About this pro

I work daily with musicians, artists, creative teams, actors, and families. We create a vision together, and work to implement and bring that to life. I have worked alongside of professionals in all realms of photography, learning from everyone I've been able to work with. I feel that with photographer, you learn best by actively trying, and with digital photography, you're able to quickly works towards mastery alongside of someone else. 

I love seeing others creative visions, and watching a photographer grow from being unsure, into having a clear direction and style of their own.

  • Carolyn Lederach

    She's super knowledgable about everything with photography. She's good at giving pointers and advice on best methods. She's also easy to get ahold of and fun to work with.

  • Keeley Parenteau

    She is very patient and understanding. She makes sure you understand every step of her lesson. She helped me learn about how to use color more and how to better shoot in low light situations. Would definitely recommend!

  • Sophia Silva

    Victoria is such an experienced photographer, she has so much knowledge to share. Although it can seem intimidating learning from someone who has shot for artist like Drake she breaks down her knowledge in a very communicative understandable way. She really meets you where you’re at in terms of your level of experience and understanding of photography. Highly recommended her as a teacher.

  • Elodie Nierenberg

    Victoria was a really patient and understanding teacher. I took a photography class in middle school, but forgot most of the beginner tips I learned. Victoria helped me get up to speed on basic DSLR skills so I don't have to depend on my phone camera anymore. As an amateur photographer, I really appreciated her taking things slowly with me and keeping photography fun. She's a pro. Thanks Victoria!
