A Little About Vicki Stanwycks

We have been doing workshops for more than 15 years. Vicki Stanwycks has been a commercial photographer for more than 25 years, earning her the title of Master Photographer... shooting commercial advertising, aerial, models, industrial, corporate, events - people, places and things.

She also owned a Gallery on Magazine Street for a few years creating all kinds of images for commercial use and  fine art. She now has her Studios on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi and travels to New Orleans and all over the United States for assignments, and creating fine art.

Since 2010, she has also become a life coach and stresses creativity in her some of her coaching programs, and  incorporates that into her classes and workshops to help you bring out the best in your images. She offers workshops and classes for individuals and small groups.

"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

Discovering, Unblocking and Recreating the Artist Within

Lifecoaching Sessions, Photography, Discussions and recreating the artist within...

Attendees should bring to these classes/workshops their camera and gear, laptop and software that they use for their Photographs. Please bring at least 35 of your latest images so we can look at where you are now. There will be life coaching sessions, discussions, writing exercises, shooting at various locations, possible computer processes demonstrations. We will create images together based on your discovery and coaching sessions. Be prepared to talk with your Life coach about various subjects as realized through the creative process.

Being creative for self satisfaction, feeling good, and even excited about what you want to accomplish takes motivation and a clear mind. If your mind is jumbled and your life is crazy the creative process can be tainted, you can feel negatively challenged, hence making the creative process seem like climbing a huge mountain. 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. These 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.

Exposure, Color & Light Photography Workshop

On - Location Photography, Working with Exposure, Color & Light

In order to create an image, we need light... We cover the basics of light and how to see, measure and track the light. This workshop is for the natural light enthusiast who respects and loves the landscape and realizes that light has many aspects from exposure and color to capture.  This workshop brings your photography to the Next Level, better images. Knowing light and how to manipulate, see and track the light will make all the difference to your images. Anyone can shoot a picture, it's what we do with the light that makes all the difference to the quality of the image.

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...
