About Vicki McLead

I have always loved taking pictures, even when I was a little girl; I had a small inexpensive camera and took pictures of everything. When I graduated from high school, my uncle, who was also a photographer, gave me a camera as a gift. After that I was hooked, but I didnít really get into photography until 1998 when I bought my first 35mm SLR camera, a Canon Rebel G.

I am self-taught in photography. I taught myself how to work in the darkroom, and had one in my home, where I developed and printed my own B&W film, prints and color slides.
I switched to digital in 2004, and have taken photos with several digital cameras.

I shoot scenic, landscape, close upís and macro. But what I really love to photograph is still life's. Whether they are found or something I put together in my small studio at home. I shoot in color and B&W. I don't use much flash in my photography, I mostly use natural lighting or my photo lights with soft boxes attached, and disk reflectors.
I have also done photography work for the Iowa Travel Guide, Iowa Department of Economic Development, Our Iowa Magazine and The Iowan Magazine.

I am an active member of the Photographic Society of America (PSA) organization where I am the Still Life Photography Mentor and also the instructor for the PSA's online photography course in Still Life Photography. I also have several photography articles published in the PSA Journal.
