vicki, and it was absolutely amazing. She was such a nice person and made me feel extremely comfortable. In the few days I was there, she taught me a lot and made me more confident with capturing photographs. I am hoping to take more classes with her in the future to further my love for photography. I would definitely recommend her to anyone I know that it is interested in photography. Thank you Ms. Vicki!"  -Tyniesha Williams

Photography Workflow and Digital Processing

You have shot all these images and you have to do something with them so you can work with them to make prints, organize them, and edit the images to make them look good. However, you don't know how. You may know some of what to do, read books, watched You Tube, but it's not making a whole lot of sense - as the person in the video is talking fast.  We can help you make sense of it in our Photography workflow/Processing classes. You will have a much better understanding of the software and the terminology and "how to," get more from your images. Check out the Workflow page...

Being creative for self satisfaction, feeling good, and even excited about what you want to accomplish takes motivation and a clear mind.

The creative process is different for everyone. This workshop is focused on you, figuring our what makes you come alive creatively, like you once were or perhaps simply different so you can find the creatively that has somehow gotten locked away and why.

Artists workshops have been a good place to start to get you seeing and feeling your creative self once again. If you are struggling this could be just what you need.

Shooting Images to Post Production

The Beginners Weekend Workshop

In this Workshop we spend the whole weekend dedicated to getting you more comfortable with your camera.

We have a class to begin and discuss the camera and light, and address your questions and ideas.  Then venture off to shoot and create photographs on location.   Vicki Stanwycks is with you every step of the way working with you to create images and answer your questions while shooting. The next day we have class, shoot for a few hours, there is a  break for lunch and work with the images you have created and address how to edit. It makes for a very good weekend.

Classes, Critiques and Workflow

Weekend Workshops give you more concentrated time to hone your photography skills using classes, and shooting - by looking at what you've done while shooting, then following a critique of your work.

Much learning can be received by looking and seeing what might  have done differently which sparks more questions and more learning.

Starting the Creative Process

Being creative for self satisfaction, feeling good, and excited about what you want to accomplish takes motivation and a clear mind.

The creative process is different for everyone. Taking a workshop is focused on you, to help figure out what you want to do with your photography, your Photographic Journey.

Photography workshops have been a good place to start to get you seeing and feeling your creative self start. If you are struggling with your camera, this could be just what you need.

TESTIMONIALS

"I attended Vicki's photography workshop for beginners earlier this year, and it was an excellent experience. Looking forward to attending more!" --James Fanguy 

"Best workshop I have ever taken. Vicki went above and beyond my expectations. She provided excellent, personalized instruction, based on a customized workshop design.

She also shared a LOT of great insights based on helping me to assess my own style, taking me out to shoot in the kinds of locations suited to my needs, and then providing interactive coaching and feedback.

As a result of taking her workshop, I am going to become a much better photographer. Even before the course was done, I had already made significant improvements. I highly recommend her services." -Darren Olson, June 25th
