Mindy Véissid, an award winning photographer and native New Yorker, grew up surrounded by lights, shadow and movement. Her photos reflect not only this, but also incorporate her creative background in painting and writing.
Mindy has been called an "intuitive photographer," in that she shoots from her heart, capturing candid, true and fleeting moments. Her approach to photography is based on a feeling rather than thinking approach in which she has learned to tap into her intuition to help guide her to a destination or subject.
Teaching children, teens and adults, Mindy shares how to trust oneself and how to open up and become aware of and follow our intuitive nudges. Mindy feels that in order to get a photograph which emits a story or an emotion, it must be recognized and seen for the beauty it contains. Mindy ultimately prefers to experience photography rather than doing photography.
In her digital photography workshops the Art of Intuitive Photography, she helps other photographers discover - and - follow their own intuition. Mindy has taught the Art of Intuitive Photography in institutions such as the New York Open Center in New York City, the ViewFinder Center in Zurich, Switzerland and with Idyllworks of Maine. Mindy has also presented at the B&H Photo Event Space, and has been spotlighted teaching on NBC TV, and written about in BBC Capital.
Before becoming an international fine art photographer in 2009, Mindy worked in the corporate world and lived in Luxembourg and did her MBA and worked in Switzerland.
