Welcome to Mimika TV: The Creative’s Place to Embrace a Brilliant Business!
During this episode I interview via Skype Vicki Boulter award winning British photographer and digital artist.
In August 2013 Vicki-Lea was awarded the PSA Gold Medal (Photographic Society of America) for her Avant Garge Portraiture by the Royal Photographic Society. The award was given for Altered Reality, and the images feature in the current Society’s 2013 International Images for Screen Exhibition. The RPS has over 12,000 members and this most prestigious award is for ‘The Best Exhibitor in the Show’ based on the highest aggregate of scores. Besides featuring in The RPS ‘International Images for Screen Exhibition’ for 2013/2014, Vicki is in the process of organizing her very own Exhibition for 2014.
Since being made an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society in 2013, Vicki is now working on her Fellowship with them. Most recently, Vicki is delighted to have been made a Fellow of the National Photographic Society for her Avant Garde Portraiture.
Vicki’s work was featured on the front cover of the RPS Journal in 2013. Also, following a 10 page editorial in Professional Image Maker Photography Magazine entitled ‘The Art of Vicki Boulter’, Vicki experienced a large amount of editorial and publicity in 2013 and is now working with both retail and fashion clients.
In 2013 Vicki also experienced international press, and worldwide TV coverage of an image she took at a wedding going ‘viral’. The wedding photograph featuring an endangered Sumatran tiger ‘Tiger bombing’ the wedding. This hit the headlines, and besides being published in many UK papers including the Times and The Daily Express, the image was also featured on ABC News and Fox TV in the USA, and in magazines worldwide and as far away as Australia.
The artwork and photography that Vicki produces is predominantly Avant Garde. Her focus is on making powerful, beautiful images through a mixed medium of Photography and Digital Art. This is done by having a good understanding of her clients requirements, and by reflecting personalities, themes, unique skills and creative ideas in to the images she produces.
As well as her own creative work, Vicki is also one half of the photographic company ‘Devon Portfolio Photography’ along side husband Dylan Boulter; who specializes in wedding photography, and previously studied Digital Imaging Science at the University of Westminster.
