Mindy Veissid Fine Art Photographer

Biography

Mindy Véissid is an innovative, award-winning international fine art photographer and creator of Art of Intuitive Photography. Her approach to photography focuses on using intuition, vulnerability and trust to show a deeper sense of who she is and what she sees. Mindy developed her style based on her frustrations of learning photography in a traditional school setting where everyone was taught to do the same thing with limited individual or creative exploration. Mindy didn’t want to be a follower (or as she puts it, a robot following the demands of others), she wasn’t interested in the technical perfection of an image – she wanted to explore and share what her heart guided her to. Mindy’s intention is that her photos tell a story or a poem, guiding the viewer deeper into her image and to show that’s it’s ok to be who you are, to trust yourself and your body (intuition). Mindy’s photos have been exhibited in the US and Europe and have been published in various magazines and websites.

Mindy created her Art of Intuitive Photography classes and workshops in 2010. In her classes, she helps her students trust their intuition and creativity creating a fun and experiential approach to photography.

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.
