Vicki Popwell – Master Photographic Craftsman
Vicki is the owner/manager of Vicki Popwell, portrait artist, located in Andalusia, Alabama.
Her work has been described as a “timeless art,” a compliment that Vicki truly appreciates. She feels that trends come and go, but classic portraits always remain.
If you view art books, visit a museum, or look at the walls of some of the finest homes in our country, you will find timeless portraits displayed and enjoyed. Fine portraits are designed to focus solely on the person and to illicit emotion and feelings.
Classic portraiture means the subject is well lit and composed. The elements of the portrait, including the lighting, location, furniture, backgrounds and colors, harmonize with one another. The classic portrait may be posed or unposed, tranquil or energetic, but they have one common theme- they stand alone and celebrate the individual. These portraits don’t employ easily dated elements and most importantly, they stand the test of time.
“I enjoy portraits that convey beauty, innocence and the softness that embodies the very essence of childhood,” say Vicki. For the past twenty-five years, Vicki has been a specialist in the fine portraiture of children. She operates a low-volume studio that allows her the opportunity to create a totally custom experience.
“Our portraiture is generally-time sensitive and that limits the number of clients and commissions I can complete at a time. Because of that, we often schedule weeks and months in advance. However, always contact us if you have a need…we deal with children and we would love to work with you.“ adds Vicki. “We feel that children are the greatest blessing in life and to be given the task of creating the art of children that families will treasure is a high calling and one that I don’t take lightly. It would be a pleasure to work with you.”
