Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man. Edward Steichen
Vicky Collins Photography
My passion for photography is a natural extension of the work I do as a television producer and writer. For over 25 years I have been telling stories with words and images. Through my work in network news, documentaries, show production and Olympic sports, I have used pictures to touch the lives of others.
Just as television conveys information and emotion, I believe a photograph can create a palpable response in those who see it. A photograph tells a story. It captures time and place. It awes and inspires. It can anger, entertain and evoke action. Above all, it can linger in a heart or mind for a lifetime.
I find inspiration in nature and the landscape of humanity. Through my travels I have been able to witness extraordinary beauty and incredible suffering. I have been able to capture the soul of people in communities near and far. My photographs showcase emotions and faces full of character.
My goal is that my journalistic skills and artistry will create more appreciation and compassion for the world and its inhabitants. I also hope that every picture I take tells a story and creates a special moment for those who pause to enjoy it.
