"A Photographer Always..."

Aspiring Artists

"When we pick up our cameras we aspire to create... When we make images we want our images to be art. Art is very subjective and it all starts with what we like to look at and what we see in our minds eye..."
Creating art is a journey and it has to start somewhere. It starts first in your heart and takes flight through passion. No matter the medium if you feel it to make it, you will do anything to make it happen.

Nuts & Bolts to Sparkle...

My career has been a great journey of photographing nuts and bolts to beautiful things and people. I have taken some of the most mundane things and made them sparkle because I saw something mundane as a gem in the rough. It's how we see that can make all the difference in the world. Industrial Photography can be awesome, at least to me. Someone else not so much. be good at what you like to see and show it in your images.

Fine Art Photography

Stanwycks creates Photography, Paints, Paintings and Giclée's, Teaches workshops and classes and goes on Assignment either in the studio or on-location.  We all aspire to be an artist and create the best that we can.


"To Create is to be fearless..."

"I started traveling and creating images wherever and whenever I  could. To create is to be fearless, don't be afraid of what others think. If you want to do something  - you might think, it's been done before and stop before you start.  A wise woman told me once, "It's all been done before, do it anyway!"  And that has been my light to do what inspires me to try, learn, fail and do it again.

It's the fails that make you better and the wins that keep you trying for more. "

Creative Arts Life Coaching

The Art & Craft of Photography

Photography is a skill that if done with love and executed well,  becomes more than a skill, it makes you an artist or a craftsmen. We have to begin our journey learning from others and trusting their knowledge.

Stanwycks offers her knowledge and experience in her classes and workshops to help shape you on your path to Skill, Craftsmanship and Artistry.

Developing a Style

Photography is a skill and developing a style makes you unique from someone else. Their are many who pick up a camera and call themselves an artist, but being an artist that offers a style unique to their art makes them that much more unique.

Stanwycks offers her knowledge to help you develop that distinction in your work.  Developing a Style brings another layer to your work personally and as an artist.

Using Your Camera to Tell Stories...

Photography in general alludes to fun and excitement. Photography also brings one to many places both in your minds eye and in the actual photograph. We travel to exotic places with the idea in mind to create equally exotic Photographs. We are travelers, we are adventure seekers and we want to see and do more and capture it through our cameras.

However if we don't know how to do it well, all that excitement dies fast when our Photographs don't look like what we felt and saw. Good Photography creates a feeling and better photography get us excited. The old cliché that;

"A picture is worth a thousand Words!"

It's true... I would like to think and hope that some images are worth more words and some Photographs do all the talking. Wouldn't you like to be that Creator? Wouldn't you like to create pictures that spoke to your viewing audience? Take the first step with us and we will get you on that path today. We will help you understand photography and it's language so much better. You will see!

Sessions, Image Development, Critiques and Portfolios 

Weekend Workshops gives us more time to hone your photography and artists skills, by setting goals, looking at your images.  Much learning can be received by looking and seeing what may have been done differently which sparks more questions and more learning and better image development.

It's difficult to show your work and think about being judged, but we all have to start somewhere and being around caring professionals make it easier. This is how your portfolio starts and becomes special. As a Professional photographer you have to show your work in order for people to see what you can do so they hire you or buy your work. It's part of the process.
